The activity

Rafting is a group activity of river descent with an inflatable boat. The crew consists of a river guide and from 6 to 10 rowers, depending on the size of the boat which is determined by the degree of difficulty of the river and the amount of water. On spring Sundays we plan day trips from Thessaloniki to the rivers of Venetikos B’ in Grevena and Angitis in Serres.

See below the planned day trips for the spring of 2021:

The excursion takes place with a minimum required number of entries of 15 people and a maximum of 50 people. Upon request there is also the possibility for a date and program of your choice in all the rivers of northern Greece.
