The Neilias Gorge

A beloved meeting point for nature enthusiasts, the legendary Neilias Gorge/Bolovinaina offers a unique and captivating landscape for hiking, canoeing, or canyoning. This relatively compact yet striking gorge is skillfully concealed within the thick forests of northern Evia, spanning 1,400m and boasting a breathtaking entrance.
