Overview

Have you always wanted to try an extreme sport, but you never dared to take the first step? We did it, and we loved it! Join us in a new adventure, a rafting trip to the amazing rivers of Ipiros, and spend your day practicing extreme sports with the guarantee and safety of your local tour operator. No experience needed!  Rafting offers direct contact with the river waters while going through majestic landscapes seen from a new point of view. Our crew will assist you anytime, and you will feel safe, fun, and comfortable on a journey you will never forget.

You will also enjoy the peaceful scenery of North Tzoumerka, have lunch in a local tavern, and visit the famous Kouiassa stone bridge and waterfalls.

Starting from Corfu Port (if you choose the option with transfer), or from Igoumenitsa, we will drive you through the landscapes of Tzoumerka until the ancient Politsa stone bridge. Then, the adventure will start!

Arachtos river is the 8th biggest river in Greece. Surrendered by impressive forests and canyons, full of birdlife and with crystal clear waters, thousands of adventure seekers from all over the world love this area for river rafting. Once there, you will be given specialized rafting equipment that has been approved by proper health standards. (Sterilized waterproof suits, shoes, paddles, helmets, and life jackets). There will be 20 minutes brief on how to descend the river, then your adventure begins. The activity takes about 4 hours and it will end just near the Plaka stone bridge, one of the most famous places in Epirus, a fine construction built upon the order of Ottoman Sultan Abdulaziz and completed in 1866.

After the thrilling experience, we will drive to a small mountain village, where you will have free time to relax and have lunch in one of the local taverns (lunch not included in the tour)

You cannot leave this area without visiting the amazing area of North Tzoumerka: After a short 30-minute drive, we will stop to admire an ancient monastery, and then we will have a beautiful afternoon hike to reach one of the most beautiful areas of Greece, by a short hiking path with a magical view among green forests, wild orchids, and moss. We will return to our vehicle, back to Igoumenitsa port, and back to Corfu, where the excursion will end.
