In rafting there are various difficulty levels on a scale from one to six. The degree of difficulty of a route, depends on the morphology of the river, the number of passes and their access difficulty.

At his exit gorge there is the famous bridge of Plaka which is the largest single-arched bridge of the Balkans and the 3rd in Europe. Built in 1860 from stone to connect the prefecture of Ioannina and the prefecture of Arta. Arachthos as a river is of 3rd degree of difficulty and is suitable for beginners crews.
