Canyoning

You can do canyoning in the area of Mylopotamos village just 20 minutes’ drive from our hotel!

What is canyoning? It is the descent into a gorge. Walking in the bed of the gorges and descending waterfalls by rope, using the technique of Rappel (belaying).  In small groups, 6 -10 people, always accompanied by at least two experienced mountain guides / instructors.

Usually there are organized tours from March to November, choosing canyons which still have good water flow during the summer months.

The gorge Milopotamos has rich vegetation and the 8 consecutive rappels from 5 to 20 meters ends in one of the most beautiful beaches of Pelion.
