Long Pelion Trail
The peninsula of Magnisia ends like a fish hook at Cape Trikeri. This rough tip is the most majestic mountain landscape in the entire region of Mt Pelion. The barebone of the cape is a craggy, rocky ridge covered with thorny fragrant bushes and it is called Mt Tisseon. So, Long Pelion Trail keeps its best part for the very last day, offering a demanding route, yet a joy for experienced hiker.
Climb Mt Tisseon slopes following a well defined trail and walk along the ridge on a challenging rocky terrain. Despite the difficulties of walking on the large and irregular blocks, on could enjoy a strikingly beautiful view to the wild beaches of Mt Pelion, to Pagasitikos Gulf and even to the Aegean Sea.
