    Metsovon Off The Beaten Path

    This Caterpillar has the size of a small finger. I found it on a spurge. With its bright black, red and yellow colors, it does not try to hide, which means that it worn its possible predators that it is toxic and not edible! Moreover, it has at the rear (left of the photo) powerful spine! Just in case the warnings would not be enough! It is the...

    Papingon Off The Beaten Path

    9km before you reach Megalo Papingo you will pass from Voidomatis river. The arched concrete bridge over the river was built in 1923 with donations from immigrants from Papingo and connects Aristi with Papingo. Voidomatis river springs near the village of Vikos (4km from Aristi) and ends down near Konitsa. Its length is 15 kilometers and has...

  • Aoos lake

    The artificial lake Aoos is very beautiful after spring but it was great to see it one really cold winter day when we drove through the snow. The lake was frozen and the landscape was really spectacular. You can drive around the 30km, cycle with mountain bike or just fishing and bird watching! There are many small islets. Of course it was so cold...

  • Syrrako

    We visited Syrrako on our way to other villages in Tzoumerka. It is a traditional mountain village about 56km from Ioannina city. We drove there early in the morning in late may (2014) from Ioannina, the route was beautiful and the location of the village is breathtaking just over the gorge where Chrousia river runs (tributary of Kalarrytikos...

Kalpaki is not attractive, it is actually a transport hub for those who travel to Zagori villages or toward north Greece or for the border...

  • Central Zagori

    Central Zagori in an area 30-40 km north of the Ioannina city that includes several different villages. It’s nice to visit some of them because the Zagori area is one of the most pictuarsque and unique areas in Greece. There you can see the traditional stone houses with their simple clear lines. Usually they have 2 floors with big rooms and the...

  • DODONI's ancient site

    Dodoni is an easy day trip from Ioannina and its so famous that it's not really off the beaten path. I just put it here because its 22km away.
