Acheron River, Greece - Αχέροντας ποταμός

The springs of Acheron River is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Acheron River is located 25km from Parga and 44km from Preveza (Greece), in a beautiful surrounding with rich vegetation and crystalline waters which comprise a unique natural landscape. The river springs from the area known by the name of the village Glykí at an altitude of 1.600 metres in the mountains of Soúli and discharges in the area of Ammoudiá on the Ionian coast. The Acheron River is an ecosystem that is recognized and a protected area by the Natura 2000 Network. In Ancient Greek mythology the river Acheron was known as the river of pain and was one of the five rivers of the Greek underworld. According to legend, the souls of the dead were transported to the other side of the river Acheron, towards the god of the underground world Hades, and the goddess Thetis bathed her son Achilles in this river, holding him for heel, giving him immortality. Today, Acheron River is an attraction for tourists, where they can try rafting, canoeing, mountain biking, fishing, but above all where they can enjoy the beautiful nature. Along the river there are several restaurants and cafes. You can use a trip to this river to visit the Nekromanteion, an ancient sanctuary dedicated to the god of the underworld, Hades. In it, the communication with dead souls took part, and visit to the crypts and corridors that led to the underground world can be so exciting. You can watch the video about The Archaeological site of the Nekromanteion - Ancient Greek oracle of the dead on the link below:

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

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!

In ancient Greek mythology, Acheron was known as the river of pain, and was one of the five rivers of the Greek underworld. In the Homeric poems the Acheron was described as a river of Hades, into which Cocytus and Phlegethon both flowed.
