Home to the tallest mountain in Greece, the region of Thessaly boasts two well-developed ski resorts. Vastly different from other parts of the country that draw tourists with their beaches and ancient ruins, Thessaly offers diverse landscapes that include vast plains, deep lakes, and soaring mountain peaks. The Sporades islands complete the Thessalian landscape, providing vacationers with access to sun-drenched coastlines and tiny settlements preserving an age-old way of life long lost on the mainland.
