Our hiking route starts from the plateau “Politsora” which is located at a height of 1300 meters. Here, we follow the Ursa Trail (Bear’s Path), the Leading Quality Trail of Europe, after having gone through a beautiful meadow where you can see horses, cows and sheep grazing. We continue our route and climb through a beech forest, about 500 meters higher, up to the top of “Karakoli”. From there, the path goes downhill and it is characterized by amazing panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and the artistic creations made by the students of the Athenian Fine Arts School. After about 3 km we arrive at the old Tositsa-Averoff woodwork factory which is at the edge of the village of Metsovo. Moving through the narrow, picturesque streets, one can admire the architecture of the settlement, drink fresh water from the tiny fountains, and observe the daily routine of the habitants. Our hiking route ends at the center of the village where there are many souvenir shops and traditional restaurants to eat
Distance 5-6 km estimated time 1: 30-2: 00 hours.
