On the east side of Greece is the Pelion peninsula, which owes its name to the high mountain in the area: Pelion. This mountain rises impressively and greens to the northeast of Volos between Pagastikos Gulf and the Aegean Sea. During the winter months, when often the mountain is covered in snow, skiing lovers can visit a popular ski resort, Agriolefkes or better known as Hania. Activities such as horse riding, mountain biking, mountaineering, scuba diving, sailing, and fishing will convince even the most demanding visitor.

Perhaps the most special thing about Pelion is the unique architecture of the houses in its twenty-four picturesque villages. The houses are, as it were, folk art and are actually architectural museums. These typical houses are built in towers and consist of three floors. Some of these houses are now turned into museums, so you can take a look inside.

Pelion’s beautiful nature and unique locations attract tourists all year round. Its densely forested mountains, peaceful valleys, and fertile plains offer a remarkable experience to every visitor.
