Canyoning the Selinounta Canyon & Trano Lagadi - Agroville

Canyoning the Selinounta Canyon & Trano Lagadi

Agroville
The ecotourism experience

An atmospheric and delightful canyon for keen hikers and lovers of pure nature! In this canyon the impressive combination of the plane trees and the running water carve out a landscape of unique beauty away from mass tourism. A scenery taken form a fairytale.

At some point, the river’s bed tapers and forms a little pod rich in fish!

After crossing the biggest part of the canyon, other times being inside and others outside the river, we will reach Trano Lagadi, a place where wonderful waterfalls emerge! The biggest waterfall has a length of 60 metres! While marveling at it we will realize that more waterfalls are flowing down from higher spots! This stream has its springs at the Klokos mountain, at the foot of which our lodging is located.

In ancient times, the town of Ancient Eliki was built between Selinounta and Keryniti, one of the most important monuments of the time, whose various parts are still sought today!

*at the beginning of the canyoning we will meet the monastery of Taxiarches which has an heirloom room, relics, rare books and priceless treasures.

* length: 17 km, 5-6 hours of hiking

* remember to take your swimming suits for a dive in the so-called ‘Vathres’
