Thessaly & Sporades
Thessaly and the Sporades Islands are lesser-known areas in Greece that offer a stunning combination of natural beauty, cultural heritage, and eco-friendly outdoor activities. Explore the majestic mountains of Thessaly, where you can hike, bike, or ski in the pristine forests and meadows. Visit the ancient monasteries of Meteora, perched on towering rock formations. These monasteries date back to the 14th century and are considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the villages of Pelion and its cobblestone hiking paths called Kalderimia. Head to the Sporades islands, where you can enjoy the crystal-clear waters and sandy beaches of the Aegean Sea by joining a boat tour to see the dolphins and seals that inhabit the National Marine Park of Alonissos. This park is the largest marine protected area in Europe and hosts a rich biodiversity of marine life. The villages of Skopelos are also noteworthy, as the island had retained its authentic flavor. This region is truly worth discovering!
