"The mountains, the forest and the sea, render men savage; they develop the fierce, but yet do not destroy the human." - Victor Hugo.

95 million years ago during the last age of the Dinosaurs, the Balkan Peninsula rose from the depths of the Tethys Ocean to form modern day Greece. What once was a seabed of Ammonites and corals now stands high above the waves. Towering above the sea stands Mt. Pelion, home of the Centaurs and ancient Myths.

This week Jack & Jenny depart from Skiathos and follow the geolocial journey of central Greece from the bottom of the sea to the highest peaks.
In collaboration with Hellas Canyoning, Bike or Hike and the most trusted Scuba instractor; Marios Zervas, they will ascend from the bottom of the sea to the slopes of one of the most iconic mountains of Greece to wash the salt off your skin in natural pools and waterfalls.

Discover the natural beauty within the gorges of Mt. Pelion, dive into crystal clear waters ride a mountain bike on the most scenic routes along the mountains and paddle your cayak along the wind battered coastlines and sea caves.

The journey's activities are aimed towards beginners, intermediate or advanced Divers and Canyoneers alike. However if you deem yourself an advanced diver you will be required to provide us with the necessary documentation as a proof of your underwater prowess.

SCUBA DIVING IN TRIKERI

For this activity you are going to dive in the " Good luck" wreck site. The site is ideal for beginner or advanced scuba divers alike as it extends from the depth of 6 meters up to 20 meters. "Good Luck" is a motoryacht built in 1917 which ironically sunk in 1975 due to water intake. Despite the crew's best effort to save it, it unfortunately sunk in the shallow waters of the bay. However, it's proximity to the coastline meant that there were no casualties and fortunately for us it sets an ideal diving site with plenty of light and clear waters.
Disclaimer. If you wish to partake in the advanced version of the dive you will be required after your booking to provide us with the necessary certifications as stated in the company's FAQ.

CYCLING

The cycling tour starts at Tzasteni, a natural harbor of unique beauty in South Pelion. You will start with the bikes moving to another natural harbor called Alogoporos at the edge of the Pagasiticos Gulf, just across Trikeri Island. The route will be in asphalt, quiet road and for about 20 kilometers you will enjoy the incredible beauty of the landscape by stopping on wonderful beaches for small breaks.

CANYONING IN MT. PELION

This Adventure will take you at Galanorema Canyon located in the eastern part of Pelion, above Zagora village. The canyon is full of crystal clear lakes and also 5 beautiful waterfalls up to 11m, slides, jumps and wild vegetation.
