Thessaly: outdoor adventures and ancient history await

The region of Thessaly in Greece might not get as much recognition or attention as the capital or the sun-soaked islands, but don't let that discourage you. It occupies a vast region towards the north of the country, stretching from the Aegean Sea through the fertile plains to the towering mountains of Olympus and Kissavos. This varied topography provides countless platforms for outdoor activities from trail hiking to sea fishing. Alternatively, you can discover Greece's rich history at the region's museums, ruins and the UNESCO World Heritage Meteora monasteries that adorn the lofty mountain peaks.

Things to do

Fabled monasteries in Thessaly

Greece has a long and fascinating history and the region of Thessaly is no exception. The Archaeological Museum of Volos is home to an exquisite collection of archaeological finds discovered in the 20th century. Alternatively, the Natural History Museum of Meteora is small but packed with wildlife exhibits. Undoubtedly though, the highlights near your Thessaly vacation rental are the 6 Meteora monasteries that perch atop towering sandstone monoliths above the Pineios River. The impressive structures are still home to dozens of monks and nuns who live and work in the fabled religious buildings.

Activities

Thrill-seekers take note of Thessaly

It would be far easier to list what adventure activities you can't do than ones you can. Thrill-seekers have long looked to Thessaly to get their kicks, whether it's powdering their hands to climb up the challenging rock faces, hopping aboard rafts to paddle down the exciting white-water rapids, or taking to the skies on paragliders. If you've packed your walking boots, you won't be disappointed by the winding mountain trails, nor the views you'll be rewarded by as you stomp along them. Alternatively, you can dive into one of the wineries to taste some of Greece's best reds and whites.

Weather

Sizzling summers in Thessaly

June to August sees Greece's peak season, with the whole country being soaked in hot Mediterranean sunshine and temperatures that often top the high 80s. The sizzling heat makes doing anything other than working on your tan on the beach or cooling off in the sea a little troublesome. If you're looking to hit the mountain trails, you'd be better off scoring a Thessaly vacation rental during the spring or fall, when the climate is more agreeable. Winter is the country's low season, but don't discount it. The weather is typically mild and you can bag rock bottom deals on rentals.

Natural features

Canyons, raging rivers and swathes of woodland in Thessaly

The landscapes of deep canyons cut by raging rivers, swathes of fir forest and ragged peaks are home to some of Europe's most fascinating wildlife. You'd need an encyclopaedia-sized book to list every species you might spot near your Thessaly vacation rental, but highlights include catching a glimpse of ambling bears, wild boar rustling around the chestnut trees and shy deer among other mountain critters. If you happen to be staying nearby at night, you may very well hear the howl of wolves or the hoot of owls emanating from the trees.
