Epirus manages to be a one-of-a-kind destination: an enviable combination of cultures and traditions with an exceptional natural environment that it never fails to surprise and delight its visitors. Epirus has the diversity of a country, containing, in a relatively small area, beautiful mountains with forests and olive groves, lakes and rivers, peaks and gorges, beautiful cities, rare archaeological sites, and fantastic beaches!
This unique region is ideal for extreme activities such as rafting at Voidomatis River, mountain bike at the vertical mountain slopes of Mt Tymphe, kayak down the Arahthos gorge passing under the impressive multi-arch Papastathis Bridge, canyonning at «Stena» canyon, near river Kalamas and nature walks around the Zagorochoria villages.
The journey to Epirus will turn into an unforgettable experience once you have savored its culinary delights, the mouthwatering pies, the smoked local cheese in Metsovo town, the savory syrupy sweets or phyllo pastries from Ioannina and the white wines of Zitsa.
