Vikos- Aoos Geotrails

Hike and discover culture, environment, and heritage. 

 

Due to its location in the convergence space between two tectonic plates (African and Eurasian) Greece is one of the most active and “vivid” sites of the world and therefore has a variety of past or “nascent” geological formations, geoforms, geological processes having both particular scientific or educational value attracting strong international interest, as well as high cultural and tourist value.

The geodynamic processes that have occurred over geological eras have created complex structures of extraordinary beauty and uniqueness that can be truly characterized as real nature monuments. Such forms are scattered across the entire country and most of the times they constitute places of admiration, pleasure, and observation. From now on, these monuments shall be called Geosites. Under certain conditions, complexes of geosites can form a Geopark.

The Vikos-Aoos Geopark was founded in 2010
