A Canyoning Trip, with lunch, at the natural wonder of Neda Gorge, perfect for beginners.

The place

Neda Gorge is a hidden gem of the Peloponnese. According to Greek mythology, Neda was a nymph, a goddess of water and she was one of those who nourished Zeus. Beautiful creeks create stunning waterfalls along the gorge course with incredible waters, maybe the cleanest in Greece. Moreover, the lush environment, the crystal-clear waters, and the majestic cliffs make the crossing of this natural waterpark an unforgettable experience. Canyoning Neda trip here is the ideal way to take your first steps and get addicted to the magic world of canyoning. No previous experience is necessary for participating in Neda Canyoning, families with teenage kids are welcome.

The activity

Meet your guide at the starting point. He will welcome you, and brief you all you need to know about how to descend the gorge safely and how to achieve maximum fun out of it. Your guide will also provide you with wetsuits, helmets, and harnesses and you are ready to go. In a few minutes, the game begins with your first slide into one of the ponds of the gorge. After that, there is swimming, walking, water jumping, and a lot of fun as we move further.

Quite often we abseil down the beautiful waterfalls under the directions of our guides. Last but not least rappel will be at the greatest and most notable waterfall of the river. Here, is the only accessible spot by other visitors and where most of them come to swim. Often you hear them applauding at you as they see you rappelling over their heads. We finish the day enjoying a tasty picnic by the riverbank remembering the thrilling moments we lived a few moments ago.

At Explore Messinia, we are committed to promoting sustainable tourism and preserving the natural beauty of our canyons for future generations. Our canyoning adventures exemplify this dedication in several impactful ways. By relying on natural water flows and human physicality rather than powered equipment, we ensure a minimal environmental impact and encourage a genuine connection with nature.

Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in the use of eco-friendly and sustainable gear. We provide harnesses, helmets, made from high-quality, and wetsuits from terraprene which is petroleum free durable material designed to have minimal impact on the environment. Additionally, we encourage participants to bring reusable water bottles to reduce the dependence on single-use plastics. Hydration is vital, but it doesn’t have to compromise the health of our planet. Refillable bottles can be topped up before and during the activity to ensure you have enough water for the journey.

Sustainability in our canyoning tours doesn’t stop at the equipment. Our guides integrate environmental stewardship into every adventure. Participants are encouraged to assist in preserving the canyon’s pristine condition by picking up any plastic or other debris encountered along the way. This small act of collecting litter ensures that we leave the canyons even more beautiful than we found them.

By adhering to these sustainable practices, together we can ensure that the spectacular canyons continue to thrive and that our canyoning experiences remain eco-friendly and enriching for all
