The gorges are deep cuts into the earth carved out of water, streams and torrents, creating waterfalls and ponds. Crossing these canyons is an activity that requires climbing equipment, as well as special water and cold protective suits (neoprene).
‘Cross eagle’ canyon

Total route: 20 km
In Syrrako, a beautiful village of Pindos with traditional architecture and rich history lays the canyon of Stavraetos. The name comes from the homonymous bird, which is constantly found in the skies of Lakmos and Tzoumerka.
The starting point of the canyoning activity is at the entrance of the village and meets its end at the river Chrousia. Eleven striking waterfalls having great morphological and geological alternations, with the smallest being at 5 metres and the largest at 47 metres (!!!!), will definitely catch you eye… It is a demanding canyon for the experienced, but for anyone who want to test their limits as well, because after the Canyoning we need to walk the river up to our cars.
But the incredible landscape, as it is generally accepted, compensates for our effort.
Note: The route can be easier, if we choose to bypass the large waterfall and use the escape road, while still keeping the magic of this landscape.
