An easy and beautiful descent, ideal for beginners. We will enjoy though with some light waves, repeated turns and 2nd to 3rd degree crossings. The descent starts at the bridge of Politsa in Abelochori and ends in the bridge of Plaka (very recently destroyed by floods of January 2015 and in process of reconstruction). The entrance to the narrow canyon of Arachtos is truly imposing, with highest pitch reaching 700m. We will see many springs coming out of the rocks from chinks, and rare birds nesting in the remote rocks of the canyon. 
 
About the bridge of Plaka: Used to be the largest one-arch bridge of Balkans. Built in 1866, with width of 40meters, and height of 19meters was a real jewel and point of attraction for the area. It was destroyed by the floods of this winter and attempts to find the missing pieces and reconstruct them will begin shortly.
