Pinios, at a length of approximately 200km, is one of the largest rivers of Greece. Its springs are situated on the slopes of Pindos in the region before Metsovo, and its most important tributaries are Titarisios, that flows through the Elassona basin, and Enipeas, where waters gather from the Farsala region. According to mythology, Peneius was the son of Oceanus and Tethys. In antiquity, he was worshipped as a secondary god in Thessaly. The river traverses the greatest part of the Thessalian plain and is an ideal choice for leisure or sports activities, such as rafting and canoe kayak in Vernezi, with a degree of difficulty of 4.5 – 5, due to the large volume of water and not to the river’s turbulent waters.
