The World In One Country
Majestic mountains, awe-inspiring gorges, challenging rivers, tranquil lakes and forests, stunning coastlines… Greece is a miniature of the world – offering an astounding array of landscapes and micro climates in a comparatively small geographical area. Every region of the country boasts a wealth of history as well as its own unique charm, customs and delicacies. The dress, music, cuisine and customs of Greece have been influenced over the centuries by the multitudes of conquerors, traders and finally tourists to pass through. You will be surprised however to discover that in more remote areas there are still communities that observe traditions and customs thousands of years old!
Many believe that Greece is nothing but old stones and beaches, an unfortunate misconception. Every season offers its own unique cornucopia of flavours and aromas, an ever-changing palette of colours and textures, as well as a lively selection of festive activities and celebrations. Greece is one of the few countries in the world where you can enjoy 18 holes of golf, skiing and sailing all in the same day! The ecological diversity to be discovered is also unrivaled, offering unique opportunities to view rare plant and animal species in their natural habitats. Whether you are a lover of history, a bon viveur, a naturalist, an adrenalin junky, a party animal or little of all the above you will find just what you are looking for in Greece!
Greece may be famous for sun and fun but for the savvy traveler this comparatively tiny country offers immeasurable surprises! The autumn brings harvest festivals, celebrating olive and wine production. The distillation of local spirits like Raki/Chipero/Chikoudia and Ouzo are big occasions always accompanied by traditional music and dancing and local delicacies. Late winter and early spring bring the carnival with customs passed down from fertility rites of antiquity followed by the Passions of Christ. Every 1st of May has a double significance being both Labor Day and a celebration of new life and hope.
The best way to make sure that you make the most of a visit to any new destination is to get as much information as possible before you travel. It is important to choose a reputable Destination Management Company with the local knowledge to point you in the right direction, combining practical information and assistance with personal attention to detail. An experienced travel consultant will be able to assist you in creating your dream adventure in the land of myths and legends!
