Caving

Exploring caves in Greece is a unique adventure that offers explorers the opportunity to acquire and to enrich their knowledge with the essentials of geology, paleontology, anthropology, hydrology, topography, physics, biology and archeology. Greek caves are among the most beautiful in the world. Visitors are enthralled with the splendors of the geological formations, the subterranean waters, the colors that are out of this world and the sounds of the earth.

Many Greek caves have been explored and quite a few of these have been exploited and are now open to the public. There are still many caves that have not been fully explored, nor exploited. Tours of these caves are carried out but only under certain conditions, and of course with the necessary license.

In addition, the aspiring explorer of a non-exploited cave must realize that sightseeing in a cave is not an endeavor for just anyone, as special knowledge and nimbleness are required, as well as being in good physical condition. Special tools, clothing, gloves and light sources are needed, while at least three people must be in the group that enters the cave. Aspiring explorers must also be aware that caves constitute unique treasures of the land, as well as man’s civilization in quite a few instances. Therefore all visitors must respect the environment and not leave behind any litter or other traces of their presence.

Greek legislation does not permit private individuals to explore caves, unless they are members of a speleological society and have received permission from the Ephorate of Paleontology and Speleology of the Ministry of Culture.
