Easily reached from Monodenri about 40 minutes drive from Ioannina. Car costs 25 euros a day rental. A room in Monodenri will cost about 35-40 euros. steep heading down and can be slippery in wettish or morning conditions. the walk is easy enough but not in flip flops. there are wonderful views as well as the odd fresh water spring....

There are many reviews of hiking the main Vikos Gorge. We did a shorter hike, about 5 km round trip. The hike begins a few hundred yards past the very obvious one lane arched bridge past Aristos on the way to Papigo. Park in a pull out with a gate on the left side of the road. A good trail... More

If you leave from Papkigo, which is where we were staying, you can walk to the start of the path and in a few hours you will be in the little town of Vikos. It's true that this way you are not hiking the entire length of the gorge, but you are hiking down the gorge and back up again,... More

Europe or the world's deepest gorge, depending on who you believe, can be walked from Monodendri to Vikos along good way marked paths. Some are vertiginous, but we managed it as couple of fit 60 year olds. An unforgettable experience. Wear good boots and take food and water. It's a 6 hour hike, and you need to agree a taxi... More

Having taken our time admiring beautiful Zagori’s stone bridges we made for the traditional stone village of Monodhendhri. We missed a recommended stop at the monastery with a view over the gorge but somehow found ourselves at the Oxia lookout. What a fabulous vista over limestone cliffs and lush countryside far below from this bird’s nest size vantage point! You... More

Starting from Monodendri village it's a great trekking lasting about 6 hours till Vikos village. However, if you still have energy, you can continue riverside trekking until Aristi bridge. It's worth every minute...

We did the trail between Monodendri and Vikos during April. It takes about 6 hours of good walking and the view is great - the greenest place of earth in my opinion. relaxing as heaven

It is really a shame that we came during the winter , Vikos gorge is a location that one must visit during summer and have the ability to walk through it.

The view of Vikos Gorge at Monodendri from Agia Paraskevi Monastery and from location Oxia is breathtaking. From both locations you can understand that Vikos Gorge is a masterpiece of God.
