Nestos Gorge Kayak Trip
River kayaking from Stavroupoli to Galani
In the Nestos Gorge Kayak Trip, you will explore one of the last Wildlife refuges that still preserves a rich variety of flora and fauna; it is thus fairly declared an “Aesthetic Forest” and considered among the most important habitats in Europe. This area is a Wildlife refuge and has been included among “Important Bird Areas” and the EU’s “Special Protected Areas”. The grandeur of the landscape is the reason why this region was declared an Aesthetic Forest in 1977.
The ideal way to explore this paradise is by kayak. This river activity is suitable for all ages and evokes a certain awe only the famous Meanders of Nestos can. Our trip flows through the scenic gorge of Nestos River where the surrounding forest is brimming with wildlife, watching your every move as you float down the river. It is a low level of difficulty activity, ideal for families, for nature lovers, for bird watchers, for anyone who wants to relax in a spectacular environment. During the trip we use the train for our transfers firstly because the railroad has a great history and was built riverside through the gorge making it a beautiful ride and second, it is the fastest way between the villages.
