For our last day, we have the best part of the area, the Vikos Canyon with a breathtaking view, as a seal for our wonderful mountaineering weekend. Vikos Canyon is one of the most famous sights in Zagori, a monument of nature! It is one of the largest, deeper and most impressive canyons in the world, with vertical geological formations, a wide variety and alternation of different ecosystems and a feast of flora and fauna. It is located at an altitude of 550-1779m. It is about 24 km long and is included in the Guinness book as the narrowest canyon, only 1100 meters at its narrowest point and at the same time a depth of more than 900 meters. It starts from the bridge of Cocoros, ending at the Voidomati bridge. To the charm of the canyon contributes also the side river of Aoos, the river Voidomatis that runs through it. Nature lovers will immediately see some rare species of shrubs and trees, as well as unique endemic plants in the canyon. The main forests here are composed of broadleaved deciduous species of maples, willows, oaks and other trees such as plane trees. We will cross the canyon through a well-marked path, which starts from the village of Monodendri and ends at the village of Vikos. The journey takes about 6 hours and is unparalleled in natural beauty. It is a scenic path with alternating scenery, ups and downs, enjoyable hiking in places overlooking a lush path and other places alongside the riverbed. The day will end in the village of Vikos, where there are good dining options and tsipouro.
Zagori, with its natural diversity, is one of the most beautiful places in Greece and we will experience it all in a special mountaineering weekend, rich in images, experiences and intense feelings that will accompany us on our return back to Athens.
