Overview

Our tour combines two of the most stunning locations of the region of Thessalia. Mythical home to the Centaurs, Pelion is a Natura 2000 area of outstanding natural beauty with clean mountain air, rich forest, and pristine blue waters. Home to over 23 idyllic 'stone-villages' set in mountain slopes, charming fishing bays, and woodland hamlets & a step back in time before our visit to the 'Rock-Forest' landscapes of Meteora and their Monasteries.

Designed with over fifteen years of experience in Greece, our tour provides a well-paced, thoughtful, and comprehensively planned experience with attention to every detail, and our permanent staff of highly experienced and knowledgeable English-speaking Professional drivers will be at your side throughout.

In addition to a basic High Standard, flexible booking options allow you to include additional elements such as Lunch Style, Professional Archaeological Guides, Admission Tickets, and Hotel Type, whilst all aspects may be further tailored.

  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included

Know More about this tour

From Pickup at your Hotel in Athens we reach Pelion after approximately 3.5 hours but can take the opportunity along the way to stop along the coastal route for lunch or a break to swim at one of the pretty villages along the way. On reaching Pelion we start to ascend the slopes to visit two of Pelions most famous villages before check in to your comfortable accommodation & rest before the evening where you can enjoy the local cuisine on one of the village squares underneath the gigantic 800 year old plane trees.

 

Over the next two days your driver will tour the area with you visiting the chains of mountain & seaside villages which lie along the northern & southern routes of the Peninsula, stopping to enjoy each one at your own pace. On your return towards Athens we also stop at the site of Thermopylae to explore and enter the visitors center which recreates the ancient battle where King Leonidas led the 300 Spartans in 480BC. Stop nearby at one of the local beaches for a swim (in the summer) and for lunch by the sea before your final return.
