7 DAYS THESSALONIKI-PELION

A place for all seasons

7 DAYS THESSALONIKI-PELION

per person

Perched on the mountain slopes, set against an idyllic backdrop of shimmering olive groves, dense forests, and lush orchards, Pelion undoubtedly has something mysterious.

 

A year-round destination, the purifying snowfalls, along with the misty and foggy atmosphere in the winter, emit an exclusive charm, while the village’s narrow labyrinthine roads, crossing extensive chestnut forests will spellbind you.

 

Travel to the home of the mythical centaurs, ski with a view of the Aegean and discover pathways, old churches and traditional villages on the edge of the mountain.
