A road-trip audio tour at Tzoumerka: a string of 65 villages nested like eagles among the thick forests and the ancient rivers of the Athamanika mountain range, whose craggy slopes and peaks soar towards the sky. It is a breathtaking reminder that in this corner of Greece it is still possible to experience a wild, primordial beauty, unsullied by mass tourism.
