Hiking is the visitors’ favorite sport, but you can also do water sports such as rafting and canoe kayaking. There is a 7 hour hiking path to Zagorohoria for the  adventurous. If you are not used in walking that long, a beautiful route by the river -starting from Konitsa‘ s bridge and ending at the Monastery of Stomio- is only 1.5 hours long. It accommodates just one monk who would be delighted to start a conversation with visitors as he is alone most of the time.
