The mountainous complex of Vitsi with the dense beech forests, the
rare fauna and flora, constitute one of the most interesting destinations of the
visitor in Kastoria. The
region has remained untouched by the human activity and maintains the unique beauty
of the wild nature. The area, with its exquisite geomorphology and its picturesque
neighbourhoods, is a treat place ofro walking and sightseeing. Vitsi is protected
on a national level as a shelter for games and constitutes an ideal biotope for
the menaced species of bear.
On the mountain Vitsi and in a distance of 22 km from the city
of Kastoria there is an organised ski centre. The ski centre is situated on
the road that leads from Kastoria
to Florina, on the north
side of the village Polykerasos.
The road asphalt paved and it is cleared from the snow.
