Pelion: The Mythical Mountainscape

Combining the mystique aura of the mountain and the refreshing breeze of the sea, Pelion is the ultimate mountainscape for all year round holidays. Also known as the mountain of Centaurs, the half-human, half-horse creature from the Greek mythology, Pelion is a verdant holiday realm between the Aegean Sea & the Pagasetic Gulf.


Towering above the gleaming waters of the sea, Pelion is an extraordinary summer resort with endless coves, wondrous beaches, running waters and verdurous landscapes. Water sports adventures, hiking, sailing and fishing excursions are some of the thrilling activities offered during the summer months.
