In the Pindos mountain range, in Epirus, the most mountainous region of Greece, are the sources of most of the largest and most beautiful rivers in Greece.
Rivers of all degrees of difficulty, for all requirements, which you can descend with inflatable rafting boats, with two-seater inflatable “hot-dog” boats or with single-seater “monoraft” boats.
Rafting is becoming more and more popular and is constantly gaining new friends, and it is becoming the natural way to see and admire the unspoilt nature of the continent. Experience and fitness are necessary on some rivers, but in all of them, knowledge of swimming and a willingness to play with the wet element are required.
To participate in rafting descents, one must start on rivers of 1st – 2nd degree of difficulty and then progress to rivers of higher difficulty.
The meeting, after contacting us for the exact number of your group, takes place at our base, at the bridge of Plaka, in Tzoumerka for the Arachthos or at the bridge of Klidonia for the Voidomatis.
You come for your independence with your car.
The comfort and safety equipment is provided in full by Via natura and includes: special neoprene overalls, fleece, windbreaker, gloves, socks and neoprene shoes.
Of course life jackets, life helmets and paddles.
All you need to bring is a swimsuit or a second pair of underwear and a towel.
For safety reasons the boat carries up to 6 people, under the control of a professional guide who will give the instructions and theoretical knowledge necessary for your descent.
Participation is allowed to persons over 6 years old.
Of course be prepared to get wet…
*Our guides are certified by the International Rafting Federation / IRF
The inflatable boats we use in rafting are of various sizes. A larger boat means more comfort and roominess but more weight and difficulty in manoeuvring.
The boats we usually use in rafting accommodate up to 8 people and the guide (depending on the difficulty of the river). Each boat has a safety valve (screwed), which is used to inflate or deflate the boat if necessary. The personal equipment provided includes the paddle, helmet and life jacket.
The driver will ask you to sit in the correct position, sharing the weight symmetrically. Make sure you sit comfortably in a way that does not prevent you from rowing.
During the ride, you should not make any sudden movements or shifts and changes of position because they can cause a minor accident (a “passenger” falling into the water).
Be careful not to carry things in your pockets (unless they are zipped up) as well as items such as cameras, cameras, etc. which if dropped in the river may be lost.
