Lousios Gorge | Arcadia Highlands | Tracing Monasteries
Updated: Jun 24
Lousios is a gorge and also a rapid flowing river in western Arcadia, Peloponnese. The river begins near Lefkochori and flows through the gorge, which is very popular among hikers, emptying into Alfios river. It is deep and narrow, with 15 Km length (around 2 Km wide), much heavily forested with steep cliffs. Lousios Gorge Hiking is unique.
Two towns can be found at the ends of Lousios Gorge Greece. Dimitsana at the north end and the ancient city of Gortys at the south end (there you can visit the temple of Asclepius).
Lousios river is a 2nd degree of difficulty rafting descent. You can book a rafting tour here.
