Description - What to expect

Enjoy a day of hiking Vikos Gorge, one of the most impressive natural wonders in the world, in the Pindus Mountain Range in Greece, and experience untouched and untamed nature.

Your Vikos Gorge hiking starts from the village of Monodendri on the southern rim of the gorge, a picturesque stone village of walled courtyards and fortress-like gates. Follow a signposted path near the open-air theater at the top of the trail, and from there, the way drops steeply to the Voidomatis River. Walk the course of the river through the shade, admiring the impressive walls of the gorge.

After about 4 hours of hiking, reach the Voidomatis River springs, where a refreshing dive is an option for the brave. Continue your Vikos Gorge hiking through the woods for a while, walking uphill to the exit of the gorge at Vikos village. The tour covers a distance of about 13 kilometers in one of the most impressive routes in the world. Upon arrival at Vikos village, you will be picked up for a transfer back to Monodendri.
