Meligi – Kostaniani Distance: 25 km

Aoos Lake Distance: 32 km
This route nearly encircles the artificial lake of Aoos and takes riders on a unique journey through some of the area’s most scenic parts. The path begins and ends at two locations along the main road connecting Metsovo to Milias.

Vasiliko – Kefalovriso Distance: 17.5 km
Thrill-seekers will appreciate this route up through Mount Douskon until the village of Pogoniskos.
