National Park of Tzoumerka, Peristeri and Gorge of Arachthos

The National Park of Tzoumerka, Peristeri and Arachthos Gorge occupies an open land area of about 820 km2, stretching across the mountainous regions of Ioannina, Arta and Trikala Prefectures (central part of the Pindos mountain range).

In the different habitats grow a lot of rare and endemic species of plants. The terrestrial ecosystems host many rare & protected species of mammals such as the Otter,the Brown bear, the Wild Goat.

The area is particularly important for birds, & hosts hundreds of species of invertebrates, fishes, amphibians & reptiles.

The National Park constitutes an enormous outdoor folklore museum and characteristics as much of the natural, as of the human made environment.  Stone bridges, cultural monuments, traditional settlements, man work, combine with unique harmony, with beautiful landscapes, steep mountains, gorges, caverns. This perfect sculptured coexistence of the structured by people’s hands and natural environment, lends to the region its uniqueness.
