The mountains of Konitsa are considered to be a hiker and mountaineer's paradise. Konitsa is surrounded by Mount Smolikas (2637 m) the second highest mountain in Greece, Mount Grammos (2520 m) the fourth highest in Greece, Mount Tymfi or Camel (2497 m) the fifth highest in Greece. Next to it we have the Gorge of Aoos River and at a distance of 8 km we have the Gorge of Vikos. It is the only area in the world that has two (2) gorges, the one parallel to the other.
This is due to their large number and their extensive surface combined with the fact that one is essentially a continuation of the other thus, forming a single unity. Also, the great variety of terrain and vegetation contributes to this as well as the existence of many old paths that are still in good condition.
