The Acheron River is located in southern Epirus and flows through the town of Glyki. In Greek mythology, he was the "River of the Dead" and the entrance to the underworld - rich in Hades.
In addition to this historical significance, the Acheron is a unique natural beauty. The crystal-clear water, which shimmers light blue and green, has drinking water quality.
