The Voidomatis River, with its clear and icy waters, originates from the Vikos Gorge and meets the Aoos River in the plains of Konitsa. It is one of the few rivers with drinkable water, and its blue waters maintain a steady temperature of 4 degrees Celsius throughout the year. It's definitely worth daring a dip, especially during the summer months, provided you have carefully considered it beforehand.
The swimming holes are located at an altitude of 980 meters within a small gorge, creating a stunning landscape. This phenomenon was formed by the famous Rogovos stream, which eroded the ground over time. The swimming holes extend for about 200 meters, and at the beginning, there is a large artificial pool, perfect for a refreshing swim. As you go higher, the scenery becomes wilder and more beautiful. Climbing enthusiasts can reach secluded yet unique swimming holes.
It is a mesmerizing location with significant ecological value.

The gorge stretches for 10 kilometers and features steep and rocky slopes, adorned with rare flowers and herbs. Its width ranges from 30 to 100 meters. The river that flows through it, Voidomatis, has water from November to June.
