Activity description

Canyoning in the mountain of the Centaurs (Pelion)
All the canyons proposed by Mountain Escapes end up on beautiful beaches and offer epic moments for those who want to combine adrenaline and nature. While descending the Centaurs’ canyons, you will learn about the myths of this region and discover its beauty. 

You'll be exposed to the marvellous view of the Aegean while surrounded by the flawless flora and fauna and enchanting beaches. The experience will leave you with a lifetime of fantastic memories.

Interesting fact: The spectacular beaches in eastern Pelion used to be the destination of the mythical Centaurs, they would often go there after crossing the canyons!

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.

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.
