The walks


June – Zagori region, intermediate level, 5-7 hours walking every day

The group came together at the El Greco Hotel in Thessaloniki on 2 June. A guided tour of historic Thessaloniki, dinner and a good night’s rest. The next day by private mini-bus to the region of Zagori for five days of hiking. We had a professional guide with us on all the hikes. The hikes went through very varied landscapes. Some of the highlights were: alpine lakes and meadows, mountain goats, pine forests, Vikos Gorge, stone bridges, sheer cliff faces, icy mountain streams. Much of the tour was at altitudes exceeding 1,000 metres and on rocky steep paths. The tour ended in Thessaloniki.
