Day 2 The day will be divided between capturing the monasteries and some more selective shots of the landscape.
Day 3 It takes 2 hours to reach Papigo village in Zagori. Photo task is the village itself, nesting under the vertical slopes of the surrounding mountains, with its stone built houses of magnificent local architecture and its quaint alleys.
Day 4 A 3-hour climbing up to the brink of the mountain Timfi to the refuge. The panoramic view is breathtaking as the alpine scenery spreads all around along with the vertical rock slopes of Astraka with its imposing cutting edges and ridges, forming one of the most amazing natural parks of Europe. After a short break for rest and lunch in the refuge, you continue to cross and photograph the meadows lying among the mountains. After ascending a small slope, the legendary Dragon Lake reveals itself to us, at 2200 m. height upon the edge of the cliff. A night’s staying over in the refuge is part of the experience.
