The name of Aliakmonas comes from the mixing of two words, als (salt, sea) and the name akmon (anvil). According to Greek Mythology Aliakmon was one of the river gods, son of the Ocean and Tethys. This river route is suitable for rafting (going down the river on inflatable boats of special type) throughout the year.The longest in length river of Greece (322 km) is ready to host us for a few (6 km) of its hundreds of kilometers.
During this route we will be astonished by the Meteora’s rocks, since geologically the area is similar to the one of Meteora (Rocks composed of psammite, sandstone). The big variety of birds (herons, cormorants, black storks, wild ducks, falcons, eagles etc.) and also mammals (bears, deer, wild pigs etc.) that live in this wild yet beautiful at the same time area will make our trip somewhat different from the usual.
Spring and winter there is lots of water and impressive waves. Summer and fall there is less and warmer water (even sometimes under the moon light) – Aliakmonas ruote is something you should enjoy all seasons.
