To close the season, we have prepared for you an epic and premiere adventure in the Ionian Sea, between Preveza and Igoumenitsa and more specifically in Parga. Set amphitheatrically above the sea, Parga is a unique place combining picturesque mountains and crystal clear waters. There is not a person who has visited the city and has not left part of his heart in it. Its landscapes are reminiscent of an island, the Italian influence can be felt from every corner, and if you look at it from up high you will have the feeling that you are in Monaco. Parga has a rich history. It has been known to the world as a settlement since the 13th century, and there have been constant battles fought over it over the centuries. It was ruled by the Venetian, French, Russian, Turkish and British armies. A native of Parga was the Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire, Suleiman the Magnificent. The medieval fortress overlooking the town, built in the 15th century by the Venetians during their occupation of Parga, is a reminder of past grandeur and battles and is a natural end to the old part of the town, which begins immediately behind the promenade, the sunset from the fortress being magnetic.

---------------------------------------
Day 1:
- Meeting in front of Vasil Levski Stadium at 00:00 and departure from Sofia at 00:30.
- Arrival around 08:00 in Parga.Those who wish can buy fish from the local fish market, then we head to Valtos beach, which is the largest sandy beach in Parga, pitch our tents and after a short break we start with a detailed briefing and formation of the teams.We go on an exploratory kayak trip to the nearby beaches.
On the first day we will make the most of the time to learn and perfect paddling techniques and skills.
- In the evening, we return to the campsite, fire up the BBQ, prepare dinner and enjoy ourselves (those who wish to do so, head out for a walk and dinner at nearby tavernas).
----------------------------------------
Day 2:- After a hearty breakfast and coffee, as well as making sandwiches for the day, we put the kayaks in the water and head to Aphrodite's Cave, one of the area's landmarks. We'll paddle slowly along the coast and enjoy the scenery. We will relax on the sandy beaches and swim in the crystal clear sea waters. One of the breaks will be on a small island with a church, and then we'll accost the kayaks in town. The area is favorable for diving enthusiasts. In the evening, after returning to the campsite and a short rest, we will go for an evening walk and dinner in one of the lovely tavernas of Parga.

----------------------------------------
Day 3:
- This day we will start from Agios Giannakis beach, paddle 5 km to the village of Ammoudia and there we will enter the kayaks at the mouth of the river Acheron. Paddling upstream we will soon enter deeper into the rich ecosystem of the area, passing by riverside forests with unexpected surprises.
We will ascend the river with our kayaks, but we will not reach the underground kingdom because it is still early :), and we will return when the wild foliage of the willows thickens and becomes impassable. 

In Greek mythology, the river Acheron was used by the boatman Charon. Charon carried the souls of the dead on his boat across the River Acheron ("River of Pain") to the underworld if they had an obol (coin) with which to pay him. Anyone buried with a coin under their tongue was taken by Charon, and the rest wandered the shores of Acheron for a hundred years.
Mythology has always been a way of describing things that are not easy to explain or beyond our knowledge and perception, but in our day the River Acheron is still a magical place. No longer because of the stories, but because of the natural beauty of this river. We will enjoy clear turquoise water surrounded by white gorges, waterfalls, lakes and greenery.
The hike is approximately an hour and a half and the downstream is faster.

There is also the option to hike further up the river, east of Glykí, where a trail begins that leads upstream. The eco-trail crosses the river and we have to adjust to its cold waters and continue upstream. The views of the Dragon's Cave, the Acheron Strait, the arched bridge of Dala, the Tsavelena ladder are some of the wonderful landscapes we will see and we will understand why the ancients chose this river as the entrance of souls into the realm of Hades.
