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.
