Greece is a great holiday destination not just in the summertime but also during the winter season. If you choose Greece for your winter holidays you will find great sporting activities waiting for you.
A Line in the Snow
I dare claiming that skiing isn’t exactly the activity that pops up in your mind when someone mentions Greece. Thinking of Greece – there are other colours like blue, green or brown coming to mind, not the white of newfallen snow. Still, in Greece you will find several excellent ski resorts in different locations from Macedonia to Vasilitsa in Epirus. Wild mountain tops covered with soft white snow, wooden chalets situated thousands of meters above sea level, lighted skiing sites during night time with skiers standing out with their colored ski suits, speed and technique: That’s what the ski resorts in Greece are all about!
Skiing in the wild nature of Greece
During wintertime in the Greek mountains you will find large areas of woodland with snow-covered peaks, forest trails and old paths along rivers filled with fast-flowing waters. Walk across the old beautiful stone bridges and have a breathtaking view over the calm lakes.
The biggest ski resorts in Greece you will find on Parnassos (not far from Athens), Kalavryta (Peleponnese), Kammaktsalan, Vasilitsa (Pindus), Tria-Pente Pigadia (near Naousa), Pelion (near Volos) and Mainalo Mountains. You will experience snowy adventures in an all-white setting.
