Let us introduce you to Portitsa, one of the hidden gems of Greece!

Greek Adventure offers two great tours in Portitsa, hiking from Spilaio village to the old bridge and canyoning inside the gorge.

This is the gorge of Portitsa in Grevena region of Greece, with the old stone bridge built at its entrance. Grevena, a city in North-Western Greece, is not one of the famous Greek destinations because it has no direct access to the sea, but it is considered to be Greece’s “Highlands” because of its gorgeous nature and the astonishing landscapes.

Portitsa is a unique location worldwide ’cause you will not find a gorge with an old stone bridge anywhere else in the world! The bridge was built around 1743 and it is actually significantly higher that you see on the photos. Materials brought by the river over the years have buried more than 8ft (2.5m) of the bridge.

The best season to visit this unique scenery is late Spring, Summer and early Autumn because you can take a walk in the river and get inside the gorge as well, which is really magnificent. Tip: if you like mushrooms, you MUST try the local mushroom cuisine… Grevena’s mushrooms are among the best ones in the world!

Greek Adventure offers two great tours in Portitsa, hiking from Spilaio village to the old bridge and canyoning inside the gorge. And note: you can combine this excursion with a visit to another gorgeous Greek destination, the magnificent Meteora, which is less than an hour drive from Grevena!

And as always, we can arrange all touristic services for you, from transports to accommodation so that your only "worry" will be having a great time while visiting Portitsa!
