About Zagori - famed for its stone bridges

Zagori is a geographical area consisting of 46 traditional villages. It has something for everyone: pine and fir forests, crystal clear waters, traditional stone bridges, beautiful churches and a wealth of flora and fauna.

Papingo in western Zagori is a famous settlement built on the sides of Mount Astraka. It consists of two settlements: Small and Great Papingo and both have kept their traditional appearance with large manor houses, cobbled streets and fresh mountain springs.

Drakolimni is the biggest lake of the Vikos-Aoos National Park and is located in the mountains of Timfi.

Vikos Gorge is in the Vikos-Aoos National Park and crosses west and central Zagori. It is approximately 12km long and its cliffs reach 1200m.

Monodendri is probably the most well-known of the traditional Zagori settlements. The large manor houses and churches reflect the wealth of its citizens during Turkish occupation.

Reviews

"I've been meaning to write since we got back from our trip to thank you for helping us to organise the 8 day self drive part of our longer trip to Greece. We had a fantastic three and a half weeks away, with all the different parts fitting together really well. Northern Greece was a revelation to us, absolutely stunning. All the accommodation was good, with really friendly and helpful staff.The directions you sent were excellent, although, as the Greeks don't seem to go much for road signs, we did have problems getting in and out of town (having stopped in town) onto the right road around Ioanina. Luckily my husband had a portable GPS that he uses for geocaching which proved very helpful. Apart from that it was fine!"
