The gates to the underworld in Greek mythology. Really worth going there if you are in the area. Be prepared with shoes which can be worn in the river as it is very painful to walk barefoot with all the pebbles

Absolutely fantastic and unique experience (wading/swimming up the gateway to the underworld). The natural beauty was incredible. Be prepared to get wet. You can wade with shorts so far, but if you want to continue further you need to swim (we bought swimwear with us...More

A side of Greece we'd never seen before. Well worth a visit. Take water. If you want to wade in the river, which apparently you have to do to get to the higher reaches, take suitable footwear or buy them from the kiosk before you...More

We visited as part of a Thomson organised tour. Our guide Natasha was well informed and friendly; she joined us for a ramble through the woods and down the river bed, braving the COLD water! The river itself is crystal clear and with water shoes...More

Hi, we had a hire care, so it was easy for us, but there are many coach trips to the river. There are many stalls/little tour shops that sell the trips. We only heard good things about them, so you'll be ok. I shouldn't... More
