    Gorge - ous Greece

    A varied week of great walking, stunning scenery and delightful villages - led by Aris, an excellent guide, and enjoyed in the company of some excellent fellow travellers.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The first proper sight of the Vikos Gorge (followed closely by the Monasteries atop the rocks of Meteora)

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Excellent - professional, friendly, accommodating, sensitive to the group's needs and abilities and he laughed at my jokes

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Make sure you have warm layers for the night in the refuge - it can get cold in there. That said, those who used the blankets provided rather than lugging a sleeping bag up the mountain did seem happy enough with them. Oh, and be warned, they only have one COLD shower!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I enjoyed it all. Thessaloniki is a good start and end to the trip. We had a very good first group meal in a local restaurant called Rouga.

    As Good As It Gets

    The trip exceeded my hopes and expectations. This was hiking trip through some of the most beautiful and historically significant sections of central Greece. It included satisfyingly challenging hikes through outstandingly dramatic landscapes, stays in traditional picture postcard villages and food that was both characteristic and delicious. Our guide was as good as it gets.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    It would be too difficult to choose a single moment. The Vikos Gorge was an outstanding natural beauty and completing that hike was a triumph. Climbing by wild horses, bursting wild flowers, laden burros, a herd of goats and reaching Dragon Lake as the sun came out felt exhilarating. Sitting among the jagged peaks of the wilderness at the retreat as the storm rolled in was other-worldly. The villages were immaculate and picture perfect. The food at our last dinner was almost transformational.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Aris was outstanding in so many ways. He was humorous, congenial, attentive to every nuance, a skilled hiker, organized (just watch him lay out the lunch provisions!), concerned about our welfare, and knowledgeable and insightful about the area and about Greece in general. He was diplomatic yet directive when he needed to be. There were many balls to juggle at one time and he did it professionally yet remained a true friend of the group. We couldn’t have asked for better.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    While it is classified as “Moderate/Challenging,” the trip notes suggest that this is a trip for someone who I moderately fit. That could be interpreted subjectively. Perhaps reword it to that participants should be able to master challenging sections of hikes.

    Amazing Greek Mountains

    This trip takes you to Northern Greece firstly to discover Zagori National Park. The scenery is spectacular and not what typically comes to mind when someone mentions Greece. Starting in Thessaloniki you head west to Zagori staying in two characterful villages, Vitsa and Papingo, built in the traditional stone style on the mountainside. Unfortunately, the first two days of the itinerary were affected by the weather, but when the weather improved the walking was brilliant. After a variety of walking coupled with dramatic mountain views, you then head to Meteora, how those monks built those monasteries still astonishes me!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    For me, my two favourite days were the Vikos Gorge walk and the hike up to the mountain refuge and on to Dragon Lake. We were super lucky with the weather and views were beautiful. There was still some snow around Dargon Lake. In the summer on the return from the refuge, there are some pools which would be perfect for a refreshing dip!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Stavros was a very enthusiastic leader who was obviously passionate about the mountains and surrounding area. He has been leading trips here for 14 years and has gained a wealth of knowledge. This was his first time leading an Exodus trip, with this in mind he did a great job.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The mountain refuge was cooler than I was expecting, so I would recommend taking layers! The water here is drinkable, amazing mountain water, so don't forgot to take your water bottle. Walking boots are a must as the terrain is often uneven, there are walking poles available there if you do not wish to take your own.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This really is a hidden gem, one waiting to be explored!
