Dafnon Gorge is a very scenic canyon carved by the seasonal river Dafnon, located in Arcadia, Peloponnese, Greece.
The road through the gorges is asphalted, with some narrow parts. Watch out for holes in the road. The road does get busier at weekends and in the main holiday season. It is in a fairly bad state with sections crumbling away and a lot of loose gravel on the surface. In the summer the canyon is a dry riverbed of white stones but in the winter and spring is fairly full of water if not a raging river of rapids.
The gorgeous drive is 28.2 km long and links the town of Leonidion and Kosmas, a mountain village deep in the Parnon mountains. Along the way is the Monastery of the Panagia Elona. The scenic mountain road is pretty steep, ascending to a considerable height with 9 hairpin bends.
