Full description

Embark on an exhilarating River Trekking adventure, starting from the charming village of Vikos and venturing towards the enchanting natural springs of Voidomatis. This captivating journey, with a difficulty level of 3, allows you to immerse yourself in the majestic beauty of the Vikos Gorge.

Equipped with wet suits, we begin our trek by crossing the river multiple times, marveling at the sight of traditional stone bridges elegantly spanning over the glistening waters. The breathtaking scenery of the ravine surrounds us as we navigate through this remarkable landscape.

The Voidomatis River, with its stable temperature of 4 °C year-round, offers a refreshing dip in its pristine blue-green waters. Despite its icy coldness, the river’s purity is renowned, making it one of the cleanest rivers in Europe and providing the opportunity to enjoy a revitalizing swim. The crystal-clear water is even potable, adding to the uniqueness of this experience.

Midway through our trek, we pause to indulge in a traditional picnic amidst the serenity of the gorge, replenishing our energy for the remainder of the journey. Our path leads us further, culminating at Aristi’s bridge, where we conclude this unforgettable river trekking expedition.
