In Epirus, in the heart of the Pindus mountain range, you find Zagoria, also known as Zagorochoria. Zagoria is in fact a total of 46 picturesque villages nestled in valleys and on mountain slopes. Their trademark are the stone houses with grey-tiled roofs and narrow alleys, as well as the magnificent arched bridges over the rivers of the area. Zagoria is neighbor to the worldfamous Vikos Gorge, part of the Aoös National Park.

The landscape is wild and rustic, perfect for hiking and river rafting. Go visit during your autumn or winter holiday or do a day trip to Zagoria from Ioannina, the capital of Epirus.

Zagoria has gained status as a top alternative travel destination for extreme sports and activities, such as rafting in Voidomatis River, trekking, and horseback riding. Of course, the most impressive location in Zagoria for hiking is Vikos Gorge. It is the second deepest gorge in the world after Grand Canyon. Most people do not consider Greece as a skiing destination, but the Zagoria is great for ski holidays, you will find ski centers nearby.

This magnificently beautiful region is still unknown to international tourists and therefore a perfect travel destination off the beaten track.

Visit the Zagoria famous Villages, with the modern restored stone houses of mythical beauty, nice small tavernas and beautiful landscape. Zagori is an area of great natural beauty, with striking geology and two National Parks, one including the river Aoos and the Vikos Gorge, the other around Valia Kalda, to the east of the imposing snow-capped Mt Tymphe. The 46 or so villages of Zagori were interconnected by mountain roads and traditional arched stone bridges until modern roads were opened in the 1950s. The stone arched bridges were built by benefactions from expatriate merchants in the 18th century and replaced older wooden bridges.

The region has been historically difficult to access due to its mountainous terrain which likely contributed to its unique character. The Sarakatsani people who can be found in this area use several Greek words of a Northern Greek dialect not commonly found in Greek elsewhere.[4] They are consequently considered by some as indigenous to the area.

The municipality Zagori was formed at the 2011 local government reform by the merger of the following five former municipalities, that became municipal units (constituent communities in brackets):[2]


The Vikos Gorge or Vikos Canyon at the heart of the Vikos–Aoös National Park, is the most impressive natural feature of the region. A seasonal river runs through the Vikos Gorge which is about 38 km long. The deepest part of the gorge is about 12 km long. In the middle of its main part, far from road access or villages, it is traversed by Megas Lakkos, an equally deep secondary gorge. The Voidomatis river has its source in the Vikos Gorge and then continues to flow through its own smaller gorge into the river Aoös. The Vikos Gorge at 990m deep near Monodendri while Mt Tymphe, in which it lies, is 1350 m at its highest peak. It is one of the deepest gorges in the world, indeed the deepest in proportion to its width. The Vikos Gorge is also a site of major scientific interest, because it is in an almost pristine natural condition, untouched by human activity. It is a haven for endangered species and contains many and varied ecosystems.


Kalarrytes is a village and a former community in the Ioannina regional unitEpirusGreece. It is populated mostly by Aromanians (Vlachs). Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality North Tzoumerka, of which it is a municipal unit. The municipal unit has an area of 39.959 km2. The population in 2011 was 192.

Syrrako AromanianSiracu) is a village and a former community in the Ioannina regional unitEpirusGreece.

Syrrako is built on the slopes of Mount Peristeri (Lakmos) in the Pindus, offering natural shelter and security. Syrrako is separated from its twin village Kalarites by the deep ravine of the river Chroussias, a tributary of the Arachthos. Tradition says that the river’s name derives from Νeoptolemos’ son, Chroussios, who drowned there, not being aware of the fact that water rises fast during bad weather conditions.
