Pelion

Pagasitikos Gulf τo one side and, to the other, the Aegean, in between, a magical mountain to discover! Its soft slopes and easily accessed peaks make Mount Pelion a popular destination for hiking lovers and weekend mountain climbers.

One gains an exhilarating experience all year round when visiting Mount Pelion or its traditional villages, whether it’s in mid-winter when everything is covered in snow or in spring or summer when colourful wild flowers cover its slopes, which are full of fir, chestnut, oak and beech trees.

Pagasitikos Gulf τo one side and, to the other, the Aegean, in between, a magical mountain to discover! Its soft slopes and easily accessed peaks make Mount Pelion a popular destination for hiking lovers and weekend mountain climbers. 

The mountain has relatively low levels of wilderness and elevation. Its highest summit, Stavros, is 1.624 metres, stretching for approximately 50 Km.  

Water gurgles in the fountains and sunbeams stream through the leaves of the plane trees, oaks, beeches, gardenias, hydrangeas, camellias. All around you, nature flourishes here in the fertile soil of Thessaly. In the autumn, a surreal palette of orange and red unfolds before you. Pathways, old churches, beaches with peacock-coloured water all add to this multi-coloured assemblage. Up high, its villages teeter on the edge of the mountain.
