INDEPENDENT WALKING HOLIDAY SPECIALISTS IN SOUTH PELION.
Come and discover Pelion, an area of incredible beauty. Mount Pelion, 1600 meters high, provides a towering backdrop to the verdant hillsides of olive groves, woodland and scrubland. Traditional villages, with narrow stone-cobbled lanes, offer shaded platias to relax over a coffee, or enjoy fresh Pelion cooking in a choice of welcoming tavernas.
Pelion is the perfect place to get away from it all. The villages are peaceful and retain their traditional charm. The turquoise water of the Pagasitic Gulf is calm, warm and crystal clear. Walking through the olive groves down to a deserted cove with a white marble pebble beach for a picnic lunch; strolling through the wilderness to a monastery on a tiny island without cars; following a traditional cobbled pathway to a hill village for an authentic Greek meze meal; you are sure to find something in Pelion that is perfect for you!
Our walks take you off the beaten track, from coast to coast through unspoilt countryside to sleepy hill and fishing villages. We follow ancient cobbled kalderimia, (donkey paths), dirt tracks and goat paths to get you right out into nature. See tortoises, buzzards and song birds, abundant butterflies, bright green lizards and fluorescent dragonflies, dolphins, wild flowers galore, wild herbs and orchids, with commanding views over the Pagasitic Gulf, Aegean Sea and Skiathos Straits to the Sporades islands beyond.
