3-Day Pelion Adventure Tour Details

3-Day Pelion Adventure Tour is a wonderful private tour that offers the visitor the opportunity to discover the Greek mountainous and seaside side of traditional Greece. 

Pelion is a place that offers great opportunities for active holidays such as canyoning, biking, hiking, horseback riding, swimming.

The lush green mountainous peninsula is crisscrossed by a good network of marked paths connecting the picturesque villages with old monasteries, waterfalls, and stunning beaches along the coast. From traditional kalderimi paths to shady forest trails and coastal walks the possibilities are endless.

Pelion range is unique in the sense that it provides a view to the sea on both its sides and most hiking ends up in stunning sea views.  Its lush green during the spring, summer and early autumn, it has beautiful colours in late October and November, with green, orange and red, and it’s wonderfully white with snow in the winter.

This 3-day private tour is flexible to your taste and your way of enjoying new places. It can be customized fully with activities or it can be at a very relaxed pace. The extra activities  – like hiking or riding etc –  come as an extra cost to the price of the tour. Please ask us for more information on this incredible place!

NOTE: It can be extended to 4-day if you wish to visit the unbelievably beautiful cape of Trikeri, the southeast part of Pelion famous for its seafood.

Itinerary

Day 1Pick up, Volos, Makrynitsa, Portaria, Chania, Kissos, Tsagkarada (Pelion Villages)

Your driver will pick you up at a flexible morning time and set off towards Pelion and our first destination, seaside Volos town.  Volos is about 3,5 hour far from Athens, it has a beautiful port side where boats go to Sporades islands and is famous for the “Tsipouradika”, traditional taverns that serve local Greek mezedes, small tapas dishes with Tsipouro or Ouzo.

After your lunch, we will ascend to Makrynitsa, “The Balcony of Pelion” one of the most iconic villages of Pelion. On its main beautiful square, you can visit the Byzantine Museum, with exhibits from the 13th c AD.

Next stop, the  Monastery of the Dormition of the Theotokos, founded in 1215 AD.

After Makrynitsa we will pass by charming Portaria, continue to Chania, a popular ski resort and visit Kissos, a lovely village, perched on the hill slopes at an altitude of 520 meters covered with plane and chestnut trees. Its must-see is the 3-door Basilica Chruch of Saint Marina from the 17th c, one of the best Basilikas in Greece and Agriolefkes the second ski resort of Pelion (if it is winter).

After Kissos we reach our final destination for the day, arresting Tsagkarada village.

Overnight at 4-star or Boutique Hotels like  The Lost Unicorn, depending on availability.

Day 2Tsagkarada, Damouchari beach, Fakistra beach, Xorychti, Lampinou, Milies

On your second day, we explore Tsagkarada which is sprawled in a large area, reaches out over two slopes and has many charming spots.

Tsagkarada is characterised by the beautiful mansions, the traditional neoclassical houses, stone-paved cobbled streets and the elaborate fountains all in a very lush green environment. 

A beautiful easy walking spot is the magical green environment is a short stroll to the old Stone bridge built in 18th c. 

From the main square of Tsagkarada where the 1000-year-old gigantic plane tree stands – the width of the trunk exceeds 15m! –  start exciting hiking trails which we can organise with a local experienced guide if you are interested (extra cost, please inquire).

One of the many trails starts from Tsagkarada and goes all the way to the sea in Fakistra famous beach and in Damouchari seaside village, where you can have your lunch by the sea. 

After Tsagkarada we travel to Xorychti, a photographic village at 420 m elevation, and can visit Lampinou sandy beach close by for a seaside coffee or a swim. We then pass by Kalamaki, on our way to another famous Pelion village Milies.

Overnight at Milies. At traditional mansions like Archontiko Filippidi 

 

Day 3Milies, Vizitsa, Pinakates, Kato Gatzea, Athens

After your breakfast, we explore Milies, a striking traditional Greek mountain village, at a height of 400 m on Mount Pelion. Milies is notable for being the terminus of the narrow-gauge (60 cm) Pelion Railway, built in 1895, the station of which we will visit. The exciting view you have from this hilly place includes the sea (Pagasitikos bay), the forests of the mountain, Evia island, and the traditional villages around.

Next, you will visit the old library and the local Folklore Museum. The area is ideal for horse-riding and other outdoor activities.
