The Salonica View alternative tourism office organizes a one-day excursion and hikes in the "hidden" paths of Hortiatis, a special route where we will walk through black pine!

A few words about our trip:

Our meeting will be at the antennas of Hortiatis The Salonica View tourism office bears no responsibility for the movement and transport of the participants by car.

Initially, for about 1 km, the path we will follow moves along a road, until we enter a path and face the amazingly beautiful black pine landscape, discovering the unknown beauties of Hortiatis! Going uphill we will see a panoramic view of our beautiful Thessaloniki.

Our route will continue to the refuge where we will have the opportunity to stop for rest, food, coffee, or even a rakomelo by the fireplace (food/drinks not included in the price). We will continue the last part of the hike, in a straight line on the forest road to the point where we started (antennas).
