Greece in winter

Jump to last reply

We are meeting friends in Greece for 10 days from 31 Dec. I know - not the best time - but no choice. Our friends will have already spent 2 weeks in the Peloponissos, and we are meeting them in Ioanina. Plan is Zagoria, Metsovo, Meteora, maybe Pillio, maybe Karpenissi as we make our way to Athens for the last 2 days. We like to do a few hours hiking each day, but will be flexible due to the weather. If it is terrible, we will make our way south or to the coast.
So my questions are: How terrible can it get? Any suggestions of what is doable and what is not at this time of year? Is it too much driving for 8 days at that time of year? Are we completely crazy?
Many thanks for any insights...
