On Day 6 there might be a problem on the Part from Panagia to Meteora. This part of the road is a very frequently used deviation for all traffic from Egnatia high way towards Trikala and Larisa. This practically means a lot of heavy trucks and long queues with passenger cars. The road has a lot of twists and very few opportunities for safe take over... In case you encounter trucks you add an half to another hour delay more... But the important is that you will not see much from this part.
One nice alternative would be to take the route to Kastania, Amaranto, Chaliki and then Metsovo.

Hi snpl!
Thanks a lot!
Something like ALT_B?
Would be ALT_A also an option, or do I end up in traffic too around Panagia?

Day 06 ALT_A: 5h10min, 210km
Epar.Od. Meteoron-Kallitheas nach EO Kozanis Ioanninon

Day 06 ALT_B: 5h50min, 236km
Epar.Od. Meteoron-Kallitheas nach EO Kozanis Ioanninon

Yes Alt_B is what I had in mind. Both are valid options though.
For Alt_A I have not done the route since at least 10 years. But I do not expect traffic from egnatia high way to divert there since E92 is the preference for trucks since is the fastest route.
