Acheron River

In ancient times Acheron was believed to be the river crossed by the god Hermes, the “conductor of souls”, who was delivering them to Charon, in order to be carried to the kingdom of Hades. It springs near the village of Glyki in the prefecture of Thesprotia, and empties into the Ionian Sea.

Its frozen waters form a landscape of incomparable beauty. Acheron hosts a lot of flora and fauna, which visitors can admire through plenty of activities such as horse riding, rafting, canoe-kayaking, nature watching and much more.
