Canyoning in Pelion
During your stay in Pelion, exploring canyons will make you understand that they stand out from the rest in three points. First, their vegetation; second, the beautiful beaches you find at the end of canyon where water finish to flow until the sea and third, due to the Centaurs’ legends hidden within them, of course! The combination of both canyoning and swimming in the sea is a rare feature!
The canyons names are Mega Galanorema, Centaurs, Big Rock, Mylopotamos, Fakistra, Damouhari, Limniona and Lambimou. The most notable and admirable routes to reach the canyons are Tsagarada, Kissos, Xourihti, Zagora and Lambinou.
All the canyons end up on beautiful beaches! The Centaurs’ canyons, in combination with the geomythology of the region, make a challenging curiosity!
The marvelous 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 those canyons!
Mountain Escapes’ instructors are selected for their maturity, judgment, teaching experience and outdoor skills. A genuine interest in people and passion for teaching are as important as an extensive canyoning resume. During all your activities, the security guards will be very watchful to avoid any unwanted proceedings. Despite all the fun and games, this sport requires the guidance of an expert.
