WINTER VACATION IN GREECE?!

                     
WINTER VACATION IN GREECE?!

(Arachova)
   Greece is universally considered ideal for summer vacations with its sandy beaches, crystal clear seas and wonderful sunny days BUT it can also be an exciting winter destination!
(Mt. Parnassos)


    Who would have ever imagined that skiing or snowboarding or even snowmobiling in Greece is quite common activity during winter season!



(Mt. Parnassos)
     As it is mainly a mountainous country (over 2.000 meters - 6.500 ft.) it has a number of ski resorts that attract thousands of skiers during winter.Greece has about 21 ski centers that have their base camps at altitudes of approximately 1500m. and their summits range between 2.200m. and 2.500m. The
slopes range from very steep to flat slopes.

(3-5 Pigadia Ski Resort)
     You can enjoy winter sports, mountain climbing/hiking, rafting and combine them with visits at ancient historical sights nearby, traditional villages, local festivities and of course good food! And last but not least you won’t loose visual contact with the sea! Many of Greece’s ski centers are in less than an hour drive distance to the sea. This combination is unique the world over.
