Environment, Nature

Pelion is a destination which boasts a magnificent natural environment, with wonders which prove the symbiosis of man and nature. Plane trees which have stood for centuries, in some cases even a thousand years, are to be found in most village squares.

The wild forests of chestnut and beech trees are also a common sight in the region of Pelion despite the slight deterioration of the fauna caused by the building of new houses.

A wide variety of wild animals and birds still exist in Pelion, for example foxes, ferrets, porcupines, wild boars, hawks and eagles.

The lush nature of the region is an important financial and developmental factor for Pelion, a foundation for tourism and also ecotourism, which is beginning to gain significant ground. Bird and animal watching, along with the cultivation of herbs are activities which are becoming more and more popular.
