Seasons on Pelion mountain
Pelion mountain is an extremely versatile tourist destination. You may visit it all around the year and still find something unique about it.
- During autumn you will be amazed by the glorious and “royal” way that summer gives up its place to the forthcoming winter time by transforming almost everything on the mountain. This seasons’ succession is strongly evident on the trees’ colors as they gradually let their leaves fall into the paved picturesque villages squares. You will see almost every color from light green to dark brown, red, deep yellow and many more even on a very short area on Pelion mountain surface!
- During winter it is the snow and the ski resort with the amazing view to the Aegean sea!
- On spring is the rejuvenation of the amazing and extremely Pelion’s nature with the greening of trees and squares, the roaming water streams and the smell of thousands of flowers in every turn you take.
- And it is during the summer that Pelion mountain becomes what we here in Greece say ” The perfect combo of mountain and sea” meaning that you can live and feel all the joys the sea and the mountain can give you. Pelion sea and beaches offer you the Greek sun, clean water, amazing color variations, cool temperatures on hot summer days and a way to forget most of your problems while there. The mountain can give the serenity of the green landscape, the breeze of its trees, extremely helpful on extreme heat days, and the traditional look and feel of the mountainous Greek villages.
