Head out from Skiathos Island and follow the geological journey of Central Greece from the bottom of the sea to the highest peaks. Some 95 million years ago during the last age of the Dinosaurs, the Balkan Peninsula rose from the depths of the Tethys Ocean to form modern day Greece. What once was a seabed of Ammonites and corals now stands high above the waves. Towering above the sea stands Mt. Pelion, home of the Centaurs and ancient Myths.
In collaboration with Hellas Canyoning, Bike or Hike and our most trusted Scuba instructor, Marios Zervas, we ascend from the bottom of the sea to the slopes of one of the most iconic mountains of Greece to wash the salt off our skin in natural pools and waterfalls.
Discover the natural beauty within the gorges of Mt. Pelion, dive into crystal clear waters. ride a mountain bike on the most scenic routes along the mountains and paddle your kayak along the wind battered coastlines and sea caves.
The journey’s activities are aimed towards beginners, intermediate or advanced Divers and Canyoneers alike. However, if you deem yourself an advanced diver you will be required to provide us with the necessary documentation as a proof of your underwater prowess.
SCUBA DIVING IN TRIKERI
For this activity we are going to dive in the ” Good luck” wreck site. The site is ideal for beginner or advanced scuba divers alike as it extends from the depth of 6 meters up to 20 meters. “Good Luck” is a motoryacht built in 1917 which ironically sunk in 1975 due to water intake. Despite the crew’s best effort to save it, it unfortunately sunk in the shallow waters of the bay. However, its proximity to the coastline meant that there were no casualties and fortunately for us it sets an ideal diving site with plenty of light and clear waters.
Disclaimer: If you wish to partake in the advanced version of the dive you will be required after your booking to provide us with the necessary certifications.
Our cycling tour starts at Tzasteni, a natural harbor of unique beauty in South Pelion. We will start with our bikes, moving to another natural harbor called Alogoporos at the edge of the Pagasiticos Gulf, just across Trikeri Island. Our route will be on a quiet asphalted road for about 20 kilometers, as we enjoy the incredible beauty of the landscape and stop by wonderful beaches for small breaks.
