a wonderful hike! my suggestion for hikers that do it for the first time is to use the zonaria - chondromesorachi - agapitos refuge path for the descent...

Great trail with spectacular views. Perfect marking, almost impossible to get lost. Physically challenging, took about 10 hours there and back.

wonderful, juste wonderful.... bring a lot of water and your snorkeling stuff for some nice swimming spots along the way

Great hike. Starts with a long decent from Monodendri to the gorge, continues between the trees along the dry river, arrives to Volos Spring (wonderful) and climbs up to Vikos.

great views, frentic winds, a steep uphill for the most part.

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.
