Zagori Stone Bridges 3-hours Hike
Zagori is well known for its traditional network of footpaths with stone bridges, which were built to connect its 46 villages until modern roads were opened. Starting from the village of Kipi, which once served as a local government, we will walk on several iconic and impressive stone bridges of the area, built in the 17th-18th century and usually known by the benefactor who paid for their construction.
During our hike, we will have the chance to visit Lazaridi’s museum in the picturesque village of Koukouli. The museum is housed at the house of its creator, Kostas Lazaridis, who gathered all the rare flora of Vikos gorge with a lot of care. In the museum, we will have the opportunity to discover rare plant collections that grow on the canyon’s rocks and to learn about the “Doctors of Vikos”. Then we will head towards Kipi village, following the ancient stone path of Koukouli, also known as “Koukouli Steps.” In Kipi, our beautiful hike will end.
