Mountain Trekking I
If outdoor adventure is at the top of your list, the Tzoumerka mountains are the right place
for you. This small cluster of villages in the beautiful country of Greece is brimming with
contrasts: rugged mountains meet cascading waterfalls, long, sunny days, excellent
temperatures and perfectly blue skies. This stunning mountainous area is the perfect place
for an unforgettable summer adventure.
We begin and end our trip in the lively city of Thessaloniki, a hopping university town one
hour away from the birthplace of Aristotle and named after Alexander the Great’s sister. We
will enjoy great food and a lively night scene. Optional additional free days to enjoy cultural
activities, archaeological visits, culinary adventures and shopping.
