Fascinating landscapes, emerald water on dreamy shores, Pelion architecture, natural beauties, imposing monasteries and authentic island atmosphere compose the image of Skopelos, one of the greenest islands in Greece since most of its part is covered by a virgin pine forest.
Its beauty inspired even the Hollywood producers who chose to shoot there the movie "Mamma Mia", making the island a worldwide tourist destination!
Skopelos is famous for its wonderful nature and its picturesque paths.
Many travelers combine their vacation with hiking, as the landscapes overlooking the pine forests, the beaches and the picturesque villages, compensate the visitors.
Hikers can choose between interesting hikes.
