In Greece there are many exceptionally beautiful gorges scattered throughout various parts of the country, both on the mainland as well as on the islands. The limestones in the mountains helped to create them from rainwater and from snow that had melted. Rare wildflowers sprouted from the inaccessible walls of the gorges, while many birds found safe places to build their nests.
Whether it is small or large, it is still admired by the sightseer who can cross it through a combination of hiking, climbing, descending rocks, crossing rivers and swimming or even diving into the water from above when he encounters a waterfall. Canyoning is an exciting sport that is continuously winning over more and more fanatics.
