Greece's 'Little Switzerland', Evritania has some of the purest air anywhere in the world. The Alpine slopes, clad in fir and chestnut and riddled with gushing rivers, are a majestic setting for hiking, horseback riding, skiing, kayaking or white-water rafting. This diverse region of mainland Greece makes a great escape any time of year.
Karpenisi is built amphitheatrically on the slopes of Mount Tymphristos, at an altitude of 1000m.
Evritania is renowned for its mountain honey, sausages and prosciutto, river trout, and delicious cheeses.
