Category: Zagoria Sightseeing > Vikos Gorge
This is truly one of the most important sights in Zagoria plus it is among the best gorges in Europe. The gorge runs from Monodendri to the village of Vikos. The locals told us that this is the best way to cross it but we were not ready for such a dangerous operation. We took our (rental) bikes and went riding to the famous Monastery of Agia Paraskevi which is abandoned today. It offers a breathtaking view from up there as it is built at the edge of a rough rock of Vikos Gorge. Visitors can safely watch the view from a terrace of the chapel whereas there are numerous caves located east of the monastery.
As we rode through a pleasant route, we made a short stop on the bridge of Kokori. Notice its exceptional architecture and style. We returned at the road to Vitsa and Monodendri and went straight where the road leads to village Aristi. We made a short stop there and we had a coffee at the square under a big plane. We headed back to Monodendri and enjoyed the rest of the day by walking around the village. It is a difficult route but an incredible visit! My advice is to go in spring, when the day is longer and the weather is better. In winter, it is very snowy in Zagoria and can be dangerous. In Vikos Gorge, we also saw some people mountain climbing. They seemed to put a lot of effort, but probably had fun!

Category: Zagoria Papigo
Our base in Zagoria was Papigo. This is one of the most beautiful and most famous villages of the area. Excellent architecture and traditional hotels to stay. Our hotel had a great balcony with view to the mountain. I loved sitting in that balcony and drinking hot, Greek coffee. Definitely have a car when you go at Zagoria, because there are so many nice villages to see around and public transportations are so inadequate.
Close to Papigo is Tsepelovo and Kefalovriso, both excellent experiences. If you go from November to February, it will probably be snowing. Have lots of trainers with you for the rough roads and heavy coats.
