At the foothills of mount Lykaion lay the springs of a beautiful “female” river called Neda. The river is a natural boundary between Ilia and Messinia. According to Greek mythology Neda was a nymph, a goddess of water and she was one of those who nourished Zeus. The gorge of river Neda is a natural wonder of the Messinian countryside. The constantly varying landscape, the lush, the turquoise waters and the majestic cliffs, make the crossing of this gorge an unforgettable experience.
Our route begins near village of Platania where we gain access to the gorge from the nearby bridge. We get all the necessary equipment and we are ready to do an amazing crossing. We follow the stream which leads us into a totally unspoiled natural environment. We walk through wild vegetation, old plane trees and wild oaks, through narrow rocky passages and impressive ponds discovering a well hidden and genuine natural paradise. Near the village of Neda we discover an enchanting portrait of nature. A creek called ‘’ neraidorema’’ (fairy creek). Crystal waterfalls flowing endlessly create blue ponds then poured into the main river and continue rapidly their course to the sea. At this spot is the end of our journey. We relax in the wake of the gurgling water enjoying traditional delicacies and refreshing swims in the cool waters of the ponds.
