Spend time driving to Vikos overlook, pass Stone Forest on way. Visit monastery in Monodendri in morning, walk through stone streets leading between towns. Visit amphitheater and then walk down to bottom of gorge.

A gorge which is considered among the narrowest. A Beautiful landscape which follows the route of the Vikos river . Don’t go during the winter if you want to admire the scenery because most of the days it’s foggy .

Vikos gorge is definitely worth a visit. The surrounding villages and mountain scenery is beautiful. We did the walk into the gorge and found that it was a well marked, fairly well maintained track. There are some areas of loose stones but nothing too difficult....More
