Where the steep slopes of the Centaurs dive in the Aegean Sea, nature improvises in her own magical canvas the picture perfect villages and the turquoise beaches. Standing on the highest spot of the mountain, you will fill your lungs with deep breaths of mountainous air in the arms of a dense beech forest overlooking the endless blue of the sea. The consecutive hairpin roads glide over the verdant ridges of Pelion through the extensive verdant forests in order to connect even the most remote villages to the city of Volos. In this purely mountainous landscape, the paradox happens out of the blue; behind shadow forest curtains and steep rocky slopes, a redemptive deep blue sea emerges in all its shades and manifestations.The picturesque villages of Pelion acquire an authentic identity in winter with wild characteristics of untamed beauty. From lovely Makrinitsa village that is buried in fog and the snowish slopes of Agriolefkes to the deserted square of Tsagarada village and the cozy kafenia of Lafkos and Neohori, where the elders rest, winter is reserved for a very diffent experience in Pelion. Blizzards break with obsession through Hania village, and, sometimes, abruptly cover Pelion with a white coat of snow. Those gray days when the storms sweep the villages of eastern Pelion, land sky and sea seem to become one, as if winter has allied with the mountain to tryout Pelion’s strenght.However, when the first flowers bloom on the seashore, the colorful carpet tranforms Pelion into a canvas of the Rennaisance period. The spring extravaganza will take your breath away and fill it with scents of herbs and aromatic plants.

The cobblestone squares and the traditional stone houses of Portaria and Makrinitsa complement the landscapes of the Pelion villages with their picturesque identity by overlooking the blueish shadows of Volos city. Pelion is such a blessed place; running waters, spring creeks running through gullies and tumbling from heights into steep waterfalls on the entire peninsula of Pelion seem like they have sprung out of a fairytale.From the botanical gardens of the springs, vegetation is kept lush and exuberant throughout the summer starlighted from the turquoise waters of lovely Pelion. A labyrinthine road slips through the eastern slopes of the legendary mountain unveiling lush landscapes towards the beautiful villages of Eastern Pelion.

From the remote coasts of Mylopotamos, the pebbles of Damouhari and the turquoise cove of Fakistra to the nobility of Zagora, Kissos, Mouresi and Tsagarada villages, nature reveals a splendid natural field masterfully flirting with the mountain and the sea. A wonderful world unveils its mysteries under the sun of the summer transforming Pelion into a natural paradise where even the most discerning travellers will find the shore of their dreams to dive in.

On the craggy slopes of the Centaurs’ mythical mountain, two of the loveliest villages of Pelion, Makrinitsa and Portaria, compete with their picturesque character on which is the most beautiful of all.

Neohori – Argalasti – Lafkos – Milina– Trikeri

Nothing could be left out from Pelion, even Southern Pelion with the picturesqueness of Lafkos, the indented coastline of Milina and the island character of Trikeri. The seaside asphalt road that leads to the southern side of this fairytale has an indented coastline with millions of beaches; from picturesque Agia Kyriaki, beautiful Mavri Petra and verdant Horto to spectacular Afyssos and Lefokastro, Southern Pelion hides millions of mysteries. Our exploration started from lovely Milies to traditional Neohori, a wonderful driving route. Surrounded from the slopes of the Centaurs’ mountain, covered with fog and mist, nature embraces every aspect of this lovely settlement. It is worth mentioning that Neohori is famous for its quarries, from which the famous Pelion slabs and stones are mined, a key ingredient of the traditional Pelion architecture ( Discoverpelio.com , 2016). So, we strolled around the village through its scenic pathways to admire the stone mansions of Pelion architecture as well as Agios Dimitrios Church, the patron saint of the village, an architectural marvel of the 18th century whose interior is decorated with wonderful frescoes from the famous Epirus painter Ioannis Pagonis. A few steps further, we arrived at the lovely square of Neohori with its aged plane trees and its stone fountains, and admired its magnificent views of the endless blue of the Sea extending from the Pagasetic Gulf to the Aegean Sea. Although the weather was foggy and rainy, we very much enjoyed the promenade since it gave a distinct sparkle to our journey. Silver olive groves, perennial plane trees, citrus trees with their fragrant fruits, hundreds of healing herbs, and blossoming bouquets of camellias, gardenias and hydrangeas guide us through the wonderful sceneries of the southern part of Pelion. Upon entering its capital, the village of Argalasti, where the great Greek poet Kostas Varnalis used to teach in Parthenagogeion School, we immediately saw the impressive marble belfry of Agioi Apostoloi Church. Tradition has it that the village’s name | “arga (slow) + elauno (passing)” | was inspired from the story that Jason’s Argo passed from this settlement on their journey to Colchis. Next stop was Lafkos, one of the most authentic villages of Pelion with wonderful views to the seaside village of Milina and the Pagasetic Gulf. Its cobblestoned square with its shady trees and its scenic cobbled alleys with its old stone mansions with their neoclassical influences and its traditional fountains exudes an atmosphere of nobility, since a promenade around the village offers an wonderful experience to understand how life in Pelion used to be in the past. It is well worth visiting the church of Panagia with its wonderful bell tower as well as the Fampeio Museum of Art where you will discover exquisite sculptures from white Pelion marble made by local painter and sculptor Thanassis Fampas. Lafkos Radio Museum “Antonis Tavanis” is a must visit; it is housed in a two floor neoclassical mansion of 1890 showcasing a great collection of rare and valuable radiophones from all over the world, donated by the German philhellene Wilfred Shoeps ( Discoverpelio.com , 2016). Under the foggy atmosphere of the winter, we drove to the seaside village of Milina that radiated feelings of nostalgia and melancholy; the strong waves of the sea, which reached 6 degrees on a Beaufort scale, seem like they were trying to “smash” the cobblestone pavement and, all of the sudden, Pelion initiated these feelings of such a lonely winter. Throughout the coastline from Milina towards Trikeri, a unique driving route worth exploring, the sceneries were so wild and fierce. The olive trees were dangling in accordance with the direction of the wind, the endless blue of the sea was disturbed from the agressiveness of the wind and the hairpin asphalt road was unveiling enthralling sceneries we could have not imagine. From the steep rocks of Pelion peninsula to the sheer slopes of Pelion mountain, the island character of Trikeri stole our hearts; a lovely village with the charm of neighboring Pelion mountain and the charisma of the island serenity overlooking Pagasetic Gulf could be nothing less than spectacular. Hidden behind the mistry air, the labyrinthine road climbed with secussive turns in rather indifferent landscapes, where the horizon was lost. Once an important maritime center and home to famous sponge harvesters, the whitewashed houses, captains mansions and the cobblestone alleys will travel you to the glorious times of the remarkable naval tradition of Trikeri.
