Greece - a sun-drenched country with alluring nature
Greece is a real paradise for nature lovers. Most of all, travellers visit the country for the remarkable beaches and islands of the four seas that surround it. You’ll find the Cretan and Libyan Seas south of Greece. The Ionian Sea touches the western coast of the country, including the peninsula Peloponnese, while the eastern of Greece borders the Aegean Sea. There you'll find the beautiful region of Thessaly and its naturalistic Sporades Islands.

The weather is mild and sunny, creating the perfect environment for outdoor adventures. The scenery of Greece doesn’t just end with the sea and beaches. There’s a profusion of remarkable vistas in the mainland and hinterland of the islands as well. Roaring rivers and tranquil lakes, gorgeous waterfalls and wetlands that are full of life, beautiful gorges, and blue caves carved in the waters. There’s an abundance of lush green pastures, gardens, and woodlands, but also mesmerizing dunes found in the Gomati desert. The restless mountains with soaring peaks and impressive rock formations like the Petrino Dasos draw hikers and mountaineers from all over the world.

The North Aegean Islands
Visit the North Aegean Islands and the beautiful Lesbos - green forests blanket the mountains, creating a picture that is worth a thousand words. The island is named the Emerald Island because of its rich flora community. More than half of all land is forested. 11 million olive trees and other fruit trees occupy 40% of the land, while the rest of the woodlands cover 20% and consist of pines, chestnut trees, and oaks. The rest of the vegetation is made of scrubs and grassland, and only the urban areas are not green.
The South Aegean Islands
As for the South Aegean Islands, there you can find Rhodes island and its fairytale ancient city. The Medieval Old Town of the walled city is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The island welcomes around 1,4 million visitors each year, but it used to be worldwide famous in the historical times as well. Back then it was renowned for the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Rhodes lies 363km southeast from the mainland of Greek. It is actually closer to Turkey, with just 18km distance from the country’s southern shore. It’s probably best that you combine your Turkey vacation with your visit to Rhodes. Still, if you decide to visit the island, expect to find spectacular sandy beaches and coves with transparent waters. This makes Rhodes perfect for swimming, snorkeling, diving, or just any water adventures. Wind and kite surfing are best practiced in the southernmost coast of the island - Cape Prasonisi offers ideal wind conditions. The natural beauty of the island continues in the inland with forest-cloaked mountains and pastures with citrus, olive groves, vineyards. Ramble in the countryside and soak in the atmosphere of this idyllic place. Indeed, Rhodes never fails to amaze. And it has to, especially when it’s the birthplace of Apollo, the sun god. At least that’s the truth told in the myths. The South Aegean Sea is home to islands with volcanoes. Only three of the volcanoes have erupted, and the most active of which is centered in the famous Santorini.
