Activity description

Explore the ancient Greek gorge of Kallithea on this canyoning adventure near Athens.

Hidden high in the Attica hillside, Kallithea Gorge is a dramatic landscape carved over centuries by mountain springs that travel towards the sea. Navigate this scenic canyon downstream from the Peloponnese countryside, following waterfalls and babbling brooks deep into the heart of the ravine – swimming, scrambling and climbing with the freshwater flow…

Kallithea is 850 m long and has 21 descents (highest 20 m) with lakes a few jumps and 2 slides. It can be reached from central Athens via car (1h 30 mins).
