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 tour through the gorge was very impressive and Nikos was a great guide. We needed a total of 6 hours including several small breaks. The hike initially goes downhill into the gorge, then through the gorge (flat parts and partly slight hills) and finally out of the gorge via a stepped path. Niko's wife picked us up punctually upon arrival and drove us back to Monodendri. Most of the hike was shaded and on the climb up at the end we were lucky that it was a bit overcast so it wasn't too hot. Nikos shared a lot of knowledge about the environment, plants and animals with us and was always careful that we crossed the paths safely. Highly Recommended!

An amazing adventure passing through very wild and unspoiled nature.A truly unique experience.Be prepared for considerable physical effort.We are very glad to have Vasilis as a guide.He is very knowledgeable of the Vikos gorge and helps to indicate the path and the nature as we go..He works with Nikos who picked us up at Vikos village for the ride back to Mondendri.This is not an easy one so if you are not a pro i suggest a guide.We we’re also lucky with the weather,although on the last part it was a bit hot.Strongly suggest.

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
