If you love vast towering rocks that echo your calls, deep gorges, and wild scenery the Gorge and its associated stone villages are something not to be missed. You can visit historic stone bridges, head into the many stone villages for meals and sight-seeing, or if you're super-energetic indulge in some serious bush-walking in the region. Walk to the viewpoint... More

Must admit that I had never heard about this gorge but we visited on a day trip from Parga ,you walk down from the village of Monodentri to the monastery glad it was October and we were the only group going can imagine it would get crowded in the summer. We then went up to Oksia known as the balcony... More

We walked here 3 days after the rain - and it was slippery going downhill (and you will have lots of downhill, as the path goes up-down-up-down on the first half once you're in the gorge). The views are amazing.

We did this as an organised trip from nearby Parga, so glad we did, what a stunning place. Visited a couple of villages in the region, which to be honest looked like nothing I have ever seen in Greece before, utterly gorgeous. Walked to a little monastery, about a mile I guess, this might not be easy if you have... More

The views over the gorge are amazing! We went to the Convent of Agia Paraskevi which is a nice small stone village which also has a few restaurants. The view is superb there but nothing compared to the one from Oxya Viewpoint 10 mins away to the north.

Took an organised trip from Parga. Very good travelling through a village to see storks nesting on poles. Then on to see the bridges in the valley....very unusual. Continued up to view the Gorge from the top...amazing views. Lunch in a Taverna where the cheesepie was fantastic. Walked down to the Monastery in the valley which was interesting and countryside...

If you hike straight through it's about 3h-3.5 hours. We considered a half hike, starting from Monodendri and returning at the water faucet (about 1/3 to half way through). But when we got there we realized we're not the "turning back" type and continued on to Vikos. This was a good choice: the views on the second half of the... More
