GREECE: A PASSION FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Exploring the hiking trails of Mount Olympus
Whether you want to conquer the home of the gods or gently hike through divine nature, Mt Olympus stands ready to greet you. It’s not for nothing that the ancient Greeks chose Mt Olympus as the seat of the 12 gods. Greece’s highest point has always attracted a sense of awe – as much for its rich wildlife as the mystery of its ravines, caves, plateaus and mist-covered peaks.
Hiking the spectacular Samaria Gorge in Chania
Crossing the Samaria Gorge takes you through some of the most magical scenery in Europe, as well as abandoned villages and other historical highlights, and allows you to get close to the rich wildlife of Crete’s White Mountains National Park.
Water Sports on Mykonos
The beautiful island of Mykonos is renowned for its quaint whitewashed houses, golden beaches and numerous little cafes and restaurants – but the island is also an excellent destination for water sports enthusiasts. You will find reputable dive centres based on Paradise and Psarou Beaches and most of the major beaches on the island offer sports such as para-sailing and water-skiing.
Horse Riding in Pertouli
Horse lovers considering holidays to Greece may want to head to the pretty mountainous village of Pertouli, perched among the peaks and ravines of Trikala in central Greece. Here you can enjoy scenic hacks through the surrounding countryside on a variety of trails.
Windsurfing and kitesurfing
In Rhodes, Greece there are many opportunities to enjoy thrilling sports activities and fascinating local culture. Rhodes is one of the best windsurfing and kitesurfing destinations in Greece, with its famous Meltem from the Aegean Sea that blows from the north to the south almost every day in peak season from May to October.
