Greece is a synonym to summer, with the beaming sunsets, crystal clear waters and nature at its best, that’s a fact. Let’s think out of the box for a moment and consider the option of visiting Greece in winter instead. The village of Metsovo is thought to be one of the best winter destinations in Greece, with its picturesque and traditional architecture and white slopes.
Set between the city of Ioanninato the north and Meteora to the south, Metsovo is a charming little town that seems to be untouched by the passing of time. Resting at the slopes of the mountains of Pindos, the town is surrounded by lush vegetation and forests, mountains, streams, plains and small plateau areas, thus creating unique and diverse scenery.
Grand mansions and stone-paved streets, Byzantine and alpine architecture and impressive green landscapes will take your breath away. Although it is a popular winter destination, Metsovo still manages to combine in harmony the past with the present and be an idyllic shelter for the winter. Do not miss out visiting the 15th century church of Aghia Paraskevi, the Monastery of Aghios Nikolaos, the village of Anthohori and the artificial lake of Aoos springs.
Located at an altitude of approximately 1200m on the Pindos range, it is only natural that Metsovo would offer a variety of outdoor activities, such as skiing and snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, rafting, or mountain biking. Moreover, the town is known for its local weaving and woodcarving culture, as well as its cheeses (Metsovone, Mestovela) and winemaking.
Have a taste of the authentic Greek culture and make unforgettable memories at one of the best winter destinations in Greece. Visit Metsovo and we promise you’ll never regret it!
