Hiking in Vikos Gorge is one of the most famous activities for the visitors of Zagori. A “must-do” activity for your bucket list!
Crossing of Vikos Gorge, in Zagori, is a fascinating hike in one of the most stunning gorges of Europe. The Vikos Gorge is part of the 12,600 hectares Vikos-Aoos National Park and has been listed in the Guinness book of records as the deepest canyon worldwide in proportion to its width. It is a spectacular sight! The landscape of the 20 km long gorge is exceptionally diverse and is characterized by abrupt changes in altitude. The Vikos Gorge has been carved over millions of years by the Voidomatis River, a tributary of the Aoos River. As it splits the mountain in half, its slopes expose limestone and dolomite rock formations, dating back to 150 million years. Its vertical cliffs rise to a height of 1700 meters.
