Walk with us on the beautiful Greek peninsula of Pelion, which – according to mythology – was chosen by the gods as their summer residence. Here it becomes clear what life quality really means.
Halfway between Athens and Thessaloniki is the beautiful Greek peninsula of Pelion. Hiking in Pelion – the “Switzerland of Greece”, which is a carefully cultivated paradise. What you won’t find here are masses of tourists. Here you can hike through oak forests in the morning, swim in secluded bays at noon and have dinner in romantic village squares under huge plane trees in the evening. The abundance of water in the region is testimony to many springs and the basis for a rich flora. The picture is rounded off by lonely bays, numerous beaches and idyllic fishing villages. The picturesque mountain villages with a view of the glittering Aegean Sea, which are under a preservation order, make this peninsula one of the most interesting travel destinations in Greece.

On Pelion we undertake 4 hikes and we are walking among pine forests and olive trees and on high paths parallel to the sea. Unique views of the blue Aegean Sea and the green slopes of Pelion accompany us there. We encounter many different plants and herbs on our hikes on unspoilt trails. We take part in a interesting workshop with topic “Olive oil and herbs” and make a trip with a traditional mountain railway.
We visit the world wonder – the floating monasteries of Meteora – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The monasteries are still partly inhabited by monks and nuns. The monastery “Agia Triada” became worldwide known, because in the year 1981 a part of the James Bond film (In deadly mission) was shot there. During one of our hikes we meet the famous “Mama Mia beach”. Other highlights are the day trip to the island of Trikeri and a visit to a biological vineyard with wine tasting.
