A two-day trip in the unique Zagorochoria and the Vikos Gorge! A route – crossing that should be planned by every hiker – nature lover with satisfactory physical condition.
On Saturday around 12:00 we arrive in Zagorochoria and we will head to Oxya, a spot with a breathtaking view! After a short hike and after passing the monastery of Agia Paraskevi we will reach Ano Pedina and our amazing hotels Pirrion Boutique Hotel & Ameliko where we will have free time to rest, eat, socialize and prepare for the crossing of the next day!
On Sunday we will have an early breakfast, check out and depart for Monodendri and the entrance of the gorge.
The Vikos Gorge is one of the most famous in Greece and the deepest gorge, in terms of length-width-height, worldwide. It forms the core of the Vikos-Aoos National Forest, in the area of which a wide variety of rare species of flora and fauna find refuge. It is about 11 kilometers long and in many places the depth exceeds 1,000 meters. The route lasts 5-6 hours, on a strongly downhill path for the first hour and strongly uphill for the last hour, and ends in the village of Vikos. There we will have free time for our lunch before we start for the return.
