On our River Trekking the Vikaki Gorge we hike and swim in a gorge made of limestone rocks and beautiful water pools within the Vikos – ‎Aoos National Park, listed as a world heritage monument of UNESCO.‎

The Vikaki Gorge begins in the village of Tsepelovo and ends at the village of Kipi covering a total distance of approximately 4 kilometers. Here it ‎meets the Bagiotiko stream and by merging together they form Vikos stream. This gorge lies hidden in the ‎heart of the beautiful natural environment of Zagori.! It is tucked away southeast of the Astraka peakσ, vibrant with light blue crystal clear water ‎ponds, steep slopes on both sides and lush vegetation. ‎
