Mainland Greece holidays

It may be mainland Greece, but it is far from mainstream. Off the tourist trail from Athens’ classical spots, the meze of mainland Greece holidays includes hiking the peaks of Mount Olympus, bear tracking in the Pindos National Park or hiking and biking from one archaeological site to another in the Peloponnese, or cove to cove in Messinia or Laconia. Where, you ask yourself? Exactly. Greece is an infinitesimal odyssey.

Brown bear tracking in Northern Greece
Memorable parts? Seeing a brown bear was the highlight of the holiday but this was definitely the icing on the cake. The friendly people, wonderful mountain scenery, incredible views, amazing walks, butterflies, orchids and peace and quiet made the holiday memorable at all times. Tips? Be prepared to do plenty of walking over rough and rocky ground, possibly in high temperatures. Enjoy the local people, food, culture and scenery as much as possible. Don't expect to find bears, just... (more)Liz Pitt

Greece self drive holiday, Peloponnese beaches
Memorable parts? The entire 21 day trip was fantastic. Upon the agent's advice we went to the Mani and certainly enjoyed the interesting castle houses, as well as the landscape and uncrowded sightseeing. Also, Nafplio was probably our favorite town with so many interesting sites nearby as well as the beaches and natural beauty. We could have stayed there longer. Driving Greece is the way to go. Get out of Athens and see the small villages especially in the Peloponnese. June was the perfect... (more)Sarah Turner

Greece cycling holiday, archaeology tour
Cycling through quiet countryside and seeing rural life, miles of apple, orange and olive trees, sheep and goats grazing, beehives everywhere, wild flowers, birds, lots of opportunities for sitting and drawing or dreaming. (more)Fiona Eccles
Excellent- marvellous landscape, lots to see, good bicycle rides, meeting some special people, smooth service, many moving conversations and the pleasure of Greek life. (more)Helen Wells
Excellent. Good hotels, reasonably priced food, well maintained cycles (The best cycles we have ever hired). The sites of interest on our journey were better and better everyday. The holiday operator Christos was very knowledgeable and took us on a mini tour of The Corinthian Canal on our way back to the airport as a bonus on his own initiative. (more)Christine Mitchell
From €698 - €728 excluding flights
Laconia cycling holiday in Greece
Would highly recommend, this was our eleventh biking trip around Europe, we go same time each year, the first week in May, the group (seven mates) have rated this in the top three. (more)martin mitchell
Good fun, we felt we were well off the beaten tourist track at times. Scenery impressive. (more)Hilary Thomas
Everything about the trip was excellent. The operator has done meticulous research to map out the cycling routes and provides directions that are informative and easy to follow. The equipment provided - the bike and the GPS - were top notch. (more)Andrew Wallace
From €735 excluding flights
Peloponnese family activity holiday in Greece
It was lovely and authentic, not mobbed with foreign tourists, we felt we got to meet local people in their setting. Fabulous part of Greece with so much to see and do. Tripoli is not a tourist destination, which was nice in some ways but we stayed there a little long, the hotel could do with a pool, could be nice to also have a couple of nights elsewhere. (more)Julie Dickerson
Absolutely wonderful. Every day was different, but wonderful. We really enjoyed the scenery, the food, the people and the activities. (more)Angela Terrill
Fantastic holiday. Will certainly go there again. We spend the following week in Creta and enjoyed beaches and diving. Will have to there again to see other Greek wonders, including vineyard and olives trees. (more)Celine Bergeron

It was an absolutely fabulous holiday, everything and more than expected. The level of yoga teaching was exemplary. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. (more)Catherine Windross
Very high quality yoga instruction, sympathetic to all levels of experience. Very relaxing to be so close to the sea. (more)Jo Nicholl
From £790 excluding flights
Messinia cycling holiday in Greece
Memorable parts? Visiting Koroni, Methoni and Pylos - beautiful, historic seaside towns. Tips? You need to be pretty fit as there is a lot of uphill cycling! The last two days were fairly easy going as the coastal road was flat, but the first few days were very hilly and one day especially, we cycled up a mountain and down the other side. Local benefits? Cycling is always environmentally friendly and the local people seemed pleased to cater for tourists in what is a very... (more)Alison Whyte

Northern Greece wildlife conservation tour
Memorable parts? Going on a walk with the conservationists up the various mountains and then trying out Greek drinks such as their coffee and "Mountain tea" that was made from local plants. Tips? To know what the weather is when they go, so they can decide if they want to be there during hot weather or somewhat cooler. Local benefits? Not directly us being on the trip, however the conservations as a whole are doing really good work preventing the death of bears while still... (more)Ruairi Benn
