Such a beautiful place. A must see, take your camera and click away. Where ever your eye falls on it is incredible. The colour of the river and the trees with roots growing in the river is spectacular. So peaceful and surreal. This was our second visit there and it still was like seeing it for the first time
This rive has fantastic colors once it gets out of the ground. If you'll visit the Vikos canyon observation points, which have amazing views of their own, you'll be quite surprised to see that the river is (may be) actually dry on those spots. But further down, definitely below the village of Vikos and under the bridge of the road... 更多
We took the relatively easy and medium level hikes on both sides of the gorge as well as down in the gorge together with 3 kids, youngest on being 3--ranging from 4km to 10km each path. We would have done more if we stayed more days. Each with something amazing to see---if you like walking it's a perfect place to... 更多
This is a great place to go rafting but also just to take in the peace and quiet and the freshness of the river waters. The temperature of the water rarely changes from 9°C so it is cold but crystal clear. The bridge is a classic arch design. It is not a long river but it is all stunning.
It is a very beautiful, crystal-clear river with light blue colour. The springs in the Vikos gorge are an interesting place to see, the river walk, next to huge, old plane trees with a little, almost ruined rock monastery of Agioi Anargyroi with wonderful frescoes is worth doing.
I walked the trail down, weather was not favorable, so you must take extra precaution when wet and slippery. The colors and nature with crocus blooming and cyclamen, primula and all the vegetation is beautiful. The trees were just starting to change color so it wasn't significant, however, Vikos is beautiful and the river is worth visiting.
You could only see a small part of the river if you were hiking the Vikos gorge. At the beginning you'd encounder a nearly dried-up riverbed, occasional puddles and beautiful rocks and pebbles. Along your ascent towards Papingo, you'd hear the river quite magestically. The water's so pretty turqoise when you go towards Vikos. Refreshing.
