Dirfys, Evia

Ski Touring Dirfys in Evia, Greece.

Dirfys in Evia, the holy mountain of the goddess Hera, is located on the island of Evia, and is just 60km from the Athens. A quick hour and a half drive makes Dirfys a perfect day trip. But don’t be fooled, this mountain is serious. It’s a well known fact among Greek mountaineers that Dirfys is one of the most dangerous mountains in the country. Like the goddess herself, Dirfys is known for its striking beauty, but also for its vindictive temper to those who disrespect it.

More on Dirfys and Winter in Greece

One of the most surprising things about Greece is how close the mountains are to the major cities. Three quarters of the county lives within a 2 hour drive of world class backcountry ski touring. Due to the recent break-though in ultra lightweight gear, Greece has become a world-class destination for ski touring and split-boarding.

Greece is a place that inspires the human soul. Certainly, for skiers and snowboarders, to visit the same mountains that you learned about as a child is an experience that is completely unique. Imagine spending the night on Mt Olympos, waking up to the sunrise across the Aegean sea, then skiing run right next to the Throne of Zeus. It’s magic! It’s an experience you won’t find anywhere else on the planet.
