Description

Ski touring in the Pindus Mountains is an interesting alternative for those skiers who want to enjoy an off the beaten path experience. This mountain range, located in northern Greece, is also called the “spine of Greece” because it runs along the border of Thessaly and Epirus region. These mountains and valleys create a wonderful environment for adrenaline-filled adventures.

During this 6-day trip, we will descend from great summits, sliding down on steep challenging slopes. Therefore, good fitness and previous ski touring experience will be necessary to join this trip.

After a nutritive, hot breakfast, we will head to our objective and spend a few hours enjoying great runs while we discover the best landscapes in the region! At the end of the day, we will rest in our comfy accommodation and prepare ourselves for more fun-filled adventures.

You will be able to enjoy a great experience in the mountains, surrounded by wonderful snow-covered peaks, away from the noise, and to enjoy an adrenaline-filled ski touring program at the same time!

So, if you find this trip tempting, send me a request, book your spot and enjoy a unique experience in the Pindus Mountains with me!

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
