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!
