Karpenisi, located just a few minutes from Lamia, provides easy access for Athenians; therefore, it represents an ideal destination for winter getaways! Akis Tsakiris conveys the atmosphere of the “little Switzerland of Greece”
From the popular valley of the river Karpenisiotis to Prousos monastery and from Velouchi Mountain to the artificial Kremasta Lake, Karpenisi offers a wide range of sightseeing all year round. By staying in the lovely Lecadin Hotel, located in Karpenisi, we were given the chance to explore most of the area of Evrytania.
The ski centre area is waiting for you to spend an unforgettable weekend. Even a quick gateway in Karpenisi can be a great experience thanks to the impressive mountains that will capture your attention with their natural beauty and the small, lovely, stone villages – might not be found on a map – will definitely become a destination for your next weekend escape.
And if you think that the above covers the range of options you have in Karpenisi, then you are wrong! There are many more places for you to visit such as: the cobbled roads of the Old Little Village and the Grand Village, the dreamy village Butter, the monastery of Prousos, the Museum of National Resistance in Koryschades. If you are a sports’ lover you have a wide variety of options as well: trekking, riding, canyoning, bike riding, 4 × 4 trails and paintball. Furthermore, in the area there are more than 15 offices that can help you with the activity choices for your weekend stay.
For the romantic ones or the ones who just want to escape from their heavy workload, the before mentioned propositions may seem tiring. For them, the local tourist community provides a large number of rooms with great view of: the Karpenisi village, the rivers, the surrounding mountains. All these create a romantic, back to nature atmosphere that only Greece can offer us.
