One of the most beautiful, as well as known through the Greek mythology, points of Epirus, is Acheron river. There, we will learn the history of the river, in ancient Greece and the souls that crossed it with the boat of Charon to arrive to the underworld.

We visited the cave during the boat trip and …. Just visited for a few pictures and nothing more! Our boat entered a partly inside for some pictures and that was all – no swimming or landing. Anyhow – I was not disappointed as I was expected exactly this thing and for me was Ok, but I felt another passengers’ disappointment. Cave is accessible only from the sea side by the boat and if you are with small motor boat can land, but with big cruise boats – no way. Personally – I was expected a bigger cave, to have something which is developed as a touristic place, but the only story is which they saying to you from the boat. Just do not expect something more ….

Big beautiful cave. It can be reached only by water (big or small boats). It is a historical landmark as during WWII 1941-1942 a submarine hid in the water in this cave. There are boat tours that take you to this cave. The boat will stay only for few minutes to take some pictures.

We visited this cave by the boat, with no swim inside...the boat go inside only for less than half...the cave is very small and nothing special...it is not worth visiting it...spend your time in other way! If you want to see really good caves, go to Italy!!!

It was part of the daily cruise. The cave was not as big as i have expected. Still it was a nice experience, especially considering the history of the cave (there was a submarine in the cave hiding from the Nazis during wwii). Nothing special, but if you go on a cruise that offers a trip ti the cave i reccomend a swim.

It's a cave, nothing more nothing less but usually seen as part of an all day boat trip so as it's part of the itinerary then O.K. Don't hire a boat especialy to see it.
