Stomio

Beside the Pinios Delta, in the Thermaikos Gulf, we find Stomio, a summer resort for the people of Larissa that combines both lush vegetation and abundant water.

Tempi

The suspension bridge of Tempi leads the visitors of this picturesque valley to the country church of Agia Paraskevi, which welcomes hundreds of worshippers everyday. The imposing beauty of the setting alternates each season throughout the year.

Enipeas Gorge

The Enipeas canyon, the largest of mount Olympus, combines imposing rocks with spring tides and woods.
The Enipeas riverbed carries abundant water throughout the year. According to the ancient Greeks, the Pimpleids muses use to live in its bed and on its woody sides. They were named after the town of Pimpleia, which the archaeologists situate at the beginning of the gorge.

Gorge of Orlia

Orlias Canyon is the paradise of Olympus. The road route is short and easy, starting from Dion and leading to the chapel of Agios Konstantinos, which is where the hiking through the canyon begins. Amidst the luscious vegetation, wonderful waterfalls cascade from the slopes, forming pulpits with crystalline waters gliding amidst the rocks, making this a perfect opportunity for leaping and frolicking in the water, not to mention for shooting one-of-a-kind photos! Towards the midst of the canyon, the stunning 20-meter-high “Red Rock” waterfall is an awesome sight of unearthly beauty.

Valley of Tempi

Even ancient Greek Gods were taken aback by its beauty. Between Mount Olympus and Kissavos, with River Pineios flowing through, the Vale of Tempe, which is 10km long, is an ode to the Mediterranean nature and it is easily accessible by car. Walking down the footbridge you will reach the waters of Pineios, just before the river empties them in the Aegean Sea. Cool off under the shadows of the riverside forest, which is full of plane, elm and willow trees, discover the beautiful flowers growing within the rocks of the canyon and watch rare bird species finding refugee in the dense vegetation. There is, also, the chapel of Agia Paraskevi and the cave with the holly water spring, both of which make Tempe a popular place for religious pilgrimage.
