The hotel is located on top of a private mountain on the footsteps of Pindus National Park. Established in 1966, Pindus National Park is considered one of the most important protected areas for the maintenance of mountainous biodiversity. It’s characterised by extensive forests of black pine and beech in the park's lower and middle altitudes and Balkan pine at higher altitudes.
Metsovo is one of the leading hiking destinations in Europe and the Grand Forest offers an amazing hiking experience. The “Ursa Trail” has been accredited as “Leading Quality Trail – Best of Europe” by the European Ramblers’ Association.
Located on the doorstep of Pindus national park, Grand Forest Metsovo is surrounded by forests that host a population of Eurasian brown bears – a conservation priority species. Other mammals found in the park include wolves, deer, wild cats and the Balkan chamois.
The park further provides shelter for more than 80 species of birds, including 10 types of rare bird species such as the eastern imperial eagle, the golden eagle and the lanner falcon. A large variety of reptiles, amphibians, and insects, complete the picture.
Metsovo, the jewel of Epirus, is a lively mountain town bursting with tradition, breathtaking nature and top-class wine. Metsovo is famous for its smoked cheese and has a number of bakeries that still run on wood-fired ovens. Don’t miss the weekend market near the main square.
