Absolute amazing experience, the whole area was breathtaking! The river has the most clear and blue waters we've ever seen. We managed to cover a large part of the river and I was even brave enough to have a swim. An exhilarating experience that made our holiday for us.

Take your beach shoes as walking in the river is a must especially in the hot weather as the water is freezing.

Then we had lunch by the river. The restaurant was on the river beach with the river running past. It was so lovely and... More

We went on a trip that we had booked to this river. Boy was it cold. I didn't make it all the way up as I have problems with balance and as I couldn't see the bottom as there was a rew of us I kept falling over.

Worth a visit. Stepped into the icy water but soon became acclimatised. Spectacular scenery and in parts quite difficult to walk against the strong current. Due to heavy rain it was quite deep in parts and we had to swim.

For about an hpur we walked in a really beautiful pathway next to a river canal with crystal clear waters. The scenery is really amazing through old trees of different forms and shapes. We had to return back as our path was obstructed by ice cold waters passing through. So unfortunately we did not succeed to go until the point... More

Beautiful beautiful beautiful. It is a must place to visit in you are in the area. It is so pretty and serine and the water is sooo cold, but you have to go in. The coach trips to the river (the river stick in Greek mythology) are good, we have been told. But, we had our own car, so drove... More

Great trip from Parga by rental car; the road to the Acheron River goes through some nice valleys with great views.
