Through outdoor activities that satisfy all tastes, you will discover that Zagori is also an alternative holiday destination, where by observing nature you will refresh your fitness and your spirit.
One of the main activities in Zagori is hiking, organized (trekking) or not, such as the crossing of Vikos Gorge (the deepest canyon in the world according to the Guinness book) with a duration of 5 hours, the crossing of the gorge of Voidomatis alongside the river and swimming in the gorge of "Vikaki" (Little Vikos) or climbing to Drakolimni (Dragon Lake). We offer guided hiking services as well as self-organized ones.
On self-organized tours, in addition to offering information and maps regarding the routes, we can also provide you with a GPS. You can choose the path that you like, taking into account your mood, your fitness level, weather conditions and our guidance.
Although a self-organized nature hike can be a very pleasant experience, a guided one can be particularly enjoyable because along the way the hiker gets to know more about the natural and cultural characteristics of the region. This can be achieved by using our guides and by selecting routes which offer all the elements that will allow the guest to get acquainted with the nature around them and will give them a taste of the cultural heritage of the area. Some of the particular areas of interest offered are geology, environment, archaeology, architecture, flora and fauna, etc. With appropriate expert guidance, visitors become aware of the local history and the human impact on the land. These tours offer a fantastic way for visitors to not only enjoy but also to gain insight and knowledge of the region.
