Vikos–Aoös National Park is one of Greece’s most picturesque locations which contains lakes, rivers, canyons and plenty of dense forests to explore. The national park lies north of the city of Ioannina, in the region of Zagori. It is 150 km away from Sivota and was designated a National Park in 1973. Its core area consists of the Gorge of Vikos, the length of approximately 10 km. At the lower part of the gorge a rushing river flows, which becomes a permanent river (Voidomatis) at its end. The peripheral area is larger and includes the Aoos Gorge, the area of villages of Mikro Papigo and Megalo Papigo as well as a narrow area around the Gorge of Vikos. The rivers found in the park offer the chance to go kayaking and rafting, and Vikos Gorge, one of the greatest gorges, is filled with lush nature and rare wildlife. The area is also a place where many rare plants are gathered and sustained. Vikos–Aoös National Park offer an impressive landscape and visitors love it.
