Trekking Hellas Mt. Olympus

DETAILS

Canyoning is a sport that mixes adrenaline and natural beauty in equal measure. Trekking through gorges, waterfalls and giant rock pools, canyoning allows you to indulge deep in nature and experience it in a brand new way. We turn this experience into a fun adventure by rappelling through the waterfalls while diving and sliding within the ponds we find along the way. Orlias Canyon is located in the eastern part of Mt. Olympus, above Dion village.

In a magical setting with wild vegetation and steep slopes, crystal clear waters are running from the canyon. A beautiful green path towards Koromilia is leading to the entrance of the canyon. Orlias offers an exciting activity with slides, jumps and 10 abseils up to 27m high. Orlias Canyon is without a doubt, an excellent and fun destination for canyoning in Greece.
