The path of Vidra is a riverside path in the middle valley of Arachthos that connects the prefectures of Ioannina and Arta and belongs to the municipalities of North Tzoumerka and Arta. Most of it stretches along the west bank of the river. It starts from the bridge of Plaka, crosses the Tzari Bridge, and ends at the hydropower complex (watermill, whirlpool, possing tub) in the flatland of Skoupa. It is 17,560 km long and runs through the settlements Plaka, Raftanaion, Monolithi, Platanoussa, Dafnoti, and Skoupa, while three vertical sections complete the d.
The path is accessible through the Plaka Bridge or vice versa from the Tzari bridge, the villages, and the vertical routes (A2, A3, and A4). It is fully labeled and secure. There are springs, water fountains, and kiosks for the hikers’ rest along the path.
The actions that take place are:
– Hiking by mountaineering clubs and individual visitors.
– Visits of primary and secondary schools from all over Greece, mainly on the vertical path A2 of Skoupa.
