Description

Located in northern Greece, the Pindus Mountains are perfect for practicing winter activities, and ski touring is the local people’s favourite ! These mountains separate the Epirus region from the regions of Macedonia and Thessaly.  With their steep slopes and white peaks, adventurers from all over the world choose these mountains to spend some time away from noisy and busy cities. The Pindus Mountains are the perfect place to relax and have fun, all at the same time!

On this occasion, I propose to you a challenging 4-day program that will probably leave you breathless! Every day we will ski down from different mountain summits such as Goura’s (2.467m) and Gamila’s (2.497m). We will also choose some comfortable spots to spend the nights in order to recover from the last adventure and prepare ourselves for the next one: a remote hut in the mountains or a B&B in a small charming town are some of the accommodation options I offer.

On this trip I can take a maximum of 3 people with me. We will be climbing to 3000m so it’s necessary to have some ski touring experience and be physically prepared for the challenge. You will need all your strength and energy to climb those steep mountains.

Sounds tempting? Come join me on this incredible trip in the Pindus Mountains and live the experience of a lifetime! Send me a request to book this trip and I will be happy to be your guide!
