    Tour Description

    Vikos gorge is one of the most popular hiking destinations in Greece. The gorge consists of limestone and dolomite formations dating back to 150 million years ago and vertical walls extending up to a height of 1700meters.

    The gorge, carved over millions of years by the Voidomatis River- a tributary of the Aoos, is part of the 12,600 hectare Vikos-Aoos National Park and has been listed in the Guinness book of records as the deepest canyon worldwide in proportion to its width. The trail is ascending and descending, surrounded by steep mountain tops and dense forests, which consist mostly of deciduous trees, with about 1700 plant species and subspecies. The so-called Vikos herbal practitioners used the gorge’s herbs to heal all sorts of aliments and were famous throughout Greece for that. 

    The Vikos Gorge crossing, in the amazing Zagori area, is a fascinating and breathtaking trek in one of the most beautiful gorges of Europe. The crossing lasts between 5-7 hours along the riverbanks. We start at the village of Monodendri and after approximately 45 minutes enter the gorge. It will take us around 4 hours until we reach the springs of Voidomatis and another good hour’s walk until we reach the village of Vikos.
