The North-West part of Greece is blessed with the most dramatic terrain in the country. Our adventurous itinerary passes through the sprawling Pindos mountains and Meteora, which means “suspended in the air”. Meteora is famous for the stunning rocks that stand in the wilderness and reach 700 meters in height. The monasteries were built by monks six hundred years ago on the top of these rocks, creating a unique natural wonder made of nature and man.
Moving northern to Pindos, we'll find the magnificent 12-km long Vikos Gorge (probably the world’s deepest gorge), a national park filled with forests, waterfalls, and ice-cold mountain lakes, surrounded by the Zagorohoria’s immaculate stone villages. Zagori region is considered among the purest & untouched in Europe. South of these mountains lies Ioannina, a city with character, which unfolds around a placid lake.
