On Foot Holidays - Greece/Vikos Overview

A self guided hike based in the Vikos Gorge, in the beautiful Zagoria region of Greece.

Stone villages and dramatic mountains

This remarkable route explores the mountainous Zagoria region, famed for its traditional stone villages and the "deepest gorge in the world".

From Ioannina you are transferred by our genial and informative drivers, and arrive at Zagoria after a couple of hours drive. These mountain villages of Epirus are fiercely protective of their way of life and heritage, which you can sample in friendly accommodation in the On Foot Holidays style. The walking is second-to-none in this region, and bearing in mind the drama of the scenery, surprisingly doable. The Vikos Gorge is a must for walkers of all persuasions, while the walk to the Astraka refuge takes you high into the Alpine zone.

Walked by On Foot staff: Simon and Mary

NB: this walk no longer includes a stay in Corfu as standard, but for some extra rest and relaxation we can arrange a couple of nights in Corfu. The old town's Venetian heritage is clear in its narrow alleyways and fortifications, and the island makes a pleasant add-on to the holiday.
