Along the way your guide will talk to you about the flora and fauna of the area as only in 2016 Vikos Gorge and its surrounding North Pindos National Park have been nominated by UNESCO as a word heritage location.

Day 3 (continue)

The landscape of the 20 km long gorge is extremely diverse and is characterized by abrupt changes in altitude. The Vikos Gorge has been carved over millions of years by the Voidomatis River, a tributary of the Aoös River. As it splits the mountain in half, its slopes expose rock formations of limestone and dolomite, dating back to 150 million years . Its vertical cliffs rise up to a height of 1700 meters. Along the way you will enjoy lunch next to the river. Upon reaching Vikos village a van will drive us back to the hotel.
