A narrow and challenging Greek road from Prousos to Karpenisi

Located in Evrytania, in central Greece, the road linking Prousos and Karpenisi is said to be one of the most dangerous roads in Europe.

Prousos-Karpenisi road

The road is paved and features many extremely narrow parts, impassable for 2 cars at the same time. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice.

The road runs alongside the Karpenisiotis river and is 28.9km (17.95 miles) long. It links the Prousos village and the Karpenisi town. It's normal for your palms to sweat looking at those photos, imagine what it must have been like before the barriers. But the tiny brick wall at the edge of the road is not going to stop your vehicle from going over.
