Summer: All the roads lead to the beach
Many people may combine summer with islands, but Volos is also a popular summer destination. If you don't want to move away from Volos, you can go to the city beach. If there's too much crowding for your taste, you can head your car towards Pelion, and find along the way many beaches with crystal clear waters, such as Mylopotamos. You can also rent one of the boats that undertake and transport small groups to hidden beaches that are not accessible from the land. If your vacation in Volos lasts several days, be sure to plan a day trip to Sporades. Alonissos, Skopelos and Skiathos are located near Volos and have some of the most impressive and unique beaches in Greece!
Autumn: Little train ride and nature walks
The nature of Magnesia is very charming in autumn. Take advantage of your vacation and walk among beautiful landscapes and lush trees. The ride on the famous train is also very beautiful, as it is considered a cultural emblem of the area. It starts daily from Volos and goes to Milies, passing through incredible natural landscapes. Through the route, you will see all the important natural sights and technical achievements of the 20th century, during which Volos flourished industrially and economically. The autumn months are ideal for this experience, as the fallen leaves cover all of nature. When you arrive in Milies, you will have plenty of time to explore the streets of the village, eat in the traditional taverns and buy handmade souvenirs, before the train brings you back to Volos.
Spring: Stroll with the Argonauts
One of the main avenues of Volos that surrounds its port, was named after the legendary Argonauts. In the spring, when the weather gets sweeter, you can take a walk by the sea and wander around the boats and vessels. You will also have the opportunity to see an impressive representation of the mythical ship, the Argo, built there as a symbol of the great tradition of Volos in shipbuilding. The area still has extensive bike paths, so you can take the same bike ride and combine it with a little exercise!
Winter: Skiing for everyone
Pelion ski center is one of the first in Greece and is easily accessible from Volos by car or by bus. With a height of 1500 meters and 7 slopes of different levels of difficulty, it promises moments of unforgettable fun in the idyllic snow for the whole family! If you are a beginner, you have the opportunity to take lessons and reward yourself and your children with a hot chocolate in the chalet. After all, what could be more relaxing than gazing at the Pagasitic Gulf and the Aegean from the top of a mountain?
