Hike the stunning Vikos Gorge of the Pindus Mountains in northern Greece and experience the exceptional beauty of the world’s deepest gorge on an 8-hour tour along footpaths that link traditional stone villages tucked into the folds of the mountains.
What to Expect
Experience the varied terrain and vistas of the Vikos Gorge in the Pindus Mountains and see untouched and untamed nature.
Vikos Gorge is listed as the deepest gorge in the world by the Guinness Book of Records, and is famous for its unique natural beauty and crystal-clear waters. The full-day hike starts from the village of Monodendri on the southern rim of the gorge. It's a restored stone village of walled courtyards with fortress-like gates.
Follow a signposted path near the open-air theater at the top of the trail, from where the path drops steeply to the Voidomatis River. Walk the course of the river through the shade, with sparkling water as your companion.
After about 4 hours, you will reach the Voidomatis River springs. Continue through the woods for a while, hiking uphill to exit at Vikos village. The tour covers a distance of about 7.5 miles (12.6 kilometers), passing towering rocks and virgin vegetation. Upon arrival at Vikos, a transfer will be waiting to take you back to Monodendri.
