Omalos - Agia Irini


Trail Omalos - Agia Irini
(11 votes)

Some of those who cross the gorge of Agia Irini, start their course from the plateau Omalos and reach the village of Agia Irini, before entering the canyon via the E4 trail. The trail has amazing views to the groves with the full of the typical cypress trees of the White Mountains.

The route starts from Omalos and moves west along the road that leads to Agia Irini. We initially cross position Seliniotikos Giros (the west passage to Omalos plateau) and then the church of Saint Theodori. After about 500m we leave the road and hike in the path that initially runs alongside the road (on the south of the road).

The trail descends to a small plateau from where the gorge of Fygou starts. We cross the plateau and keep walking in the very nice ancient paved path that ends at Agia Irini.
