The gorge and the villages are deserted in February which was great for us to discover the area. The best bridges are close to each other. Kokori bridge and the triple-arched bridge are between Koukouli and Kipoi. Even in winter there was no water running under Kokori (called Nossos or something weird and very different on Google maps but the... More

We've been there with my husband as we love nature and we always want to visit the miracles of nature. My husband has a dream, to visit Grand Canyon in USA one day. We live in Greece and I told him about Vikos Gorge in Epirus and that is the deepest (1100 metres) Canyon of the world! He said "Lets... More

My Wife and I hiked Vikos, from the village of Monodendri to the Village of Vikos on Dec 31, 2015. Despite reading that it may be too cold, too snowy, and too dangerous to hike in the winter, our experience was excellent. The weather this winter in Greece was exceptionally mild and dry, so we were lucky. This may not... More

We hiked into the gorge starting from Mikro Papigko. It took us around 1 hr and half to get down to the Voidomatis spring, where we crossed the Aoos river to the other side. The trail is through thick forest with beautiful views of Astraka mountain cliffs on one side, Vikos Village on the other side. It's an easy hike... More

We were there on a rainy day with low clouds. Although visibility was not great, from what we can observe, the gorge is pretty spell binding. We went on a very twisty road on the opposite hill and the view was good.

We visited Greece in November and took a trekking trip from Monodendri village to Vikos Gorge. The trip is amazing and it's definitely one of top places to see in Greece! It takes 5-6 hours to walk from Monodendri to Vikos village. A car seems to be the best way to get to Monodendri. We left it in the village... More

To hike the Vikos Gorge you can start in Monodendri or Vikos. In Ioannina's KTEL bus station get the bus early in the morning or at 135pm Monday, Wednesday or Friday to Monodendri. You must make a transfer at the cross roads so tell your driver where you are going. In Monodendri there are two churches, one in town just... More

We actually drove past the sign for the gorge and ended up in the actual village, a hell of a drive on tiny, winding roads but worth it as there was an amazing view from a platform at the back of the village. We had a drink and a meal at a lovely taverna as well as finding a small... More

The Vikos Gorge is incredible. Words and Photo's don't do it justice. I have hiked all over the world and rate this in my top 3. The part that lets it down is the Greek transport and organisation to allow you to easily get to the hike. I researched a lot before I left but couldn't find much information. Here... More
