Action-Packed Activities For Children and Teenagers
In a world where kids are hooked on their TV’s, ipads, and online games it’s great to be reminded of the benefits of action-packed outdoor games. Outdoor activities allow children to let off steam, stay fit, and socialize with their peers! In fact, it is proven that playing outdoors increases vitamin D levels, reduces stress, helps concentration, improves physical fitness, and boosts the immune system.
Here are 3 of our favourite recreational spots in Athens, we hope you and your kids will love them too!

IOVOP Riding Club

The Pony Club at IOVOP is the first riding school in Greece exclusively for children from 4 to 8 years old. Preschool age is the ideal time to start learning how to ride a horse, and using ponies for children’s riding lessons is completely safe and effective. Horse riding is a fun recreational activity for kids, but it also offers many intrinsic benefits such as improving balance and motor coordination and developing self-confidence and self-assurance.
