Our trip to Zagorohoria in photos – DAY 2

The beginning of the path is the place in Monodendri where scenes of ‘Anaparastasi”, the movie of the great Greek director Theodoros Angelopoulos,were filmed, in 1970

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.

Our base was Monodendri village, on the rim of the gorge.

Day 2 

12Km : Monodendri – Kokori BridgeVitsa – Monodendri

Acheron River, where experiences are endless

Acheron River (ποταμός Αχέροντας) is one of our favorite places in Greece and we have already written a post about this paradise place. Last summer we visited Acheron River again. And that time we were determined to walk and swim into its cold waters. So we prepared ourselves, bought river shoes (you definitely cannot walk in the river without them) and a waterproof case, where you put your keys, some money and your phone (it is advisable to have your phone with you if you decide to walk a long distance). You can buy these at the stalls at the start of the walk, near the parking places. Leave behind a bag with a towel and dry clothes to change when you arrive back.

The water was freezing at the beginning. And this is the most challenging part of the walk. Because of the springs, the water at this point is very cold and you may think that you cannot manage walking any further. We recommend you start walking fast. Or rest for 5-10 seconds on the banks so that your body gets used to the temperature. And then start walking again. The water temperature gets better after a couple of minutes. Nature becomes stunning, and your walk more adventurous. For some short distances you must walk through narrow paths and slippery rocks. At some parts the river gets deeper. Swim hard and fast to cope with the current of the river. Stop for a while, listen to the nature sounds and feel the vibes of this ancient place.

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.

One of the most beautiful spots on the way back was this narrow tunnel in the rock. The area is also known as Skala tis Tzavelenas and is a must for those who like hiking.
