Take part in an exciting journey exploring Greece's rich wildlife and impressive culture. You will be based in a single good quality hotel, and will take daily field trips to National Parks and cultural sites. These trips will be kept to a maximum of seven or so hours giving you plenty of time to relax before and after. During your day visits, you will always be accompanied by inspiring experienced environmentalists, who have an intimate knowledge of the region's fauna and flora and will share with you their knowledge and expertise on the Parks' unique wildlife and ecosystems. You will have the chance to visit few of the most distinct archaeological and historical monuments of Greece. All these in comfortable four wheels drive cars and in groups not exceeding eight persons.

This expedition takes places within the five National Parks of Epirus Region, renowned for landscapes of exceptional beauty, marvellous variety of fauna and flora and fascinating cultural heritage. Depending from the visiting period, we will have the chance to observe and get hands-on knowledge on some of the unique key features of these exceptional areas. The region's ancient, historical and religious heritage will not be forgotten, as we will enjoy breathtaking landscapes from the amazing Meteora monasteries; visit the world-famous theatre and oracle of the Dodoni archaeological site; feel the mystic of the Oracle of the Dead or "Nekromanteio"; wander in the narrow streets of the historical villages of Zagori region with the stone houses. There will be also a possibility to visit Perama cave with the astonishing stalagmite formations; the well-known Vasilitsa and Anilio ski resorts; the Arachtos river for rafting activities; the Acherontas river for horse riding and more.
