Top Ten Gorges and Canyons in Europe; Walking and Hiking



From The Guardian last year

The Vikos Gorge came first in this article by Adam McCulloch (13 August, 2015).

"People don’t often think of Greece as a wilderness, but bears still range through the wooded Vikos in the Pindus mountains of the north-west, and groups of wild boar run amuck through its forests. At 20km in length, 1,600 metres deep and with its straight sections topped with uniform limestone precipices, this is an unmistakable canyon".
