Vikos Gorge Full-Day Guided Hike

1. Vikos Gorge Full-Day Guided Hike

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.

We contacted our guide the previous evening when he explained the program and told us what to bring. We met him in the village where he gave us walking poles and we started off It was an amazing hike covering the stone bridges and took us through woods, downhill, uphill and some river beds. The day was hot but the forest provided cover. Water was available on the way at drinking fountains. Make sure you use sunscreen and protect your arms from scratches and bugs with longer sleeves You will need at least good trainers for the walk not sandals. Our guide was excellent and explained so many things and had interesting anecdotes about the area and it’s history Definitely a must do.

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!

Beautiful hike, but the descent was quite steep with scree in places.

Beautiful hike. However, the descent was quite steep. We were unprepared for the amount of scree or the need to climb over large rocks. Also, much of the trail is in the trees so one does not see the Gorge much of the time.

Nikos was a great guide, and I would recommend him.

Good hike, plenty of great spots for photos. Nikos also knew about other hiking routes and possibilities in the area. I'd do this again.
