High mountains, pine tree forests and picturesque villages shape the scenery of Halkidiki’s mainland. The region’s capital, Polygyros, build in the Macedonian architectural style, is located on the slopes of Mountain Holomontas (1165m).
Mountain Holomontas is justifiably the area’s main attraction. Its significant ecosystem value led to its declaration as a Special Protection Area and Site of Community Importance, a part of the European Ecological Network “Natura 2000”.
Apart from that, mountain Holomontas is also a source of alternative tourism opportunities as well as a place of education about ecology. Special walking paths, horse riding trails, mountain bike routes, areas of controlled hunting and climbing locations are only a few of the reasons you will love to explore the mountain.
