Join us on this guided, 9-day tour as we travel to remote corners of Laptokarya to enjoy canyoning in some of the best canyons in Greece. Canyoning is definitely one of the youngest outdoor activities, probably because the equipment required for canyoning have not been there for a long time, and one that must be experienced.

Participate in this mixture of speleology, mountaineering, swimming, water jumping and trekking. Come across beautiful canyons decorated with numerous tall cliffs and turquoise pools. Travel to see the Meteora, one of the most unique rock formations in the region. Also get the chance to explore one of the largest complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries.

Tired after conquering the mighty rocks? Spend your time relaxing on pristine beaches on the last 2 days of the tour. We will drive you back to the airport in time to catch your flight.

Other Practical InformationWhat is canyoning: Canyoning, also known as gorge walking, is probably best described as white water rafting without the boat. Canyoners navigate their way down water filled gorges by swimming through rock pools, sliding down chutes and clambering over the rocks and other unique features of a canyon. This pastime combines elements from different outdoor disciplines, including scrambling, abseiling, cliff jumping and swimming and requires local knowledge and rope-rigging skills to be done safely. What’s a canyon like: Canyons usually range from easy to medium in difficulty. You will spend between 3 to 6 hours in canyons. The canyons you will be travelling to are easy accessible. Before the activity starts, we will provide you with training and education on how to use the equipment. What’s Thessaloniki like Thessaloniki is one of the biggest and nicest cities in Greece. Plenty of places are there for shopping, eating and strolling around. The Meteora is a rock formation in central Greece hosting one of the largest and most precipitously built complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries, second in importance only to Mount Athos. It is an easy hike through. What skills/experience/fitness do I need? You need no experience for this. Your guide and instructor will give you full instructions and a safety briefing at the start.
