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!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
