Itinerary

HALKIDIKI MAINLAND FULL DAY TOUR FROM THESSALONIKI

Halkidiki mainland tour by SKG BUS. We start our excursion at 9:00 AM by picking you up from you hotel. We pass by Lakes Volvi and Coronia enjoying the great scenery. We may also get a quick stop to picturesque Saint Marina chapel. We drive through ancient oak trees enjoying the scenery and soon we reach Stavros, a seaside village and port where we have a quick stop for coffee or shopping. This is where our mountain pass begins as we follow the narrow scenic road enjoying spectacular views of both the sea and the mountain. Plants, trees, birds, animals and an enormous variety of wildflowers will provide you with a great touring experience.

Our next stop is at Olympiada seaside village which is named after the mother of Alexander the Great. It is a picturesque quiet village well known for the nearby ancient town of Stagira where Olympiada was exiled by King Cassander.

The ancient Stagira is the birthplace of Aristotle, maybe the greatest philosopher ever and teacher of Alexander the Great. Here you may taste fresh mussels and clams (locally produced or fished) and tsipouro along with fresh Greek salads and fish. Or you may taste the traditional Greek fish soup (kakavia) as well as one of the most amazing Greek starters the so called ntolmadakia which is basically rice rolled with vine leaves. Such an amazing fresh and tasty starter.

We continue our drive through trees and wild flowers and just in case you already missed the sea views we may climb down for a while to visit Stratoni, a seaside village with a great, long and sandy beach.

Our next destination is Ouranoupoli (Greek meaning the city of heaven) which is a frontier town to Mount Athos monasteries region. Visiting Mount Athos peninsula is strictly prohibited for women while men need to get a permit. It is a lively seaside town with plenty of seafront fish taverns and souvenir shops.

Once again we head to the mountain and our next stop is at Aristotle theme park at modern Stagira. It is located in a most beautiful area with a marvelous view towards the Gulf of Ierissos and the whole peninsula of Athos. It includes a series of interesting instruments which when used properly will show the phenomena of nature as studied by the great Greek philosopher.

Following the scenic road among high trees and colorful plants we reach the town of Arnea, a place of great history and tradition. Its typical rock build houses and narrow streets represent.

On our way back we pass Agios Prodromos village which is widely known, especially to the locals, for its traditional Greek taverns. Indeed the world known Greek souvlaki is best grilled and served here. Arrival back at Thessaloniki city center around 9:00 PM.
