the world's most spectacular roads

Aristi - Papingo road

Aristi - Papingo road is a very scenic drive in the Ioannina regional unit, Epirus, Greece, going through the Pindos Mountains. On the drive down you are rewarded with views of a mountainous landscape blanketed in forest as far as the eye can see. It’s one of the famous hairpinned roads in the world.

The road links the towns of Aristi and Papingo. It is a steep and winding road that takes you slowly past the Voidomatis river. The road encompasses miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. It’s asphalted and includes 23 hairpin turns. The views are breathtaking, but these subtle hints on every turn remind you to keep your eyes on the road. The road is pretty steep. It starts in Aristi, at an elevation of 620m above the sea level, and ends in Papingo, at 930m. The road is 10.8km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 310m and the average percentage is 2.87%. But the road includes some 10% sections.
