Pyrgos House – Kythira Greece

Canyoning Kakia Lagada

For adventurous nature lovers, we organize a unique canyoning tour through Kakia Lagada – the Evil Gorge. In springtime and after the first rainfall in autumn, small lakes form and, during the summer, the gorge is without water, but still challenging. The canyoning tour makes your holiday on Kythira complete.

Experienced guide Nikos knows the stunning gorge by heart and will guide you through it in a small group from Paleochora. With a combination of walking to climbing and abseiling (maximum 10 meters) you follow the gorge which ends at the sea at Limni, on the east coast.

Before you start the descent into the gorge, Nikos gives you a short and clear briefing about the tour and the equipment and, once down in the gorge, he will provide further detailed instructions.

The tour represents a medium degree of difficulty and is a challenge for every sports loving and courageous nature lover, even without canyoning experience.
