Awe-inspiring hike through the second largest gorge in the world, starting and ending at 2 of the many lovely, quaint Zagori villages. Quite different from your usual ascent based hikes, as you start by descending into the gorge and literally hiking through it. Varied terrain (rock, grass, river bank and snow) makes for an interesting experience.
