SAVVAS PARAGKAMIAN (GREECE)

I have been fortunate to have started from very young age to explore caves and learn about cave life with my father. Since 2012, I have been a certified instructor (moniteur) in canyoning by the French Federation of Speleology. I have instructed more than 25 seminars for both speleology and canyoning for over 150 participants. My favorite activity is exploring new places which has led me to organize and join several expeditions to canyons and caves.
