Located in the southeastern part of Thessaly in the center of Greece, this mountain is considered the most beautiful in Greece and is known as the home of the centaurs in ancient Greek mythology. The mountain is also an adventurer’s paradise. The heavily forested mountain shields hikers from the sun as they explore the various trails and stone paths leading to the mountain’s various springs, coves, and sandy beaches. In the cooler months, travelers can play in the snow at the peak of the mountain and swim in the waters of the Aegean Sea in the same day. While hiking, keep a look out for the remains of ancient villages and enjoy the refreshing plums that grow naturally on the mountain.
