This 4-day tour takes place in the Vikos-Aoos National Park. It is an area of protected natural wealth, north of the city of Ioannina, in the region of Epirus. It was officially declared a national park in 1973 and is bordered northeast with the Pindus-Valia Calda National Park. The region is part of the European network of protected areas Natura 2000.
The National Park also includes the Tymfi mountain range, the Aoos River gorge and a number of traditional villages. The core of the National Park is the gorge of Vikos, the deepest gorge in the world, according to the Guinness Book.

Finally, walking along a beautiful path, we will end up in the village of Konitsa where Via Ferrata begins.

Key highlights of this journey:

Itinerary

4 Day Dragon Lake - Vikos Gorge tour

Day 1

We depart Athens early in the morning, since we will have long journey (approx. 6 hours driving) in order to reach Papigko village, located in Zagori area. Today we will be walking uphill and our first stop will be the Astracas shelter at 1930m. During the first part of our journey, we will be passing through forest areas. Soon enough, the landscape will change as we will be entering the alpine zone of Mt. Tymphe. When we will arrive at the refuge house, we will get settled, and have a rest. We can spend the rest of the day relaxing or have some short walks near the refuge. At the end of the day we will enjoy a dinner and discuss about the next days program.

Estimated Walking Time: 3 - 4 hours

Day 2

After breakfast, we will start our 1½ hike in order to reach the magnificent Dragon Lake, situated at 2100m altitude. The view up there is one of the most stunning views that someone can enjoy from the impressive Greek mountain peaks. Afterwards, we will return back to the refuge house, have a rest and then get ready to descend the mountain from the same path we hiked from Papigko village. Today we will end up at Elafotopos, a picturesque stone village of Zagori, where a very friendly young couple have a small farm. The farm, and their cozy guesthouse, are classic examples of traditional Zagorian architecture, built in 1873. The food offered is absolutely amazing. All products are organic and come from the farm such as the homemade yogurt, the homemade bread, meat, cheese, jam and butter. We will spend the rest of the day there.

Estimated Walking Time: 6 hours

Day 3

Today's day is quite interesting as we will cross the imposing gorge of Vikos, located in the heart of the National Park of Vikos-Aoos. Vikos is one of the few wildlife shelters in Europe, full of flora and fauna. We will hike for about 5 hours (a distance of 12 km), in order to reach the traditional village of Vikos, perched on top of the canyon where will enjoy breathtaking views. Our final destination for today is a cosy guesthouse located in the woods and next to the river where we will raft the day after. There is also the option of the tree houses, very comfortable with their own wc. Time to relax and enjoy the nature of the place or have a walk across the river. For those who still have energy there is an optional activity of zip line (not included).

What better way to end the day than a BBQ in the woods?

Estimated Walking Time:: 5 hours

Day 4

After breakfast at the guesthouse, it is time to explore Aoos river! Today you will participate in a relaxing rafting trip in the crystal clear waters of the Aoos river, in the heart of the National Park of Vikos. Enjoy the stunning nature of the area while paddling through turquoise crystal waters. The rafting is easy, so it's definitely an experience that should not to be missed by anyone. After the rafting activity, we will start our journey back to Athens, and our adventure together ends here.
