Greek Gorge Challenge

24 - 27 September 2017


Our Greek Gorge Challenge is set in the stunning Pindus Mountains in northern Greece, and takes you through the spectacular Vikos Gorge in the Zagori region - one of the World's deepest at 1600m in places. A unique opportunity to trek in this remote corner of Europe - with limestone peaks, dramatic gorges, mountain lakes, dense woodland, and stone villages.

This challenge is tough - with 2 long days on foot with some big ascents enroute - widely regarded as the most beautiful trail route in Greece - and will be unforgettable!
