Revealing one of Greece’s well hidden gems!

Portitsa is a unique location worldwide ’cause you will not find a gorge with an old stone bridge anywhere else in the world!

This is the gorge of Portitsa at Grevena, Greece, with the old stone bridge built right at its entrance. Grevena, a city in North-Western Greece, is not one of the famous Greek touristic 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 unique 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's feet.

The best season to visit this unique scenery is Summer and early Autumn because you can take a walk in the river and get inside the gorge as well, which is really magnificent. Check out our canyoning and hiking activities in Portitsa location and send us a message if you want more info or to book your activity!
