Vikos gorge highlights :Birth of a river – Vikos Gorge. Crosses the heart of Vikos -Aoos National park and the Voidomatis springs, where a river is born!
This moderate difficulty hike, crosses the heart of Vikos -Aoos National park, continues partly through the Vikos gorge where the hiker can dive into the crystal waters of the Voidomatis springs, where a river is born! The path finishes at the Vikos village as the way up brings astonishing views!
Visiting the ancient monastery (built in 1738) next to the springs is really worth an extra 10 minute walk.
