Best Winter Escapes In Greece
Many people think of Greece as just a summer destination, but with its hidden treasures and diverse winter scenery, Greece can surprise anyone! Here are a few of the best places to visit during the winter.

Lake Plastira & Agrafa – Thessaly

Lake Plastira is probably the most scenic lake in Greece with exquisite surroundings, virgin nature, mountain villages, and fine monasteries and churches. You can limit your trip to the tour of Lake Plastira, however if you are in the mood for an adventure and have a hardy car or SUV it is definitively worth wandering through the rough dirt-roads of Western Agrafa.

Kalavryta - Peloponnese

Known as a fashionable place in the winter months, visitors come from mostly Athens or Patras to enjoy a fun weekend at the ski resort. The natural scenery and old monasteries are also fun for all ages.

Zagorohoria - Epirus

This area never fails to awe its visitor with its majestic natural beauty, pine and fir forests, crystalline streams, and stunning scenery. Visitors can also see arched stone bridges, imposing mansions, and lovely old churches.
