Acheron the river of Hades in Greece




Acheron river in Greece

The Acheron is a river in north-west of Greece in the Epirus region.

In
Greek mythology, Acheron was one of the five rivers of the underworld. Charon, the ferryman of Hades had ferried the souls of the dead across the Acheron to hell.

Near the village of Glyki, crystal clear and ice-cold water bubbles out of the soil and rocks of both sides of the narrow canyon. This area is called
Springs of Acheron
the acheron river  - a great place on a hot Greek summer day

Our dog was not concerned about the souls of the dead and enjoyed the surprising coolness in the heat of late Greek summer. It's very refreshing to walk through the river at this point; however,
waterproof shoes are recommended.
