Activity description

Enjoy a unique rafting experience in two of the most beautiful rivers of Greece. River Lousios after running 5 kilometers through its gorge falls into river Alfios. Then the water follows its natural way to the Ionian Sea.

According to Greek mythology, Alfios flows through the Ionian sea reaching to Sicily. The variations in the scenery, the lush vegetation, and the impressive rock formations give a clear view of the natural environment of the river that can be explored only by rafting descents.

The rafting excursion begins at the bridge of Atsicholos in Arcadia. Fully equipped, and with the help of experienced river guides, you will be descending Lousios river. During the descent, you will enjoy a fabulous natural environment with crystal clear waters. After passing 3km in river Lousios, you will enter the largest river of the Peloponnese Alfios, going on for another 3 kilometers until the end of this rafting experience.

The difficulty of the rapids is easy to moderate on level 2-3 based on the international scale. During summer months, the river conditions and the volume of water make this activity easy and suitable for everyone, beginners and families. In the rest of the year depending on the frequency of rainfall and the water level, the activity is ideal for those seeking more action and strong emotions.

No previous experience is required.
