Route[edit]

The western end of the Greek National Road is in the small town Thermo, in Aetolia-Acarnania. It first runs west along the northern shore of Lake Trichonida. It turns north at Agrinio, and continues through the sparsely populated mountains of northeastern Aetolia-Acarnania. The highway crosses the Kremasta reservoir by the Episkopi bridge. It continues east through the mountainous Agrafa area, part of the Pindus mountains. It passes through Karpenisi, the capital town of Evrytania. East of Karpenisi, it passes through a tunnel under the Tymfristos mountain and enters the Spercheios valley. It follows the river Spercheios downstream, through Makrakomi and Leianokladi, and ends in Lamia. The Greek National Road 38 passes through the following places:
