This day trip offers the chance to experience a ride on the famous train of Pelion, created in 1895. In this itinerary we can discover details of  one of the most characteristic railway lines in the world (60 cm wide narrow gauge railway).

We depart by bus from Volos or Agios Ioannis to Ano Lechonia. At the station of Ano Lechonia we board on  the train and enjoy the one and a half hour adventure with the so-called “Mountzouris”, meaning in greek " being covered with coal dirt" ( by the colas that used to be the fuel).

Optionally we  can continue by bus to Vizitsa, where we will have a traditional lunch and visit the traditional attractions of villages.

Return to our place  early in the afternoon.
