“A stunning & unforgettable experience in a Greece that we never knew existed...


...we have been to Greece at least a dozen times over the last 3 decades, and have just returned from 6 glorious weeks there. Our 9 days walking in the Pelion with Mark was the highlight of our trip. Mark introduced us to the contrasting vistas of forests, valleys, rivers, hills and ocean, crafting itineraries that surprised, excited and challenged us”

A walking holiday with a difference

Explore and enjoy the historic paths of Mount Pelion with your experienced guide Mark Taplin. Drink in the atmosphere, savour the sights and sounds, and learn about this magical and mythical corner of mainland Greece.

“This was an amazing walk, and it was excellent to know that I had explored one of the least-travelled paths in Pelion to see one of the most amazing sites in Pelion” (Jeremy Zaks, Queens New York, 2009)

The walks

Based in the beautiful village of Kissos, situated on the eastern flank of the mountain overlooking the sparkling Aegean Sea, the six-day itinerary will take you on a varied programme of guided full-day walks ranging from rugged coast to forest-clad peaks - through olive groves and fruit orchards into dense chestnut and beech woods - down to some of the finest beaches in Greece.

Alternative itineraries - more challenging or more relaxed - can be tailored to requests and abilities of particular groups.

“Over the week Mark somehow managed to talk to everyone, in our six person group, every day. We left with a feeling that he appreciated us individually and that our journey mattered”
