We did day walks in this area with a guide for 5 days. Vikos Gorge was incredible. The water crystal clear and cold, the scenery changed as expected. Views from the top put the gorge into proportion, at the bottom the walls went on forever. A long day walk and a steep climb out but worth it. Many options though... More

Average 5-6 hours hicking if you choose monidentri-vikos as there is a longer option of monodentri-papigko wich is 2 hours extra. It is generaly ok with a medium dificulty level; thus with a few points of ascending and also few points could be described as dangerous. Childer can go thus very very cearfully. The peak of out hicking in the... More

I spent 16 days in the Zagori region in June 2016, going on hikes on most days. I couldn't find proper information in English about all of them, so I will share what I learned here. First of all, get the 1:50.000 map of the area. You can buy it when you get there, some shops will have it. The... More

The area of the Vikos gorge is utterly spectacular. We were based in Konitsa but went to Oxiia for superb views of the gorge. We also went to Papigo and the rock formations here are tremendous. We intend to go back bringing proper footwear to walk the gorge

Such a beautiful unspoilt region it's well well worth a visit. Lovely if you can stay overnight here in one of the beautiful old stone hotels in Zagoria area. There are many beautiful bridges to visit and enjoy walking in the area including in the gorge. Definitely recommend visiting the viewing points at Agia Paraskevi monastery and also at Oxia... More

This is a place of stunning natural beauty, from the Vikos Gorge, which you can view from above from "Monodendri" village ("Oxia" at the top) to the gorgeous stone-forrest (rock formations) nearby and old stone bridges around the village "Kipi". The whole experience was breathtaking. We mostly drove around, so would love to enjoy the whole thing trekking the paths... More

A beautiful 6 hour trek from Monodendri to Vikos village throu the gorge. An easy descent from Mondendri, followed by an easy flat trail surrounded with sounds of birds,wind and water. A must do for those who love trekking!

You can either walk to the gorge and walk down the steps to the bottom ( 40 mins down and one hour up)The path is rocky and steep but its a good way of getting off a few kilos.Or you can walk left of the Bridge of Kokkori on the 2hr walk and see it that way.

I was lucky enough to visit this gorge last November. The sun was out, it was a beautiful day and I had the gorge to myself! I had such peaceful thoughts as I hiked through this stunning gorge. The terrain changed every so often with dry riverbeds, lush moss-covered copses, steep mountain pathways, dew-covered fields and more. The range of... More
