Day Trip: 2 Perdika, Karavostasi, Arilla, Sivota
A beautiful trip with breath taking viewings…You will be amazed by the beauty of the Thesprotian coastline!
Sivota was the first mentioned village in history, 433 years Before Christ, during the Sivota Sea-battles between the Corinthians and the Corfiots. Until 1959 the village was known as Mourtos under the name of pirate who had his base on the small islands of the bay. The earliest recorded inhabitants of the region are the Thesprotians, a Greek tribe of Epirus. In antiquity, the location was the site of the Sea Battles of Sybota. During the Middle Ages, Syvota, was part of the Byzantine Empire and the Despotate of Epirus. Under the Turks, it was called Mourtos. After nearly 500 years of Ottoman rule, Syvota joined Greece in 1913, following the Balkan Wars, and was previously used as an Ottoman naval base during the Greek War of Independence. The coastal village of Syvota (Albanian: Murto or Vola) was home to Cham Albanians before 1944, when they were expelled for collaborating with the Axis Powers. During the short term Italian occupation in Syvota in 1940, the village was burnt by Cham Albanian bands and Italian troops. In Polyneri of Syvota a Muslim Cham community resides (2000) and the last imam in Epirus lived in this village. The mosque was blown up by a Christian villager during the Greek dictatorship.
Today, Syvota town is a well-developed, Mundane resort, owing largely to the numerous pristine beaches with clear waters located on several islets immediately offshore.

Day Trip: 3 Acheron River, Paramythia, Gliki
A very interesting route, what will remain in your memory…
A journey to the mythical river Acheron. Located between the mountain gorges with clear clean water and surrounded by beautiful nature. The powerful magical energy is tangible. During there are many beautiful views to see as you will pass the oasis of swamps around Amoudia. A stop will be made at Necormanteion Museum, Paramythis, Gliki and Amoudia.
The Acheron River in mythology. Acheron was known as the “river of woe”, the “river of pain” or the “river of lost souls” and was one of the five rivers of the Greek underworld. In the Homeric poems the Acheron was described as a river of Hades, into which Cocytus and Phlegethon both flowed. The Roman poet Virgil called the Acheron the most important river of Tartarus, from which both the Styx and the Cocytus emerged. The new dead would be transported by Charon across the Acheron to enter the underworld.
Acheron is said to be among the best known of the five rivers of the underworld, the Styx, Lethe, Archeron, Phlegethon and Cocytus.
Only if a Virgin was sacrificed annually in Gliki would one be absolved and protected from the curse of horror.
Cursed in the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime in shame. But the strongest steel is forged from the fires of hell… Acheron’s human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that nearly destroyed the earth. When he was brought back against his will, he became humanity’s sole defender. The kingdom of Hades features meadows, asphodel flowers, fruit trees, and other geographical features. The surroundings changed into a beautiful lush green environment. With flowers and a rich plant life and with all the healing herbs and mountains of teas that can be found.
In the present, the Acheron River is visited for its Mystical, Mysterious Magical Power. An energy that is tangible and has a healing effect. The Acheron is visited by people who are ill or suffering from negative stress or depression in hope of healing through the power of the Acheron River. Spiritual groups visit the Acheron River for the Mysterious Positive Magical Powers.
The best Fresh and Healthy Herbs are coming from this Acheron aerea of The Epirus.
The Nekromanteion was an ancient Greek temple of necromancy devoted to Hades and Persephone. According to tradition, it was located on the banks of the Acheron river in Epirus, near the ancient city of Ephyra. This site was believed by devotees to be the door to Hades, the realm of the dead. The site is at the meeting point of the Acheron, Pyriphlegethon and Cocytus rivers, believed to flow through and water the kingdom of Hades. The meaning of the names of the rivers has been interpreted to be “joyless”, “burning coals” and “lament”, respectively. The word Necromanteion means “Oracle of the Dead”, and the believers came here to talk to their deceased ancestors. Other ancient temples, as the Temple of Poseidon at Taenaron and Argolis, Cumae and Herakleia at Pontos, are known to have housed oracles of the dead, the Necromanteion of Ephyra being the most important. It belonged to the Thesprotians, the local Greek tribe of Epirot. According to Herodotus’s account, it was to the Necromanteion that Periander, the 6th-century BC tyrant of Corinth, sent legates to ask questions of his late wife, Melissa. In Homer’s Odyssey, the Necromanteion was also described as the entrance through which Odysseus made his katabasis. In ancient times, Acheron was believed to be the river crossed by the “soul-bearer” Hermes, according to ancient Greek mythology, who brought the souls of the dead to Charon to end up in the kingdom of Hades. Each soul that passed through Charon’s ferry had to donate an obol for transportation. The return journey is through the Oasis Swamps area.The Amvrakikos swamp around Amoudia is located between the mouths of the rivers Louros and Arachthos, which is one of the most important areas in Europe and is protected by the Pamsar Convention and has an open connection with the Ionian Sea. Amoudia is a fishing village where the fishermen land their fish straight out of the sea. Amoudia has a beautiful beach and a very cozy harbor with taverns and hangars where delicious fresh fish can be eaten under the hangar, an absolue culinair delight in a special environment.
Trip: 4 Zagori, Meteor Monastirs
Discovery, breath taking viewings, interesting, educational…
Zagori is an area in North-Western Epirus, the Pindus Mountains. The area is approximately 1,000 M2 kilometers with 45 characteristic villages, characterized by their traditional architecture and building style. The villages are very difficult to reach due to the mountainous terrain; this ensured safety. Ancient Greek is still spoken in this area by some ancient residents. The Zagori region is known for its dozens of centuries-old stone arch bridges. A bell hangs on the bridges, which will ring as a warning of unsafe conditions. Of the many gorges in Zagori, the Vikos gorge is the largest. This impressive gorge starts between the villages of Monodendri and Koukouli and ends at the village of Vikos.
The Wonders of the World. The Holy Monastery is the oldest and largest of the monasteries of Meteora. The monastery is built just before the 14th century by a monk from Mount Athos named Saint Athanasios the Meteorite. He started building a church dedicated to the Mother of God, the Virgin Mary. Later he added small cells so that monks could live on top of the rock formations. The second name of the monastery is The Holy Monastir of the Transformation. It is the largest of all monasteries and has a special layout of buildings. The katholikon is dedicated to the transfiguration of Jesus. The hermitage of the first founder of the monastery is a small building in the rocks. The hestia (kitchen) is built in a dome shape. There is a hospital, with the famous roof of the ground floor made of brick and supported by four columns. The three ancient churches are: the Chapel of St. John the Baptist, the Chapel of St. Constantine and Helena, and the Chapel of the Virgin Mary.
Here is what our Customers Think:
Saturday, we did an excursion with Agiainfo: it was an interesting and nice experience, due to our personal guide Vangelius. We visited the Acheron river and several ancient cities as Necromentaia and Amoudia. It was a very personal excursion because Vangelius did ask several times what we would like to do. And he knows a lot about myths and history. We highly recommend this organization and would like to thank Vangelius and Berlinda for this memorable day. Thanks and greetings, Anne-Marie en Hans
Tour Guide Vangelius certainly did a good job!! The last town was a bit less, but that was because everything was closed because many people were killed there 80 years ago. Then he took us to a church which was so special. Very nice man who explained a lot. Thank you Berlinda! I will definitely pass on your name if anyone goes to Parga. Great that you switched so quickly. Have a nice evening 🌺 We had a beautiful day!! Karin, Els, Ria
