Full description
This tour offers the ultimate view of the world’s steepest canyon, Vikos Gorge. In this tour you will see one of the clearest and coldest rivers of Europe, Voidomatis and will discover some spots with a sublime view of the canyon. The silvery waters of the river, though cold, are ideal for a swim in the summer months.

The first stop will be at the village Aristi where you may enjoy a Greek coffee or juice. The second spot will be near the river Voidomatis, in order to explore the place and swim (during summer) in its clear water. The third stop at the Kolimpithres of Papingo, a beautiful place where natural pools are formed by the river. The fourth stop at the village Papingo for a walk in the narrow streets and for tasting local dishes of Zagori. The fifth stop will be at the village Vikos, one of the most beautiful places that offers a breathtaking view of the canyon.

The final stop will take place in the village Monodendri, where the group will visit the monastery of Saint Paraskevi, which was built on the edge of a cliff. There you will see the highest point of Vikos canyon, the spot “beech”. Afterward the guide will drive you back to your hotel.
