Arahthos Ravine:
Vertical rocks (700-800 metres high), sometimes bare, sometimes wooded, narrow passes (six metres width), Arahthos river which flows, hurriedly, with chrystal clear water, imposing birds, hurried and charming, lazy otters and defiant trout, waterfalls, small beaches. A 20 kilometre trip. A wonder of nature between two human wonders: Politsa bridge and Plaka bridge. People who like the night travel through the ravine by boat at full moon.
