We leave early in the morning for a half hour drive to the base of Mt Olympus. Once there, we start with a 50-minute hike to the entrance of the canyon through forest paths beside the river where we have a briefing on safety and the use of our equipment. You don’t need to have any prior climbing experience to take part. We are then ready for the descent of the canyon which lasts about 4-5 hours.
The canyon offers a wide range of high waterfalls, long waterslides and big jumps. Lots of water and a closed environment deep in the mountain make it a challenging descent. The route requires a high level of fitness and prior experience in canyoning or rock climbing.
We start with short canyoning trekking until we reach our training spot. Guides will teach you essential skills as abseil, movement, jumps, and slides.
Once you’ve tried out these new techniques, you’ll get into a 3-hour descent into the canyon, admiring natural pools and other impressive views on the way. We start with the waterfall for abseiling and the long natural waterslide for jumps and slides. Our way down the canyon just started! More jumps and through the snake’s hall a baby slide awaits! Some canyoning trekking and a small drop before our final adventurous exit with a big splash.
