Aspropotamos in Greek literally means the white river and it is the spring of Acheloos river, a mythical god of the ancient times. Attempting to describe the beauty of this region is next to impossible. Pine and beech trees, scattered traditional villages, old stone bridges, beautiful old churches and the fascinating river of Acheloos could only be some of this incredible region’s main assets.
Try visiting this area all year round. Experiment with rafting, horse-riding, 4 x 4, or simply enjoy hiking in one of Greece’s most beautiful regions. Aspropotamos is 1 hr away from Meteora (50 km) and the route followed is absolutely striking. Just let yourselves indulge in the endless green of nature. If you decide to go for rafting in Aspropotamos the ideal months are from October to May. During the summer time, the river becomes very shallow not allowing rafting activities.
