Tour Details

Every hiker’s paradise, all year long: that is Mount Pelion, the mythical mountain of centaurs, the mythological race of creatures half-human half-horse. A peninsula overlooking the Pagasitikos Gulf on one side and the Aegean Sea on the other, embellished with small picturesque villages, Pelion offers the possibility to move around exclusively on foot, following the ancient, paved paths of the merchants, who created the region’s wealth. Gifted with abundant beech, linden and maple forests and some of the most beautiful coastlines of all of Greece, Pelion constitutes the ideal place to spend some time in the pure enjoyment of Nature.
