Even if the rest of Greece is hot during August, the dense oak trees shades of Vikos Aoos National Park, in the North Pindus Mountains, make hiking the Vikos gorge possible. We visited the area in mid-August.

After an exciting one hour of walking / swimming, we reached this stone bridge. This is the point where you can walk upon the rocks and reach the top of the bridge. The view is breathtaking. From there you can go back to the river or you can follow the path on the right hand side (follow the red spots). It takes about 45 minutes to go back to where you firstly started walking in the river. We chose the second option. We were completely wet by the river and we really enjoyed walking in the dense green nature.
