Holidays in Volos and Pelion

Consider embarking on a dreamy holiday adventure in the heart of Greece – the captivating duo of Volos and Pelion. Nestled between the Aegean Sea and snow-capped mountains, this region transforms into a winter wonderland, offering a unique blend of coastal charm and mountain magic.

Start your journey in Volos, a vibrant coastal city with a rich maritime history. Stroll along the picturesque waterfront, where the brisk sea breeze mingles with the warmth of local hospitality. Indulge in the city's culinary delights, savouring fresh seafood in cozy tavernas (aka tsipouradika) and exploring the lively market squares. Begin your cycling adventure along the enchanting waterfront. Feel the sea breeze as you pedal along the paved promenade and the scenic coastal road that offers charming views of the Aegean Sea, passing by cafes, parks, and local attractions. 

Venture into the Pelion Peninsula and be greeted by snow-draped landscapes and traditional villages that seem to be plucked from a fairy tale. Makrinitsa and Portaria, adorned with charming architecture and cobblestone streets, invite you to step back in time and experience the authentic charm of mountain life.  For those seeking outdoor adventures, Pelion delivers with its array of activities. The Chania ski center beckons snow enthusiasts, while the Centaur's Path offers picturesque trails for hikers and nature lovers. Whether you're just starting your hiking journey or already have some experience, Pelion's terrain accommodates a wide range of skill levels.
