Overview

CANYONING IN PELION

During your stay in Pelion, you can go down some of the canyons in Pelion and you will understand that they stand out from the rest of the canyons in three points. They stand out due to their vegetation, the beautiful beaches to which each of them flows into the sea and, of course, due to the Centaurs’ legend, which are hidden in them. The combination of the canyoning as well as the swimming in the sea is rare!

The most admirable routes for canyoning are 5 and particularly at Tsagarada, Xourihti and Lambinou. The canyons are those in Mylopotamos, Fakistra, Damouhari, Limniona and Lambimou. All the canyons end up in beautiful beaches. The Centaurs’ canyons regarding the geomythology of the region, is a challenge. The marvellous view of the Aegean during the descent in the canyons, the beautiful nature and the enchanting beaches will charm and satisfy you. The beautiful beaches at the eastern Pelion used to be the destination of the mythical Centaurs where they arrived after crossing these canyons! The legend by itself appeals to every visitor while feeling the awe as well as the grandeur of the nature. The combination of the charming beaches, the natural beauty of Pelion and the organized descent in the canyons by the distinguished leaders and their fellow workers consist a challenge.
