I went to Pilion in March 2020. We hiked a group of 205 people from Xania to Makryrachi and Portaria village. We also visited the villag eof Makrinitsa. Amazing place with great architecture. The nature around the mountain is simply amazing. Highly recommended for hikers!

This mountain range is unique in the sense that it provides a view to the sea on both its sides. Its lush green during the spring, summer and early autumn, it has beautiful colors on late October and November, with green, orange and red, and it's wonderfully white with snow in the winter. It's really a great place to visit, with delicious many options for food in the villages, like Makrynitsa, Portaria, Vizitsa, Pinakates, Milies. During the summer, you can stay in some of these villages and visit the sea by car in the mornings (less than 1 hour of driving). Will definitely visit again in the future.

Pelion Peninsula is a place that offers great opportunities for active holidays. Canyoning, biking, hiking, horseback riding, swimming. But if you are inclined to fantasize and read the book The Golden Fleece by Robert Graves all your activities take on a new dimension So for me, Pelion Peninsula is a place I often return to discover something new and magical.

Lovely place to visit for at least one week. Very nice culture and welcoming people. A lot of very nice spots and views overlooking the see and forest. nice trails in the forest. And - best beaches one can imagine. Be aware that driving is a challenge. Roads are narrow with steep curves every 20-50 meters.

Mount Pelion has so many different places to visit. So many opportunities for activities! Wherever you are staying, everything is so close! So don’t miss the opportunity to visit the east side beaches, if you are lucky you might have a “non wavy” day. The west side beaches are almost always calm. Do not miss the southern part of the peninsula, which is less Touristik and also has wonderful peaceful beaches in the gulf side as on the Aegean side. If you are more into winter, the ski resort will most probably impress you with its beautiful sea view to both the Pagasetic gulf and the Aegean Sea. All the villages are beautiful in the winter as well, especially if it is snowing!
