Why we love it
Go on a hike with us in Greece and see the dense beech forests of Mountain Pelion. To get there, you’ll cross small beautiful streams. You’ll get to visit a secluded small waterfall and then play around, swim in the cold waters of a well hidden natural pond!
This easy, family-friendly tour is an alternative, active and fun way to experience Pelion's natural beauties and make memories of a lifetime! Your local tour leader will help you discover the local community, life and history of the area, through stories from the region's rich mythology.
You’ll meet with your tour leader at the outskirts of the village “Zagora” and will then transfer to the starting point of the tour on a private vehicle. During this 15-minute drive you’ll be briefed about the tour. The hike will begin high on the mountain. You’ll be walking on a forest road which is surrounded by beech trees. After a bit of walking, you wll start to descend on a footpath that is surrounded by lush forested area. In the middle of the hike, you will stop and enjoy the first break around a small magical waterfall — hear the calming sounds and be relaxed. After your break, you will keep descending until you reach a hidden natural pond — this is where you'll spend your second break. If you find the courage you can even take a dip in the freezing waters! After relaxation you will continue your hike towards the starting point through paths surrounded by apple fields and chestnut trees.
