Things to do in Pelion during your stay.
Explore Mount Pelion on foot! The best way to enjoy nature and the peace the mountain offers, with your family and friends. You will be able to visit picturesque villages, admire the great view and learn about the history of the area and the myth of the famous Centaurs, walking under the shade of beech and chestnut trees. Longer routes Milies – Tsagarada: 4 hours or Chania – Portaria: 3 hours
Enjoy kayaking and recharge your batteries, visiting the best kayaking spots of the Pagasitikos gulf. Your daily sea kayaking activities can start either from Volos city (Anauros, NOBA) or, from the well known, wonderful and traditional villages (ports) of the gulf. After taking some important knowledge from our instructors, before getting in the water, we are ready to safely explore the coastline and the small islands of Alatas, Prasouda and Trikeri.
Located just outside the famous village of Milies, de Chirico bridge (steel structure, 42 m high) is the place where we will start our small “flight” from. The name of the bridge was given to honor the Italian engineer Evaristo de Chirico, the designer of the railway track in Pelion. The main feature of the bridge is that the rails do not follow the straight direction of the bridge, but a curved line. After fixing our ropes, it’s time to rappel down the bridge, until the bottom of the small stream named Taxiarchis. After a small break in order to admire nature, we are ready to start our walk and explore this magnificent place.
