    Amazing scenery and experience
    As mentioned in other reviews the water is very cold but you soon get used to it. Walking further up there are pools of cooler water where the springs fall down the rocks into the river. We didn't make it all the way because we have a young girl and struggled against the current in some places. It gets easier though after the first swimming part. You definitely need water shoes and a water tight bag. Stop for a meal or a drink at the bar on the opposite bank on the way back. The prices are reasonable. One of the best things we did during our holiday in Greece. We liked it so much we went two days running! The scenery is just amazing.

    Am essential experience you won't regret!
    Having visited Parga in June we read about this place but didn't have time to visit. Returning in September it was a priority, and as we didn't have a car we booked through a local travel agent, €20 each. ( Apollonian travel ?? ) I am so glad we did, I would say it was one of my best days ! The springs are gorgeous.. wear swimwear or anything you don't mind getting wet.. we took a waterproof bag ( as recommended on here ) and put our bits in there .. and wet shoes are a must ! The spring is really cold at first but you get used to it.. deep at times and you have to swim..it was lovely. Thoroughly recommended. The rafting was good ..only €5-7 per person. I did the zip wire, too, which was fun ( €15) Excellent day our!

    Fantastic experience, walking in nature. Beautiful clear water in great surroundings
    This is an absolute must ! We loved it, such a unique experience, and the water wasn't as freezing as I was expecting after reading reviews. There's a section youll need to swim in and if I can do it anyone can, ita approx 10 meters long, the rest is paddling. I hate cold water. Don't let that put you off, just do it. It's an exhilarating experience that you will remember forever. Wear beach shoes and take a waterproof bag for your car keys/mobiles and you're sorted. There's a restaurant in the car park too if you need refreshments. You can buy your water shoes and waterproof bags at the car park too. There's also an info desk if you want to get more info for where to go or to enquire about the rafting or horse riding options too. Have fun, we loved it. 😍

    Day trip
    We hired a car to visit Acheron River. We thoroughly enjoyed walking in the river and swimming the short bit when we had to. Definitely need beach shoes, we sadly could not take our phones as we didn't have a waterproof bag. It was breathtaking! Unfortunately the earlier experience on the rafting was not so good. We paid 25 euro each for 35mins. We were put on a raft with about 9 other people who were extremely loud. Don't get me wrong ,we are fun people ,but these people did spoil our experience as we felt deafened. Sadly we didn't time the trip bit we are sure it was short of 35 mins Although it was fun, we felt ripped off and disappointed. Afterwards we drove to Souli water mill which was quaint and idyllic. The river ran througj it, with small springs. The lunch was AMAZING, delicious Greek salad, fresh bread and Chips, beer, along with complimentary dips.

An awesome place. River Styx, where Achilles was put to get immunity (not the heel held by his mother). So beautiful and clear waters, some entering from underground

We had an amazing experience as when we went it was the end of the season and reasonably quiet. A very knowledgable tour guide.

We visited the river and we had a fantastic experience with the boat in Acheron and the guide tour that Bassilis gave us was very relaxing!
Beautiful place and very clear waters.
