When travellers come to choose their holiday they know that Greece has everything they are looking for. It is a safe destination, with great weather, amazing landscapes, warm hospitality and a fascinating history and culture. Greece is a country of beautiful contradictions - you could walk through the olive groves and archaeological sites, move to clusters of islands, go through beaches and mountains and explore the breath-taking scenery all in one trip.

Pelion is the perfect example of that. With so many undiscovered and commanding treasures waiting to be discovered, this beautiful mainland gem is  sure to captivate the most discerning of travellers whether interested in nature, hiking and trekking, cycling, sea sports, history and local festivals, arts and crafts or just simply good food and wine!

Pelion is a destination in its own right. It is one of the most mountainous and fertile areas in Greece. Scattered across the Peninsula are over 70 stone built  villages, all varying in size, from the famous mountainous villages of Tsagarada, Portaria and Zagora, to the beautiful coastal resorts of Mylopotamos, Fakistra and Agios Ioannis.

Pelion is also a haven for outdoor enthusiasts offering a variety of sea sports as well as horse riding, mountain biking and scenic walking trails passing through beautiful villages and sights of cultural interest. Pelion is an area of great natural beauty harmoniously combining lush landscapes with azure seascapes.
