Descent from the Pelion peaks

Inquire Booking

Hiking on Pelion`s mountain peaks...

This route has a length of 8.5km and an altitude difference (up or down) of 550m. It is very relaxing, especially going downhill. It passes through some locations with very dense vegetation, and others with spectacular views of the Pagasitikos Gulf and Volos. At several spots along the route there are mountain springs where you can stop for a drink of water. The path usually gets narrower during the year as it becomes overgrown by vegetation, and hikers need to be a little more careful.
