Πηγές Αχέροντα & Πύλες του Άδη
Στα σύνορα των νομών Πρέβεζας & Θεσπρωτίας στην Γλυκή ο ποταμός Αχέροντας.
Ο Αχέρων (Αχέροντας στη δημοτική) είναι ποταμός της περιφέρειας Ηπείρου και διασχίζει τους νομούς Ιωαννίνων, Θεσπρωτίας και Πρεβέζης.[1] Οι πηγές του Αχέροντα είναι πολλές. Οι πρώτες πηγές του προέρχονται από τα χιόνια του όρους Τόμαρος στο Νομό Ιωαννίνων (μέγιστο υψόμετρο 1.986m), και οι άλλες πηγές του προέρχονται από τα όρη Σουλίου και τα όρη Παραμυθιάς Θεσπρωτίας. Σημαντικές πηγές είναι επίσης αυτές του χωριού Βουβοπόταμος Πρέβεζας κοντά στη Γλυκή Θεσπρωτίας. Ο Αχέρων εκβάλλει στο Ιόνιο Πέλαγος, στο χωριό Αμμουδιά της Πρέβεζας, όπου σχηματίζει δέλτα, από το οποίο διαμορφώνονται τα δύο κύρια έλη της περιοχής, το έλος της Σπλάντζας και της Βαλανιδορράχης. Ο Αχέρων, λόγω του Νεκρομαντείου του Αχέροντα, της αρχαίας παράδοσης και της περιβαλλοντικής αξίας προσελκύει χιλιάδες επισκεπτών από τις πηγές έως και τις εκβολές του. Το μήκος του ανέρχεται στα 52 χιλιόμετρα ενώ από τα νερά του αρδεύονται περίπου 85.000 στρέμματα, εκ των οποίων 28.000 βρίσκονται στο Νομό Θεσπρωτίας και 57.000 στο Νομό Πρεβέζης.

Aherontas river - Αχέροντας ποταμός



Ένα ταξίδι στον Ποταμό της λύπης, ο προθάλαμος του Κάτω Κόσμου, η τελευταία διαδρομή των ανθρώπινων ψυχών… Ο Αχέροντας κουβαλάει στα νερά του πλήθος μυθολογικών αναφορών. Τραγική περίπτωση η απέλπιδα προσπάθεια του Ορφέα να διεκδικήσει από τους υποχθόνιους θεούς του σκότους την αγαπημένη σύζυγό του Ευρυδίκη και να την οδηγήσει ξανά στη γη του φωτός.
A trip to the river of sorrow, the antechamber of the Underworld, the last journey of human souls ... Acheron carries in its multitude of mythological references waters. Tragic case the desperate attempt of Orpheus claim by infernal gods of darkness beloved wife Eurydice and lead it back into the light earth.

Acheron River
Steeped in ancient mythology and drenched in natural beauty, the Acheron River is a must-visit on your holiday to Parga. With a source over 50 kilometres from Parga, the river flows into Ionian Sea in Ammoudia.

This little seaside village is less than 20 kilometres away from Parga by road, a journey that takes around 25 minutes. There are a number of places you can head to where you can enjoy the waters of the Acheron River though, and there are tours that take you to some of the best bits.

In ancient Greek mythology, the Acheron was one of the underworld’s five rivers, and it had to be crossed by the newly dead. It was known for its healing properties, where sins could be washed away, rather than as a place of punishment like the Cocytus, which means the ‘river of wailing’.

Try to visit on a warm day, when the refreshing water’s a real treat. It’s not hard to conjure up thoughts of the river’s healing powers as you splash your way through the shallow current. You’ll wade through the crystal clear water surrounded by rocky slopes, steep cliffs, and lush vegetation.

If you have a waterproof camera then you’ll get some great photos to take home with you. Keep your eye out for birds of prey circling above too, as you amble past striking rock formations and pretty waterfalls.

For something a bit different, you can ride a horse through the river, or go rafting instead. After
paddling down rapids, stop for a picnic beside the water as you take in the beautiful scenery. When you return to Parga, head to Sugar Bar and raise a toast to your day at the Acheron River.

Acheron River, Best of Greece: the mythical gate to the Underworld - Epirus travel guide

Trekking the Acheron valley
According to mythology, the shades of the dead inhabited this valley. Hermes, in his guise as guide of the dead, and Charon would lead the shades down the Acheron River and the Lake Acherousian to Hades. Nowadays, only the call of the wild inhabits the valley, inviting you to come river trekking down the Acheron. You start at the village of Glyki, about 40km from Igoumenitsa. The landscape in uniquely charged and the experience unforgettable.
Angelina Jolie was here a couple of years ago and she just knows the best places to visit!

I urge you to start walking inside the river as far as you can. Most people do not walk more than 500 meters. Yet, the more you walk where no one else follows, the more you feel a part of the landscape; a unique feeling that you are somehow completing the picture of this bracing wilderness, just you alone and the water. By turns, its currents are deep and fast, and then shallow and soothing; they grab you for a vigorous tussle with the elements or lead you silently to beautiful pools they have sculpted out of the river banks. Tiny fish scuttle around your feet … so far no snakes! After a while you get used to the cold and you accept the temperature as if it were normal.

You’ll open up to a sensation of absolute freedom. You’ll while away the hours in the blissful company of friends. They’ll be time also for a bite to eat in a couple of handily placed taverns or maybe even a go at rafting- now it’s your turn to be the master of these dark waters!

Acheron is indeed the heaven on earth

When you look back on your experience of the Acheron, peace and tranquility will flood your soul and you’ll be borne on its generous whirling current all over again. This will be the moment when you realize that no matter how darkly tarnished by the brush of mythology, here is a place that in truth is a little piece of heaven on earth. Damned no longer… except for the damned fine job that nature has done in putting the record straight!

Acheron River in Parga, Epirus: The springs of Acheron River is an area of outstanding natural beauty located at the border of Thesprotia and Preveza, close to the villages of Kanalaki and Glyki. Apart from the natural beauty, the springs of Acheron is known worldwide for its mythological contents. In ancient Greek mythology, Acheron was one of the five rivers of the Greek underworld.

According to the tradition, Zeus was devastated when the Titans drunk from the water and then he condemned the river to remain eternally under the earth while its water became darker. Acheron River is located 25km from Parga, in a beautiful surrounding with rich vegetation and crystalline waters which comprise a unique natural landscape. In many parts of the river where the water flow is normal, there are lakes and water pits which have the ideal living conditions for many amphibians and fish. In other locations, the river flows impetuously through steep and precipitate high cliffs. In the rocky side slopes of Acheron, there are many birds of prey that nest in the forest slopes of the canyon.

Acheron River comprises a fantastic short trip for its magnificent transparent water and the surrounding rocky landscape. It is actually one of the least known places in Parga thus it retains its unspoiled natural beauty and secret energy. It flows from the mountains of Souli Epirus and after a long way, it reaches the Ionian Sea in Ammoudia beach.

Just a few km away from the sea, there is a forest with plants growing in the water, looking almost exotic due to their weird shape. After you cross the forest, you will see the edge of the river, reaching the imposing roman bridge, an ideal place for a picnic. There is no doubt that Acheron is a magnificent location with white rocks reflecting in the blue-green water. Today, Acheron River is an ecosystem that is recognized and a protected area by the Natura 2000 Network.

AKHERON (Acheron) was the god of the underworld river and lake of pain. The daimon Kharon (Charon) ferried the souls of the dead across its dark waters in his skiff.
