Welcome to Konitsa
A workaday regional hub that's also a popular base for Greek hunters, Konitsa sprawls down a hillside, along a wide zigzagging road. But this effectively makes the town an amphitheatre for the real attraction: the dazzling wild scenery all around. Snow-capped peaks loom near and far, cut through with dramatic hiking trails. The Aoös and Voïdomatis Rivers converge in the lush valley below, and are great for rafting and kayaking. To the northwest are the Mastorohoria, famous for centuries for craftsmen, especially the bridge builders who worked around the region. At the end of the day, Konitsa has a few good places for a cold beer and one last look at the amazing view.
