Wonderful natural landscapes surrounded by forests full of tall fir and beech trees, gurgling running rivers are part of the canvas you can enjoy if you make the decision to escape to a mountain range. And, of course, if you decide to make a stop at one of our country’s organized ski resorts you can combine moments of adrenaline, play, exploration and relaxation.
The Parnassos ski resort is the largest and most equipped in the country and has been operating continuously since 1976 at an altitude of 1,640 to 2,260 metres. The distance from Athens is about 180 km, which is close to 2 hours’ drive. The Parnassos ski resort has 23 slopes with a total length of 34 km and is a meeting point for Athenians and residents of the surrounding areas, since its chalets and slopes are full of life every weekend in winter. In Parnassos you can have an unforgettable time participating in activities with the whole family and entering slopes for all levels.
The distance that separates Mountainous Corinthia from Athens is only 144 km. The area does not have imposing chalets and the crowds you might expect from a ski resort. Precisely for these reasons it proves to be an ideal destination for a weekend in nature. The mountain of Zireia has a highest peak at 2,374 meters and the ski resort is located at an altitude of 1,500 meters and just 10 kilometers from Trikala, Corinthia. There you will find plenty of options for accommodation and dining. It is one of the newest ski resorts near Athens, opening in 2007. This particular ski resort is the one that appeals most of all to families. There are slopes for adults, both advanced and beginners. You can rent the necessary equipment for the activities you choose. There is the baby slope and the baby lift which is ideal for little ones. For your stay you can choose either the guesthouse “Chelydorea”, “Archontiko Fiamegou”, or the guesthouse “Varnevo”.
