1 Day trip to the Mushroom Festival!!!


Since our stuff blog is still under construction I thought I would post some information on our activities this week. Autumn is already here and with the winter around the corner we decided to organize some interesting thematic excursion for the locals. So this weekend on the 19th of October we organise an interesting rural excursion to Larisa's village Sklithro and in their Mushroom festival.

So if you are visiting Thessaloniki the weekend of 18th and 19th of October we suggest you to join us in this new way of experiencing rural Greece and Northern Greece. In this excursion you can have the original experience of travelling with Greek people to a rural festival.

Isn't the purpose of tourism to foreign countries to mingle with locals and see the way they live and deal with daily life? What we offer is that exactly, the true tourism experience accompanied with local people of Thessaloniki and the locals of Sklithro village in Larisa.
