Rafting and kayaking spots in Greece combine wild natural beauty, riverside biodiversity and water rushing at high speeds through gorges or plains. Greece’s countryside is filled with rivers which snake through the mountains, either great and gentle or small and turbulent.
In the northern part of Greece, visitors will come across Aliakmonas river, which is the biggest in the country and Nestos river, which meanders to the sea. In the western part of Greece you will find Axios and Aoos rivers, where the latter is considered as Europe’s most exciting spot for kayakers. Peloponnese has its own rivers and Alfeios, Lousios and Evrotas in Laconia are ideal spots for the river trekkers seeking an adrenaline boost.
Rafting - Kayaking requires specific equipment and techniques that must be adapted to the natural environment. For this reason it is strongly advised that you 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, rafting - kayaking schools will provide you with all necessary technical equipment, we encourage you to 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.
