Hiking Trails

Hiking Trails - PelionBeautiful any time of year, Pelion is ideal for many and varied activities. From our base in Aghios Georgios Nilias, you will find recorded paths that provide beautifully hiking trails in forests with chestnut and broadleaf trees that grow beneath one of the highest peaks of Pelion, the Schitzourafli.

This is the starting point for four signposted hiking trails connecting Aghios Georgios - Agriolefkes, Aghios Georgios - Tsagarada, Aghios Georgios - K. Gatzea and Aghios Georgios - Ano Lehonia. Of these, the first two pass through the protected forested area that belongs to the NATURA 2000 Networking Program, with code GR1430001.

 

Hiking Trails - PelionFrom the cobblestone streets of the village to the lush vegetation and springs, you will enjoy an unspoiled natural landscape and those who wish can collect rare herbs. From ancient times Pelion was the mountain of flowers and medicinal herbs. It has been estimated that the flora of Pelion includes at least 1,500 species, more rarely 2 endemic species (soldanella of Pelion, grown in only two locations, near streams) and the centavria of Drakia.
