In the eastern Olympus, west of Dion, there is the beautiful Urlia gorge.
According to the tradition, the river Elikon or Vaphyras or Urlias -named after the noise and the hum of water- is an ancient river of Pieria which was lost by its shame by refusing to purify it when Zeus’s Maenads wanted to rinse them their hands there from their blood of Orpheus after they had killed him in Dion – he was lost from the ground and came back to the surface there just outside Dion, where he forms his waterfalls.
The landscape, taken from the imagination of Tolkien with hidden, majestic and imposing with their humming throughout the area, the Uralia waterfalls rise in an environment of rich vegetation, the crystal clear waters of Uralia canyon.
The path will give us unique pictures of beauty that define the Olympus slides and dives, are the main elements of the canyon as well as the continuous descents!
The unique landscape and gorge of unparalleled beauty will make the most of every participant in this activity.
