4 Mountains In Greece For Your Winter Family Holidays

Many of you are looking into visiting Greece any time other than Summer, to avoid the crowds and the overpricing. And it is indeed a great idea! We love Greece in the Winter, as the weather is mild, we might see some snow but with a gorgeous sunshine, and the guesthouses, chalets and mountain resorts are really unique.

Here are 4 mountain destinations we have had a great time with kids in the winter time!



Zagori Mountain

Zagori is a mountain in Northern Greece, very close to the boarders with Albania. Winters can be tough here and it’s rainly in Autumn and Spring, adding in the charm of the area. Zagori is famous for its picturesque villages, the famous Zagorochoria, all built in the local dark stone and architecture, blending in beautiful with the gorgeous natural scenery. Zagori is also famous for its old stone bridges, river Voidomatis and great activities around it (horse riding, easy hiking, kayaking), byzantine chapels and amazing food.

Karpenissi is the name of the capital of Evritania County, up in the mountains of Pindos. It’s famous for its stunning small villages, for some epic gorge hiking, easy eerie trails, great food and for the fact that the local community has worked hard to create leisure areas ideal for families. There are also activities for kids in theme parks, as well as family friendly guest houses built in safe lands next to Karpenissiotis river.

Taygetos Mountain

Famous for its pyramid peak, its beautiful trails and its proximity to Athens, as well as the beaches of Mani, Taygetos is an easy trip. We loved the small waterfalls, the easy hikes and picnic in the prairies in the summer. But we adore cozying in next to the fireplace, playing board games, reading books and enjoying or favorite Maniot cuisine!

Mainalo Mountain

Mainalo mountain is home to the gorgeous Mountainous Arcadia area or Gortynia. Cute villages, cozy taverns, the eerie Lousios River and its waterfalls and springs, family friendly farms and museums compose the perfect near Athens getaway. In the winter, we love exploring the stone built villages, enjoying good food and driving around the fairy-tale Mountain.
