In the Epirus region of north-western Greece you’ll find Zagori, a cluster of 46 stone villages (the  Zagorochoria) and also a beautiful natural area with great opportunities for outdoor lovers.

In the region there are two natural parks, alpine lakes and rivers, the deepest gorge in the world (‘Vikos gorge’) and many peaks above 2500 m.

Besides, there are different climbing areas that will delight both beginners or advanced climbers.

On this 3-day trip we’ll visit three main climbing sectors:

These are great spots for multi-pitch and sport climbing. Besides, you can also explore the stone tower and even climb on top of them. You’ll find more details about climbing routes and grading on the itinerary below this description.
