Zagorochoria in northwestern Greece is ideal for hiking and immersion in nature – but also for visiting villages!

The seat of the municipality is the village of Asprangeli.

It has an area of about 1,000 square kilometres and includes villages, known as the villages of Zagori, and has the shape of an inverted equilateral triangle.

There are 46 stone villages scattered on the slopes of Pindos and in most of them, time seems to have stopped in the 19th century.

Among the fascinating villages you can visit are Megalo (big) Papigo and Mikro (small) Papigo which are twin villages with beautiful architecture, lakes and excellent hiking trails.

Kipi is another village worth exploring, as it is one of the oldest in the area and sits astride two rivers, making it ideal for rafting, canyoning and climbing in breathtaking scenery.
