Thessaloniki to Metsovo – Private Day Trip

This lively mountain town in Epirus, with its diverse history, traditions and customs is a popular winter holiday destination

It’s another world 1,000m above sea level. The town of Metsovo perches on one of the most beautiful slopes of the Pindus Mountain range, the ‘crossroads’ of Epirus, Thessaly and Western Macedonia. Built like an amphitheatre, its tile roofs and wooden porches stretch out across the slope, its grand mansions nestled in between beech and fir trees. The soothing sound of water always on the move adds to the majestic atmosphere. This is an ideal destination for lovers of relaxing mountain holidays.

RECOMMENDED TRIP PLAN (We will try to show you as many sights as we can according to the time we will have).

  • Bear square
    Metsovo’s main square is one of the most famous attractions of mountainous Greece and thousands of visitors pass through it every year, stopping to take a picture next to the monument of two bears exchanging glances, while elderly Metsovites look on, conversing in their local Vlach dialect.
  • The famous cheese of Pindus
    It’s called Metsovone and is a delicious traditional smoked cheese, one of the most popular in Greece. They say that it contains all the aromas of the Pindus Mountains. The secret is in the milk, provided  by the region’s farmers, whose animals roam freely in the surrounding valleys from spring until autumn.
  • Averoff Gallery
    More than 200 paintings and sculptures by the great Greek artists of the 19th and 20th century are exhibited here, the most significant focal point of culture  in Epirus. Lytras, Gyzis, Volanakis, Parthenis, Hatzikiriakos-Gikas, Tsarouhis, Moralis and  Fasianos are just a few of the big names in the collection, housed in a spectacular building with three floors behind the town’s main square. This museum is well worth a visit during your trip to Epirus.
  • Aoos lake
    The high altitude of this artificial lake at the source of the Aoos River makes it the only one of its kind in Greece. In the winter the blue water sinks into the white landscape and in the summer it’s draped in the foliage of the dense riparian forest. The beech forest gives way to a forest of firs to the north of the lake, the boundary of the Pindus National Park and the renowned Valia- Kalda. The serene setting is relaxing, an idyllic alpine landscape.
  • Water Power Museum “Mantani” at Anthohori Village
    Anthohori village is located around 11km southwest of Metsovo, in Epirus, Western Greece. At an altitude of 1,100 meters in the heart of Pindus Mountain, the village is home to the largest Water Power Museum in Greece. The open-air museum is the only of its kind in the region and covers an area of eight acres. The Water Power Museum highlights the importance of hydropower in traditional society. It is an open-air museum with a restored watermill and some fulling-tubs. It focuses on the basic pre-industrial techniques that exploits the power of water to produce a variety of products, and links them to the history and everyday life of the local community over time. Rona stream, which originates in Mount Lakmos, runs through the village. The water of the stream feeds the fulling-tubs where up to the mid-20th century, locals used to wash their woolen fabrics and the flourmill where grains were ground. The museum is in the midst of an area of incredible natural beauty and is surrounded by stone-paved paths and small arched stone bridges. There you will find a restaurant where you can get drinks and taste traditional dishes. There is also a small shop to buy local products. It is a remarkable museum, worthwhile a visit if you find yourself in Metsovo or the surrounding area. A visit to the Water Power Museum can be combined with a visit to the 17th century Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi and the waterfalls of Anthochori. The museum is open daily from 09:00pm to 11am.
  • Donkeys Farm at Chrysovitsa Village
    Farma Metsovou is located in the mountainous village of Chrysovitsa, wider region of Metsovo and covers 50 acres of sheltered slopes. Donkeys farm was established in October 2014.
    Since ancient Rome, the milk of the donkey was used by man against diseases and aging of the skin.
    Recent clinical studies, mainly in countries such as Italy and France, certify that donkey milk is the only natural food product of animal origin, with the closest characteristics to those of breast milk.
    According to research and clinical studies in large pediatric clinics abroad, in infants and toddlers allergic to cow’s milk, it appears that 90% of the children in the study, drinking donkey milk, did not show allergic symptoms.
    In addition, the presence in this milk of probiotics and nitrogenous compounds with antibacterial actions, make this product very useful and necessary for the nutrition of the elderly and debilitated people.
  • Monastery of Agios Nikolaos of Metsovo
    The combination is one of a kind;  a river, grove, fountain, huge sequoia, wooden bell tower and a stone-built monastery. Metsovo’s Agios Nikolaos was established in the Byzantine era and is one of the most important monasteries in the area.
  • Politses Ski Resort  (Winter Season)
    It may be small, but it offers all the necessary facilities for amateur skiers. Metsovo’s ski resort is in Politses, at an altitude of 1,400m, and has five pistes and three lifts.
