Welcome to the logistics page for the village of Papigko. The village is located above the vikos gorge and under the large mountain of Timfi at an elevetion of 950m. The village is quite popular and is rather large. The village has plenty of hotels and many reastaurants. Here i will tell you how to get there, how to prepair for you hiking andother possible things you can do in/from the village.
The village is accesible from either Konitsa to the north or Ioannina to the south. You must reach the Zagoroxoria area and pass other well known villages to finally reach Papigko. Drive to either Ioannina or Konitsa and from there you can easily reach Papigko.
Where to Sleep
There are multiple hotels and houses in the village most are great and recommended. If you are in the area during May-October you can always sleep on the mountain hut for the measly 13 euros per night.
Prep the Snacks
Sadly there is only one quite overpriced store to buy food and snacks from. The store is located at the center of the village and has a selection of snacks and food you can cook with. If you are on a budget and preping to stay on the mountains for long i would recommend buying food from a large city. (Ioannina or Konitsa would be fine)
