Full description
Meet in the center of Kipoi village and set off on the hiking trail with your guide. Discover a vast network of ancient footpaths of the Zagori region, which were built to connect its 46 villages in previous centuries. Cross several impressive stone bridges of the area, built in the 17th-18th century and which are usually known by the name of the benefactor who paid for their construction. Arrive at the picturesque village of Koukouli. Visit a small museum with a selection of specimens of rare flora from the Vikos gorge. Discover rare plant collections that grow on the canyon’s rocks and learn about the ‘Doctors of Vikos’.

We contacted our guide the previous evening when he explained the program and told us what to bring. We met him in the village where he gave us walking poles and we started off It was an amazing hike covering the stone bridges and took us through woods, downhill, uphill and some river beds. The day was hot but the forest provided cover. Water was available on the way at drinking fountains. Make sure you use sunscreen and protect your arms from scratches and bugs with longer sleeves You will need at least good trainers for the walk not sandals. Our guide was excellent and explained so many things and had interesting anecdotes about the area and it’s history Definitely a must do.
