In the mountains of Souli, at an altitude of 1.600 meters, only 2 km away from the village of Gliki, you will encounter the springs of Acheron. Creating sceneries of perfect peace and unique natural beauty on the way, the mythical river continues undaunted its perpetual journey towards the sea and flows into the Ionian Sea, in the area of Ammoudia.
Acheron begins from Gliki, where the nature and the carefreeness rule the world of the living; its vivid crystal water (very fast-flowing in winter, but absolutely accessible in summer) goes through gorges, creates ponds, and shelters a complex ecosystem which is protected by Natura 2000.
Centenarian plane trees cast a shadow over it; enormous sheer rocks stand guarding its way. Thousands of birds praise its beauty banishing the “mythical sorrow” in the name of the joy of life!
