09 Sep GREEK DESTINATIONS THAT ARE STILL SAVE TO VISIT
The Greek islands are currently code orange, until the conditions improve. Have you booked a trip to one of the Greek islands in the near future and are you disappointed that this trip cannot continue? No worries!
Rebook your trip and enjoy the Greek good life. Here are some ideas for mainland and Peloponnese destinations that have the yellow code and are save to visit.
THE PENINSULA OF THE PELOPONNESOS
You fly from Schiphol in 3 hours directly to the olive paradise Kalamata. The perfect start to your holiday on the largest peninsula in Greece. What can you experience in the Peloponnese?
From crazy cycling tours around Kalamata, a walk through the fairytale fortified town of Monemvasia to a trip back in time in the city of Olympia, where the Olympic Games started. And from relaxing on one of the wonderful beaches in Mani, to rafting on the Lousios river in Arcadia and the multi-day walking route: the Menalon Trail.
THE CHALKIDIKI PENINSULA
Fly directly to Thessaloniki and travel to paradise in 40 minutes: the Chalkidiki peninsula. This is the perfect combination between unspoiled landscapes, beaches with an impressive sea color and adventure spread over three headlands: Kassandra, Sithonia and Pro-Athos.
ADMIRE THE NATURAL CLEAN IN EPIRUS
In the far north of Greece you will find the region of Epirus. A destination with impressive nature, authentic Greek villages and where you can enjoy a diverse holiday. Fly directly to Aktion airport, from where you can reach the colourful town with a lovely beach: Parga in no time. You can also visit one of our best hidden gems; Perdika. This village is small but offers two amazing beaches; Karavostatie and Arilla. During the evening, Perdika comes to live with many restaurants and cafés. Or go sailing in Sivota, hike from city to city in the Pindos Mountains or take a boat across the lake of the bustling city of Ioannina.
CITY & NATURE: THESSALONIKI, VOLOS, METEORA
Fly straight to vibrant and multicultural Thessaloniki. The city known for its great cuisine and where you can cycle along the boulevard. Then travel on to the port city of Volos, where you can enjoy mezes (small dishes) and Tsipouro (local liqueur) in cozy tsipouradikas. Secondly, ravel on to Meteora. These gigantic rocks topped with monasteries seem to be straight out of a sci-fi movie. Here you can go on amazing hikes! And end your trip again in Thessaloniki.
