Exploring the deepest canyon of the world!

Vikos gorge at Zagorochoria is an amazing destination for nature-loving travelers!

The Vikos Gorge in ZagoriIoannina,  with a length of 20 km (12 mi), walls that range from 120 to 490 m (400 to 1,600 feet) deep, and a width that ranges from a few meters at its narrowest part to 400 m (1,312 ft) at it widest, is listed by the Guinness Book of Records as the deepest canyon in the world in proportion to its width. The main part of the gorge stretches from the village of Vikos to Monodendri, and attains a depth of about 1,000 m (3,281 ft).


Our guide Dimitris was recently there, exploring the gorgeous scenery of this amazing canyon: old stone bridges, stunning landsapes, traditional villages... Everything that Zagori area is famous for! He even "met" with a bear on the way back! Check out the photo gallery of this excursion to get an idea!
