Located in the Trikala regional unit, Thessaly, Greece, the Kleino-Amaranto Road is an insane journey. Make no mistake this terrifying road does not allow for forgiveness.
Running west-east, the road links the villages of Kleino and Amaranto. It’s mostly a dirt road paired with sweeping, slippery and hard gravel that definitely demands pure concentration. 4x4 vehicle required. The route is a long series of single track, unbarriered, off-road hairpins but it’s after the summit that it becomes really challenging.
It’s one of the most challenging drives of the country. The drive is 9.9 km long via 8 hairpin turns. The highest elevation of the road is at 1.600m (5,249ft) above the sea level. It’s very narrow and pretty steep, with some sections up to 10%. You will be driving just 12 inches from each side of the mountain and often at times there’s no barrier to keep you on the road should anything go wrong.
