Acheron Necromanteion  

 


Acheron Necromanteion - Preveza (Greece)

Acheron (Acherontas) is a large river (52 kilometers (32 miles) long) in the Greek district of Epirus. Acheron flows through the prefectures of Ioannina, Thesprotia and Preveza. The waters of Acheron originate from melted snow, high in the mountains of Ioannina, and from several springs. The river flows into the sea at Ammoudia, on the Ionian coast.

The river is a very popular holiday destination for hikers, nature lovers, culture enthusiasts and active athletes. Canoeing, kayaking and rafting is possible here. The wildlife of the river consists of an abundance of small fish, eels, crabs, frogs, butterflies and some types of harmless water snakes.

A major attraction nearby is the Necromanteion of Acheron (The Oracle of Acheron) which is located near the village of Mesopotamos.
