Acheron River Safari - The River Styx of Greek Myth
You start your adventure with a 5 minute walk through the Old town of Parga where you board your coach for a drive to the beautiful Gliki village. This little village sits inland next to the picturesque Acheron river. Acheron was known as the mystical river Styx of Greek mythology believed to lead to the entrance of the underworld and Kingdom of Hades. Following a 10 minutes walk from the village you reach the banks of the river where your exploration will start. You change into your swimming suit and waterproof shoes and wade into the clear waters. The river is very shallow in most parts and flows peacefully through the spectacular Gliki gorge. As the gorge gets narrow the water level gradually rises but you will be able to stop at the depth you feel most comfortable with. Finish your exploration with a refreshing glass of wine and a snack of fresh baked chicken with Greek salad and bread at a riverside tavern before your return to the yacht.
Notes: Bring your swimwear, waterproof shoes and a towel. The air-conditioned coach ride to Gliki village takes about half and hour.
