_our excursion

A three-day event in the unique Zagorohoria and the Vikos Gorge! A route – crossing that should be planned by every hiker – nature lover with satisfactory physical condition.

We depart on Friday afternoon for Ano Pedina in Zagorochoria and the amazing Pirrion Boutique Hotel & Ameliko where we will have free time for wine, paroula, food, meeting the team and preparing for the crossing.

On Saturday morning we will take our breakfast and depart for Monodendri, the entrance of the gorge. A magical route of 15km awaits us in the deepest gorge in the world in relation to its width, in the core of the national park Vikos – Aoos! Coming out of the gorge we will have free time in the village of Vikos for lunch before returning to our accommodation. * Those who wish to make a shorter hike there is the option of a circular route starting and ending in Monodendri.
