National Park of Ainos

The National Park of Mount Ainos is the setting of a magnificent fir-tree forest, itself home to fauna and flora of all kinds. Most impressive is the Black Fir, which can reach 20 to 30 meters in height, and can live up to 500 years.

The best time to visit Mount Ainos is in the spring, when weather conditions are favorable for exploration, and most of the plant species have blossomed. A winter visit is also a mesmerizing experience, with the snow-capped mountains serving as an active reminder of the calm beauty of the season. Either way, the view atop this peak is always breathtaking.
