The geopark Vikos - Aoos is one of the most impressive areas of Greece with regard to the aesthetic value of the landscape and the range of geodynamic processes affecting it.
All these processes have formed a large number geotopes amidst the beautiful landscape of Pindos with great scientific, research and aesthetic value. The presence of water is everywhere evident, resulting in the development of major rivers, streams and aquifers. Especially the mountains of Tymfi include a large number of steep cliffs, canyons, glacial lakes, springs and rivers with crystal waters.
Evergreen vegetation consisting mainly of oaks, holm oaks and deciduous oaks are found in low altitudes, with conifers black pine and fir as dominant. The ridges instead are characterized by alpine meadows and Balkan pine.
This extraordinary landscape is also characterized by a high endemism of flora and fauna. More than 2,000 species grown in the area, some of which are very rare or endemic and also over 300 species of vertebrates. Among them, the bear, the wolf, the otter, the golden eagle and the alpine newt are protected by European legislation.
