The Salonica View alternative tourism office organizes a special one-day trip to the blooming Peonies of Krasta and a picnic at the Mr-Yiannis Estate.

A few words about our excursion:

Our trip will have the destination of the village of Giannakochori Imathia, at a distance of about one hour and forty minutes from Thessaloniki. Our excursion will be special as it will include a hike (8 km round trip) so that we can admire the beautiful flowering of the Peonia. Peony is a particularly beautiful wildflower found in the Greek countryside and in general in the Mediterranean. Peonies have impressively large flowers with a diameter exceeding 10 cm, usually red white or pink. They have a height of 70-80 cm and large palmate leaves. They grow at intermediate or high altitudes and their flowering period lasts all spring.

Then we will have the opportunity to participate in a very springtime activity, the picnic loved by all of us in the beautiful vineyard of Mr-Yiannis Estate. First, there will be a guided tour of the winery premises as well as a long walk in the vineyard so that we can see up close the natural environment of the vineyard, the lake and the tower, a trademark of the winery. Then there will be a picnic in the vineyard of the Estate which will include for two people individual bowls with: seasonal salad, cheeses, meatballs, sandwiches, sweets, bottled water, 2 glass wine glasses and 1 bottle of wine choice between: Samaropetra (white) or Acacias (pink) or Fallen oak (red).
