You will depart from Aristi village and you will head for the picturesque village of Elafotopos. The most demanding parts of the route are the first 5km and the last 3.5km to Elafotopos, but thanks to our e-bikes we will enjoy the journey without much fatigue. Once we reach the village and drink our coffee or tea, we will visit Lena where we will have the opportunity to watch the traditional looms, to learn about the wool cycle and to create our own handmade memorabilia with the technique of "Felt ", the oldest fabrication technique, without the use of tools other than our hands and water. Depending on the period of our visit, we can also test our skills in milking the sheep and make cheese or butter or harvesting mushrooms. We will also learn how to cook the traditional pie of Epirus and of course we will enjoy it altogether.

On this tour, optionally and upon a prior notification, we can also visit the Museum of Traditional Professions that operates in the old school of the village. There, Mr. Michalis will welcome us and will guide us to a beautiful exhibition room comprising over 1,000 tools of traditional professions, some of which have ceased to be practiced.

Finally, we will ride our e-bikes and return to Aristi village, filled with unique experiences that will surely travel us many years back in time.
