Full description
Drive to the rafting base in Klidonia, on the main road from Aristi village to Papingo village. There the rafting team will welcome at 10:30 AM and provide you with the necessary safety equipment. When ready, a minibus will transfer you to the starting location, the bridge of Aristi-Papigo. During the transfer you will have impressive views of Mt. Tymphi, Astraka towers and Papigo villages. A safety briefing will follow, some river practice and off you go! During the descent, the group will stop for an optional refreshing dive in Voidomati’s crystal clear waters and visit the deserted 16th-century Agioi Anargyroi monastery. On the final stage of the trip, the boat groups paddle under Klidonia’s stone bridge artificial waterfalls. The descent finishes shortly after Klidonia’s bridge just outside the rafting base. One thing is certain; by the time you reach the end, at approximately 1:30 PM, you’ll wish you could start all over again!

A great activity with our 2 teenagers, we enjoyed these few hours of rafting, even if it was rather calm, the landscapes were beautiful… the contrast between the trees, the rock and the turquoise water was magnificent! We made a short stop to soak our feet, see bathing for the less cautious and it was very nice. On the way back, an on-site restaurant allows you to have lunch, which is quite practical after these 3 hours.

It was awesome !! Absolute highlight of our road trip. We booked very spontaneously (around 9 p.m. the evening before) and were able to join the tour the next day at 10 a.m., which was great. Our guide was Kristus and he did a really great job and entertained us very well. I would like to highlight the mix of action, fun and interesting information about the river, the habitat of the animals and also the history. We were well instructed “Team Rocket, Go!” And were therefore able to make great progress as a team on the rafting boats. Our group was small (4 people and a guide) and that was a lot of fun. We can heartily recommend Trekking Hellas Ioannina Rafting. For our vacation it was the best venture!
