Pelion in Summer
Pelion in the summer is a particularly special place for summer holidays, since it offers a combination of a relatively cool climate and picturesque surroundings. Sample Pelion’s seasonal fresh fruit, which is delicious, and of exceptional quality.
Take a journey on the Moutzouri steam train, from Lechonia to Milies. A route which makes its winding way through the abundantly green countryside. The only stop of the train is for just 15 minutes in Ano Gatzea, before it carries on its way blowing out steam, its wagons rocking along the track, on a journey with a total length of 15 kilometers lasting about 90 minutes.
Swim in amazing beaches with turquoise waters and dense vegetation which rolls down as far as the sea.
If you choose to take a cruise on a sailing boat, you can explore the hidden beauties of the Pagasetic Gulf or the Aegean.
If you would like something even more adventurous, the wild beauty of Pelion also offers opportunities for:
- scuba diving,
- canoeing on the sea,
- and hiking down canyons and ravines.
Live the unique experiences of the religious and traditional fetes and festivals that reflect the cultural and artistic side of Pelion.
Before you leave, do not forget to pick up some of Pelion’s local products: spoon sweets, honey, herbs and other local specialties.
