Pelion Tours

With its traditional mountain villages, blue flag beaches and rambling forests, the Pelion Peninsula serves up some of Greece’s most unspoiled natural landscapes, and you might even recognize it from the big screen – 2008 hit movie Mamma Mia! was filmed there. Curling south from Volos, the 32km-long peninsula is one of the undisputed highlights of Greece’s Aegean coast, dominated by the rugged Pelion Mountain – the fabled ‘Mountain of the Centaurs’. 

As well as laying claim to some of Greece’s best beaches, the Pelion peninsula offers ample opportunities for outdoor activities, with a network of scenic hiking, biking and horseback riding trails passing through the forests and olive groves, and skiing possible in the winter months. Exploring the villages is another popular pastime – admire the pretty whitewashed houses with their grey slate roofs in Makrinitsa, stroll the idyllic beaches of Tsagarada, or tuck into traditional cuisine in Portaria.

Practical Info

The Pelion Peninsula is located between the Pagasetic Gulf and the Aegean Sea in central Greece.
