Ski touring Greece

Description

8 days

Distance

Ski touring Greece is an opportunity to ski where only a few descents have been made! The tours take place around the area of Zagori, Mt. Timfi, Mt. Smolikas and Mt. Vasilitsa. It is a tour which combines the culture and the nature of the area, but also gives fantastic runs, guaranteed first tracks, and relative easy access! The mountains of Pindos are smooth and the snow guaranteed, a tour for every ski tourer!!
