Adrianos Gorge
(8 votes)

The gorge of Adrianos starts from the village Adrianos. In some places there are high rocks that impede the free course through the canyon, making walking difficult, but not impossible (the course needs about 3 hours). Near the gorge you can visit the caves Maridon and Atziganospilios.

The river flowing in its bed is part of the river Skoulikaris or Xeropotamos that gathers water from the valley of the village Potami and it empties, after many kilometers, near the stadium of the town Agios Nikolaos.
