Pelion in General

Pelion Allgemein

Pelion γενικά

In general: Pelion is a peninsula in central Greece. Mountainous ridges, reach beautiful ideal beaches. In ancient times Pelion was considered the home of the Centaurs, mythical creatures half-horse, half-man. The tradition lives on until today where horse-riding is very common in this place.  The views are breathtaking! Gaze from a trail the blue Aegean sea that stretches to the east or the green forests and mountains to the west. Pelion is also located in close proximity to the plains of Thessaly, the biggest agricultural plains of Greece, that hold the impressing rock formations with monasteries on top that are called Meteora and mount Olympus, the highest peak of Greece and home of the ancient gods! The architecture of the villages, with centuries old stone houses, blend perfectly in the landscape. These villages are interconnected with a vast network of centuries old trails, some of them still paved with stones from these times. Other trails though, are modern and were designed considering the MTB rider. The trails run through the villages or even next to an old railroad track, that used to connect these villages with the port of Volos city.  The beaches of Pilion are easy to access and each one has unique beauties and landscape. Pilion is also famous for numerous applications of permaculture, alternative eco-friendly house building and different projects of sustainability. Mild climate awaits the visitor from April to October. A place with warm people, long tradition and fantastic landscape!

Bike activities: For bikers of all abilities, the place offers a variety of possibilities with nature trails, traditional stone trails and also newly built trails, which can be combined to great varied tours. Highlight of the place are the trails around the area of Agios Georgios and Gatzea, that lead to the old railroad track. Offers a variety of dirt roads, rock gardens and flow and technical trails. For a longer stay, we recommend  biking trips on the neighboring mountains of Olympus and Kissavos.

Other outdoor activities: In addition to biking, outdoor fans can also take part in a lot of other activities such as various water sports by the beaches, hiking, sightseeing and horse-riding.
