Climbing

Slowly but surely, climbing in Greece has grown in popularity and become really very attractive to outdoor followers and fans. After years – when Kalymnos or Meteora were in the first explosion of recognition - dozens of other beautiful Greek cliffs with immense potential are finally being developed, with increasing emphasis on safe climbing practices. Furthermore, the relatively easy access, adequate infrastructure, stunning surroundings, and more often than not, variety of grades, have made Thessaly and in particular Meteora a more and more popular climbing destination for climbers of all levels.

Archery

Archery is the sport, practice and skill of using a bow to propel arrows. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat. The bow is an ancient weapon. Indications of the use of an arc as a weapon of war in the ancient Greek world have already existed since the early Bronze Age. In the mythology of Pelion we find it in references of war use or for hunting by mythical heroes and the Centaurs. The view of Artemis in the artwork is portrayed as new and beautiful, wearing a long sleeve, but usually short. She holds a bow and a quiver.
