Ipsarion Mountain on Thassos

View from the mountain Perhaps one of the most exciting excursions to & nbsp; Thassos is a journey to & nbsp; Mount Ipsario, the highest point of the island. Actually, Ipsario in & nbsp; translation from & nbsp; English sounds like a & quot; insignificant elevation & raquo ;. However, if you are a professional climber, if I'm not a professional mountaineer, Ipsario will seem at least a significant place and it will be enough for an altitude of 1206 meters for eye.

This tour can be organized with the help of tour operators, for example, Muzenidis offers its own variants Travel. You can go yourself, but & nbsp; with & nbsp; an adequate assessment of your driving skills, and & nbsp; also taking into account the capabilities of your vehicle.
