Written by in , Comments Off on Spend Time in Nature in Epirus in Northern Greece

The majority of Greece, in both the mainland in the islands, is made up of mountains. This adds drama to the terrain no matter where you go. However, there are some regions that are more dramatic and hauntingly beautiful than others. In Northern Greece, for example, the Pindus Mountains is located in Northern Greece and also stretches into Albania. However, there are places even in Northern Greece that are more stunning than others. Epirus is one of those places. Here’s a look at what to do in Epirus in Northern Greece:

Archeron River

Since this area is stunningly beautiful, it makes sense that there are plenty of things to do in Epirus that have to do with nature. One of the best places for this to happen is at the Archeron River, where visitors report is a great place for a picnic, to go canoeing, for a hike, or even for a swim. It’s very easy to spend the day here relaxing and enjoying the natural setting.

Vikos Gorge

If you love hiking, you won’t want to miss the chance to visit Vikos Gorge! Although there are several ways to see this gorge, the best is to hike through it so that you can get some of the best views. Be sure to bring food and plenty of water, and to not take on more than you are capable of. To get the most out of this hike, you might want to consider hiring a guide.

Papingo Rock Pools

You also won’t want to miss the chance to visit the Papingo Rock Pools while in Epirus! Not only is this a beautiful place, but it is also relaxing.
