The vistas and colours around the Vikos Gorge and Zagori region, north-western Greece, were simply stunning when we visited in autumn.

The Monastery of Paraskevi is gorgeous and a great vantage point for Vikos Gorge(eous) views.

You stumble across lovely stone bridges in the area.

The gorge itself is described as the `deepest in the world'. I seem to have come across quite a few canyons and gorges described as the 'deepest/widest/largest/longest in the world' across my travels (even one here recently in Australia of all places). But no doubting this one is  spectacular.

It makes for some dramatic views.

Small rivers in the area have bluer than blue waters.

If you're thinking of visiting, I do recommend autumn as a great time to go.

I didn't expected such autumn colors in greece...beautiful set, John. #1 is really spectacular, the contrast between the glowing trees and the dark rock is just great!

Thanks Heike, I agree, for some reason I didn’t anticipate such spectacular autumn colours in Greece.
