For those who like nature and its beauty, this area offers many alternatives and sight-seeings. Among others we refer to:

Aherontas River

Axerontas river

Aherontas river, which is closely connected to mythology, is crossing Fanari valley debouching into the Ionian Sea. It is thus responsible for the existence of a number of ecosystems and areas of special interest as far as walking and exploration is concerned.

It crosses the valley defined of the mountains  situated between the district of Ioannina, Preveza and Thesprotia, and passing through historical Souli mountains (known as "Aheronta channels") it comes close to Gliki village where small rivers are created in a natural way. There you can have activities like riding in the river, as well as rafting.

Aherontas river debouches at Ammoudia village. There, a physical "delta" is created as a result from the transportation of natural materials, which extend in this way land into the sea. Aherontas is just 20 minutes away from Loucha-Vrachos beach by car.

 

Nekromanteio

Nekromanteio

The most important and the oldest oracle is the Oracle (Nekromanteio) of Aherontas.

The ancient Oracle of Aherontas is placed near Kanalaki village, at Mesopotamos village. It was situated near the conjunction of the rivers Aherontas, Kokitos and Piriflegethontas, at the north banks of Aherousia lake. This was believed to be the entrance of the souls to nether world. Nekromanteio is constructed at the top of a hill that visitors  reached from Ammoudia village. There were the "gates" of nether world where people could get in touch with the souls of their beloved.

The Nekromanteio is a popular destination of high historical importance and is just 20 minutes away from Azalena Hotel (http://www.azalena.gr
) at Loucha-Vrachos beach by car.
