The first days will be in Karpenisi, an area almost entirely formed of mountains that has a lot to offer to an explorer. Rich forests, mountains, plateaus and valleys. Karpenisi, is one of the least populated regional units in Greece and a well known destination that offers unforgettable moments to any visitor. The last days of the tour we will move to Lake Plastira. An artificial lake located at an altitude of 800m in Central Greece and is characterized as one of the most easily accessible destinations of the country. The scenery is breathtaking, as the lake is surrounded by high leafy mountains and the area is considered to be a “paradise” for all nature lovers and mountain bikers.
