Activity description

Canyoning consists of descending the lowest point of a water drainage. This includes a wide range of features such as creeks, streams, rivers, gorges with or without water and fast moving or not, waterfalls and natural water pools.

This fun activity is based on moving down the canyon and passing through many natural obstacles. The obstacles vary depending on the canyon, to get through them you'll have to: walk, swim, jump, slide, down-climb, abseil and maybe even zip-line! Canyoning requires specific equipment and techniques that must be adapted to the natural environment.

Canyoning in the mountain of the Centaurs (Pelion)
All the canyons proposed by Mountain Escapes end up on beautiful beaches! The Centaurs’ canyons combine geology with mythology of the region!

You'll be exposed to the marvellous view of the Aegean during the descent of the canyons whilst surrounded by the beautiful nature and enchanting beaches! All of which will charm you, leaving you with with a lifetime of fantastic memories.

The spectacular beaches in eastern Pelion used to be the destination of the mythical Centaurs, they would often arrive here after crossing the canyons!

My girlfriend and I went in late december and loved it. We had virtually no prior experience, it was freezing cold out, we signed up a few days before the trip, and we didn't know Greek. It was great. They had wetsuits, so we were warm, and the guides knew english and were very experienced and friendly. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
