One of the best hikes i have ever done. The nature, the gorge, the sound,... just amazing. I can recommend the 17km hike. Ok, the last kilometer uphill is tough - but the landscape is fantastic. hike it!

Hiked for three days around this gorge. The walk to the church and the river from Vicki's village was the highlight. The vantage point from beloi lookout is also exceptional.

We walked here 3 days after the rain - and it was slippery going downhill (and you will have lots of downhill, as the path goes up-down-up-down on the first half once you're in the gorge). The views are amazing.

We did this as an organised trip from nearby Parga, so glad we did, what a stunning place. Visited a couple of villages in the region, which to be honest looked like nothing I have ever seen in Greece before, utterly gorgeous. Walked to a...More

Liv Hi We are traveling with 2 kids and are pretty fit for hiking. still cant seem to find how many KM from Monodendri to Vikos? Are we better off going the other way from Vikos to monodendri? or if it is too long can we just hike Vikos to the springs and back or Vikos to the springs and then to mikro Papano?

I visited Vikos gorge last October but didn't get down into the gorge just saw from viewpoints .Im going back this August 2016 with my grandson to walk along the Gorge from Monodendri , I'm not too sure where the walk will lead me as we go through the gorge but would like to know if the route out to small villages is signposted well and what would be the best place to exit the gorge to get a lift back to Monodenri ?Any tips will be most welcome -:) Thanks Andrew
