Spring Holidays in Greece
Spring is a lovely season to visit Greece. Foreigners who come to the country for their spring holidays enjoy the warm temperature, the few crowds and the blossoming nature. March in Greece can be a bit cold, but from April and onwards the temperature gets warmer and in May people start swimming in the sea.
April and May are the months when the Greek islands wake up from hibernation: ferries from Athens to the Greek islands are becoming more regular, hotels, restaurants and souvenir shops gradually open and the first foreign tourists arrive. Spring is also the season when nature in Greece blossoms, with trees becoming greener and flowers opening their petals.
Spring destinations in Greece
Spring holidays can be very active for visitors. The green nature makes hiking a very popular activity in spring in the Greek islands and many regions of the Greek mainland. Old stone footpaths connect mountainous villages, secluded beaches, ancient sites and hilltops with breathtaking view. Many of these footpaths are signposted. Nice place for hiking and spring holidays are Crete island, Pelion, Kefalonia, Corfu and Naxos island.
Spring is also a good season for river sports in Greece. As the snow melts in the Greek mountains, rivers get filled with running water. This is when many mountaineering clubs in Greece organize rafting, kayaking, river trekking and other activities. Best mainland regions for these sports are Zagoria in Epirus, Arcadia in Peloponnese and Evritania in Central Greece.
