Πλήρης Οδηγός για Πεζοπορία στο Πήλιο! 16 διαδρομές & μονοπάτια για να ζήσετε μοναδικές εμπειρίες κάνοντας περιπάτους στα ομορφότερα μονοπάτια του Πηλίου!

Pelion presents an ideal place for hiking. History tells us that mythical gods, Centaurs, giants, nymphs, kings and warriors have walked there. The beauty of Mount Pelion with the rich plantation, the traditional settlements and the breathtaking view of the sea from many places challenge its visitors to explore it.

The “old road network of Pelion”, the path going through the mountain, stretching in 190 km length, was initially created by the merchants of another era. It was built by local constructors and renowned stonework experts from Epirus.

The passer-by walking in them comes across splendid arched bridges and big fountains of exceptional architecture which being combined with the dreamlike landscape offer them an exciting experience.

In the recent few years and through EU financing some of the paths were rebuilt, others restored and distinguished, marked and mapped. Join us to some of them:

General advice for safe hiking

When going hiking, one should wear woollen socks, boots (best if non-skid), thick trousers, long-sleeved shirts or T-shirts, a straw hat or a cloth one in the summer.

Moreover, a bottle of water, some fruit and even some raisins or dry food may prove to be quite necessary for hikers.

We also organize local tours to the Historic fountains of Zagora and the churches and chapels of the area.

The routes described above are indicative. There are more ones we have planned for you, which follow unmapped old paths even more beautiful that only our guide knows. The schedule can be adjusted according to the needs of the participants and, of course, the current weather conditions.

 Οι καταδυτικές μας εκδρομές γίνονται με το 6/μετρο φουσκωτό σκάφος της σχολής μας χωρητικότητας 12 ατόμων ( ή 8 αυτοδυτών με πλήρη εξοπλισμό). Ορμητήριο μας το γραφικό χωριό της Αγίας Κυριακής που βρίσκεται στο νοτιότερο άκρο της χερσονήσου της Μαγνησίας, ακριβώς μπροστά από το Σταυρό, όπως λένε οι ντόπιοι το σημείο που ο Παγασητικός κόλπος συναντά το Αιγαίο πέλαγος.

Από εδώ ξεκινάμε τις καταδυτικές μας εξορμήσεις προς δεκάδες μοναδικούς καταδυτικούς προορισμούς προς τρεις διαφορετικές θάλασσες. Προς τα νησάκια και τις βραχονησίδες του Παγασητικού (Παλαιό Τρίκερι, Μικρά, Πρασούδα, Αλατάς), τη νησίδα Αργυρόνησο και τα ναυάγια του Βόρειου Ευβοϊκού, προς τις ανατολικές αιγαιοπελαγίτικες ακτές του Πηλίου και τα νησάκια Ποντικονήσι και Μυρμηγκονήσια στο Βορειοανατολικό άκρο της Εύβοιας.

Ναυάγια, κάθετοι τοίχοι, σπηλιές, μεσοπέλαγοι ύφαλοι, δάση από γοργονίες, συναντήσεις με μεγάλα θηλαστικά (φώκιες, δελφίνια κλπ.) αποτελούν στόχο των καθημερινών μας εξορμήσεων.

Διευκρινίζουμε ότι οι καταδύσεις δεν πραγματοποιούνται στο Χορευτό Πηλίου (έδρα του ξενοδοχείου μας) αλλά σε σημεία απόστασης περίπου 60 με 90 λεπτά από αυτό.
