The gorge is a sight to see. Luckily you can reach the top by car and see the awesome view from above, visited in febuary when the area still had snow on the ground which made it more picturesque.

We hiked from Kapesoro to Vradeto and then to the view point at Beloi. The hike was strenuous but certainly worth the three hour out and back. It starts with a gentle downhill, then you cross over two stone bridges, and now the ascent begins....More

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.

There is a great viewpoint at Vikos a very short walk from the church where you can park your bikes, and a couple of restaurants nearby. You are looking down into the deepest part of the gorge and the views will not... More
