Spring
Spring in Pelion is a little late in coming especially in the higher altitudes. It usually sets in in mid April and the entire May, when one can virtually watch buds turn into blossoms and blossoms into leaves and fruits. The mountain, now stripped of snow...
Summer
Summer is paradise come to Pelion. Nature is at its best: lush vegetation, pretty flowers and blossoms, all sorts of fruit ripening on the trees, bees flitting from aromatic herbs to blooming honeysuckle, nightingales serenading the huge full moon...
Autumn
Early Fall has its own special beauty. The foliage sings its swan song in variegated colours. When one walks in the woods his eyes feast in rainbow colours. It is chestnut and walnut season, and in case one does not notice it, the squirrels will see to it as they busy...
Winter
Winter is time when the Pelion villages, unspoilt and pretty as ever, come out of hiding and become visible. The weather conditions vary depending on the altitude and the general weather pattern. There are long periods of beautiful sunlit days with...

 The Little Train of Pelion
The narrow gauge Little Train of Pelion [gauge of 60 cm] started operating between Volos and Lehonia in 1895 and between Lehonia and Milies in 1903, covering a total distance of approximately 29 klm. It was ingeniously designed and constructed by the Italian engineer Evaristo de Chirico, father of the world renowned surrealist painter Giorgio de Chirico, who, born and schooled in the area, drew his thematology for the metaphysical period of his work especially from his childhood memories of the mountain of the Centaurs and Argonauts. The train was instrumental in the economic and cultural development of Pelion by making distances shorter and thereby facilitating the transportation of both goods and people, and, more importantly, by rendering the dissemination of ideas easier and more effective, given the fact that the mountain, especially in the north, is high and steep and therefore not easily accessible. Having been superseded by the motor vehicle, however, the Little Train was decommissioned in 1971 because it was deemed to be uneconomical. Despite this, his friends never forgot their "Moudzouris" [an endearing term meaning "the smoky train"], and, after applying pressure to the right quarters, they managed to have it reinstated into service after about 25 years. Today it operates at weekends in high season only for tourist purposes, and a ride on it is the favourite excursion of Pelion visitors of all ages and nationalities.
