“Fabulous gorge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

We went water rafting , very safe and fun. We travelled on our own but found this easily passing through the wonderful town with the Cranes nests. Fabulous although cold walk through the gorge.

“refreshing change !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Really beautiful scenery surrounds a couple of reasonably priced bars and toilets alongside adequate car parks. Kayaking and Horserides, organic produce stalls ,
Honey, fruit etc.
First thing you notice of this fairly lazy river, is its amazing aqua blue/green colour , it is also beautifully sweet spring water not far from its source , very refreshing swim in the greek sunshine not to be missed.
Couple of tips - leave your valuables locked in your car/coach.
Wear swimming shoes (sharp stones). Stick together especially if you have kids -
- This is quite a strenuous walk through at times quite deep strong flowing cold water if you are not a strong swimmer or smaller child then parts of the upstream trek/swim may prove difficult , so once you get chest high you may want to consider turning back .

“Day Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Must see! Very cold water (12 degrees C), but you eventually get used to it. So much flora and fauna to see in what can only be described as a little piece of paradise.
