In 2010 the Vikos-Aoos region, part of Northern Pindos National Park, became a Geopark. Due to its unique geological heritage there are numerous geosites with a wide range of geological aspects. They form a landscape of incomparable beauty. Natural processes have carved out an impressive relief. The steep rocky mountaintops alternate with deep gorges and hill sides with lush vegetation. Tectonic structures, glacial remnants, alpine lakes, rock shelters, caves, waterfalls and river terraces designate Vikos-Aoos Geopark (greek=γεωπάρκο Βίκου Αώου) as a unique and exceptional destination.
