Viros Gorge

VIROS GORGE. It is 20 km long and is located just outside Kardamili. Its wild beauty is similar to Samaria gorge. Viros gorge is surrounded by many different signed routes, all of which pass by scenic villages with Byzantine chapels and beautiful stone buildings. You can walk until Viros river springs (2hours and 30 minutes). After that the gorge becomes difficult to walk through. Close to Viros springs several old flour mills are still preserved.

The route starts from old Kardamili by going up inside the gorge. After almost an hour you will see the white/red sign that leads to Likaki monastery. Continuing towards the gorge's bed and after an hour you will reach Sotiros monastery located in the right side of the gorge. There is a visible pathway which goes upwards and leads directly to Pedino settlement.
