Hike with us through the dense beech forests of Mountain Pelion, in Greece. Cross small streams, visit a secluded small waterfall and get the chance to swim in the cold waters of a well hidden natural pond!
If you are looking for attractions and things-to-do in Pelion, the guided hiking tour “Lost in the Forest” is an easy and family friendly activity for everyone. Learn more about the local community, the way of life and the history of the area, from your local tour leader, along with stories from the region’s rich mythology. An alternative, active and fun way to experience Pelion’s nature and create unforgettable memories with your family and friends.
Meet with your tour leader at the outskirts of the village “Zagora”, transfer to the starting point of the tour, with a private vehicle (15 minutes drive) and get briefed about the tour. The hike begins high on the mountain, walking on forest road, surrounded by beech trees. After a while we start descending on a footpath through a lush forested area. In the middle of the route, we encounter a small waterfall, where we stop for our first break to enjoy the calming sound of its waters. We keep on descending until we reach a hidden natural pond, where we take our second break. Enjoy the surrounding scenery and take your time to find the courage to enter its freezing waters! We then continue our hike and head towards the finish/meeting point, walking along apple fields and chestnut trees.
Approx. 5 hours (incl. breaks)
