“Trekking Hellas” looks to expand to Pelion with Annual Meeting at Aglaida Hotel & Apartments in Tsagarada

The premier Greek outdoor activity provider, “Trekking Hellas”, is actively looking to expand its operations to the region of Pelion.

The region offers a rich diversity of outdoor activities for travellers including hiking, skiing, horseback riding, and water sports and Trekking Hellas already offers tailor-made trips in Pelion upon request.

The company held its annual meeting Jan. 20 – 22, 2017 at Aglaida Hotel & Apartments in Tsagarada, Pelion, Magnesia, an Affiliate Member Hotel of “Spyrou Philoxenia”. During the annual meeting, the team hiked on the “Kalderimi” or stone paved donkey paths from the hotel to the beach at Damouchari. This is one of the many trails that exist in the region which were created in the 18th century as the main transportation network at that time.

The services and expertise of “Trekking Hellas” were called in again on Jan. 27 -29 for the 2nd Anniversary Press Trip of “Travel Bloggers Greece” to Pelion, organized by “Spyrou Philoxenia”. Representatives from “Trekking Hellas” offered an informative briefing followed by a hike on the stone paths. The press trip helped to highlight the activities available as well as to showcase the region as a destination for holidays throughout the year.

“As a hotel management company, we are actively working on destination marketing by highlighting the points of special interests and activities available in the regions of our Affiliate Member Hotels”, stated John Grigoras, Deputy Manager Sales & Marketing, Spyrou Philoxenia. “We are excited to work with “Trekking Hellas” which is a leader in outdoor activities covering 12 regions throughout Greece and growing”, he added. “It is a professional organization offering outstanding services which helps provide unforgettable holiday experiences”, he ended.

“Trekking Hellas is always searching for new, interesting areas for outdoor activities, in order to grow and expand. We currently consist of 12 members, 12 local companies in 12 of the most amazing areas for outdoor experiences in the country” says Stefanos Sidiropoulos, Deputy CEO of Trekking Hellas. “Specifically in Pelion area, we are looking for a new, local, outdoor activities professional with an exciting plan, who will bring out the area, just like everyone else in our active family.”

Region of Pelion goes Viral from “Travel Bloggers Greece” Press Trip arranged by Hotel Management Company, “Spyrou Philoxenia”

The region of Pelion received “Viral” exposure from “Travel Bloggers Greece” following their Press Trip Jan. 27 – 29, 2017, arranged by Hotel Management Company “Spyrou Philoxenia.”

The trip’s mission was to showcase Pelion’s richness in natural beauty, cultural heritage, local traditions, outdoor activities, cuisine, and warm hospitality and reveal why it is Greece’s “hidden gem”. Spyrou Philoxenia created the hashtag #DestinationPelion where viewers can follow the journey on social media networks including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

“Spyrou Philoxenia is keen on working with travel bloggers as we understand their impact on travelers’ holiday decision making” stated John Grigoras, Deputy Manager, Sales & Marketing, Spyrou Philoxenia. “Our company’s goal is to create life-long memories for our guests through authentic experiences coupled with professional services and select accommodations at our Affiliate Member hotels. After meeting the founders of Travel Bloggers Greece at the World Travel Market in London and learning about their upcoming Anniversary, I suggested Pelion without hesitation as the ideal destination. We were able to arrange a wonderful collaboration between private business such as Trekking Hellas and Les Hirondelles, institutions such as the Hotel Owners Association of Magnesia, and the public sector in the form of the Prefectural Units of Magnesia and Sporades Islands, in what resulted to be a very memorable experience. Travel Bloggers Greece is made of very professional bloggers and interest in Pelion has already started showing from the trip on social media”, he ended.

"As travel bloggers we love promoting amazing destinations, like Pelion, with authenticity and local insight. Working with Spyrou Philoxenia made that possible," said Elena Sergeeva, co-founder of TBG. “Our members look forward to blogging about their first hand experiences exploring this special region of Greece. “Traveling to Pelion as part of our two-year anniversary was a special experience,” said Marissa Tejada, co-founder of TBG. "By working closely with experienced hotel management company Spyrou Philoxenia, we have a wonderful opportunity to share the unique beauty, hospitality and gastronomy of Pelion through quality digital content and social media channels.”

As this winter brought a good amount of snow fall, the bloggers were able to experience what the region has to offer visitors all throughout the year. Hosted at Aglaida Hotel & Apartments in Tsagarada during their stay in Pelion, the first day began with an unforgettable hike to the beach in the village of Damouchari by representatives from Trekking Hellas. The bloggers were then taken by bus through the village of Agios Ioannis to the historic village of Zagora where they had the opportunity to photograph the picturesque square and enjoy mouth-watering local delicacies at a traditional local restaurant. The trip continued to the ski resort in the village of Chania which produced photos of the snow-covered mountain overlooking the Aegean Sea. The group then headed to Manthos Hotel Resort & Spa to warm up with a coffee break and an opportunity for the traditional cutting of their Vasilopita (Saint Basil's Cake).

The second day focused on the south side of Pelion starting off with a visit to the village of Vizitsa where the bloggers enjoyed traditional hand-made spoon sweets at the Women's Cooperative followed by a stop at the historic and unique Church of Archangels in Milies. En-route to Volos, the trip passed through the seaside villages of Kala Nera and Afisso including a stop at the Ano Lechonia train station for pictures with the famous “Moutzouris” train of Pelion. After enjoying Tsipouro and mezedes in Volos, the trip continued to the village of Makrinitsa and ended with dinner at Kritsa in the village of Portaria.

Additional photos and videos from the trip can be found on Spyrou Philoxenia’s Facebook and Instagram page, Travel Bloggers Greece’s Facebook page and on the bloggers’ individual blogs.      

Spyrou Philoxenia’s presence in Pelion currently includes 4 hotels with more being announced shortly. Currently operating 7 properties on the island of Skopelos in addition to managing reservations and sales for additional properties there, the company is expanding its roster with new partnerships being announced throughout Greece.
