02 METEORA TOUR


Whether you are interested in geology, history or byzantine art you shouldn’t miss this tour in the heart of region Thessaly: just above the small town of Kalambaka rise the rocks of the Meteora. On top of these rocky pillars, old hermits built their monasteries, to be as close to God as possible. As the monasteries grew more important, rich imperial funding and donations arrived. Some of the most important byzantine masters decorated the monasteries with stunning works of art. This way, natural beauty meets with human art, creating one of the most famous landscapes of Greece.

04 MOUNT ATHOS


Relax on a cruise in the Athos gulf, while enjoying the astonishing view over the byzantine monasteries of Mount Athos. Since the 10th century a.D., Athos has been a monastic state dedicated to the Virgin Mary; only monks can live here, access is prohibited to the women, while men need a special permission to enter, so the cruise is the best way to visit it. On our way, we pass by ancient Stagira, birthplace of the ancient philosopher Aristoteles, while at the end of the cruise you can enjoy picturesque Ouranoupolis and a fish lunch in one of the local taverns (not included). Return to Thessaloniki in the afternoon.

05 THE GREAT WAR DAILY TOUR


On 5 October of 1915, the 10th Irish Division and the 156th French Division landed at the port of Salonika, Greece. Their arrival was brought on by the combined attack of the Germans and Austro-Hungarians on Serbia. Such was the force of the attack, that it threatened the very existence of Serbia and the participation of Bulgaria only came to make matters worse for the Allied Forces. Despite their efforts, they could not prevent Serbia’s defeat.
That was the start of the Salonika Campaign, one of the lesser known but more interesting chapters of the Great War. Between 1916 and 1918, ferocious battles were fought along the Doiran Front by an Allied army of remarkable diversity – 6,000 men from six different nations: British, French, Greeks, Italians, Russians and Serbians.
During this daily tour, we will have the opportunity to visit some of the most important battlefields, memorials and graves around the region of Salonika and Northern Greece, as well as places associated with the support operations, which will provide us with a clear overview of the evolution and historical importance of the Salonika Campaign.

06 MOUNT OLYMPUS, ENIPEAS GORGE DAILY HIKE


Mount Olympus is a mythical place, associated to the presence of the ancient gods! Hence it remained in the imagination as a place of light, which is also the meaning of its name. But above anything else, Mount Olympus is a mountain of stunning natural beauty, with unique flora and fauna. Its position, right on the Pierian coast of the Aegean Sea makes it a place of encounter between alpine heights and Mediterranean mildness!
Starting from Litochoro, we will follow one of the most enchanting paths of Mount Olympus, the Enipeas gorge, following the flow of the Enipeas river. Clear, visible paths and small wooden bridges over the crystaline waters make it an enchanting experience to hike until the Prionia, midway to the top.
Alternatively, for those who wish to enjoy Mount Olympus with considerably less physical effort, instead of Litochoro we depart at 08:00 and arrive at St. Dionysius monastery. Following a 2-hour hike we arrive at Prionia. Time at leisure and on the way to Thessaloniki short stop at Litochoro.
