Canyoning holidays in Greece are a combination of wild natural beauty, white water and impressive gorges. However, be advised that only a few of Greece’s wild gorges are suitable for beginners and a high level of canyoning experience is often required. Movements through a canyon usually include activities such as hiking, swimming, jumping, sliding, down-climbing, rappelling/abseiling and other rope progression techniques. There are many gorges and mountainous areas in the country where canyoning is organized. To name a few, particularly popular are the gorges in Mt Olympus, in central Greece and the gorges in the Epirus region.
Canyoning requires specific equipment and techniques that must be adapted to the natural environment. That is why, we advise you to check regularly our ‘Schools / Clubs’ section, in order to get in contact with nearby qualified instructors, that will introduce you safely to this exciting activity. Although, canyoning schools will provide you with all necessary technical equipment, we suggest that you visit our ‘Equipment Shops’ section, in order to choose your technical apparel. Furthermore, we highly recommend you to visit our ‘Accommodation’ section, for nearby accommodation arrangements.
