Full description
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.

The 2 of us had a private tour. The gorge is really beautiful and the guide tells a lot about the gorge, but not so that he is constantly talking. Enough stops along the way to drink or take photos and ideally you are brought back to the starting point

we had wonderful time walking in Vikos canyon from Monodendri to Vikos. Our guide was great and we even managed to have interesting conversations. as we were only 2 people we did it in quite a good pace and by the end we were sorry that we did not continue to Papigo We definitely recommend this activity

Beautiful hike!

Didn't realize that I was signing up for a private tour! I enjoyed that the trail had surprisingly few hikers. Amazing views! My guide was knowledgeable and a good hiking companion. He also recommended a great mushroom restaurant in Vitsa. It was the best meal in my entire Greece vacation!
