Activity description

This wonderful round hiking tour takes us through Vitsa, Koukouli, Kipi and Dilofo, all gorgeous traditional villages of Zagori at the Ioannina region of Greece. We will have the opportunity to see, admire and walk on the old stone bridges that interconnected the Zagori villages, for hundreds of years.

Our hiking adventure will start from Vitsa village, where we will hike downhill towards the famous stone made path of ‘Vitsa Steps’. We will then meet the iconic Misios stone bridge and we will continue hiking towards Koukouli, a beautiful traditional Zagori village.

Then follows Koukouli and our next stop will be at Kipi, where we will hike several of the famous arched bridges of Zagori. Our hiking tour will continue through a dense forest towards Dilofo village and after a while our walk will come to an end at Vitsa village of Ioannina.
