Just a short journey along the coast from Parga lies the mouth of the River Acheron (also known as the River Styx from mythology). This mystical river plays a big part in Greek mythology as the river that leads to the Underworld and the Kingdom of Hades. 

Take a boat ride along this infamous river and view the abundance of wildlife, flora and forna. Turtles can be seen bathing in the sunshine and kingfishers nest in the river's banks.

On return we travel inland to the village of Gliki for lunch. Lunch is under the shade of plane trees by the side of the River Acheron. A cool and relaxing spot to soak up the atmosphere of the riverside.

After lunch, a quick change into swimwear and into shoes for walking in the river.

The river ramble starts by the springs of the Acheron, the water here is shallow and crystal clear. As you walk upstream you enter the Gliki gorge which narrows with sheer cliffs rising above, the water gets deeper as you proceed and the gorge narrows. After approximately 45 minutes you get to a point where you need to swim. For good swimmers you can try to swim against the current of water forcing its way between the narrow opening whilst others can enjoy the spectacle.

Wading back downstream we make our way back to the taverna to change into dry clothes, have a refreshing drink and return to Parga.
