Greece is a year-round destination
Did you know that you can enjoy holidays in Greece during all seasons?! Summer, spring, autumn, or winter, all seasons promise amazing family experiences. Some Greek destinations guarantee relatively warm temperatures and sun all year round, which makes them a delight to explore.
The islands of Rhodes, Crete and are such places. They have a very mild climate, and you can swim in the sea until October. Athens is colder, and sometimes it even snows in winter. But even the Greek capital enjoys many days of sunshine and high temperatures in the winter too! Greece truly is a destination that can be enjoyed throughout the year!
Over the years, we have been able to explore a lot of less famous Greek destinations, all of which are suitable for other seasons but summer. Think of the Epirus region, the Pelion, Evia, but also the Peloponnese and mainland Greece or the cities of Athens and Thessaloniki. On this blog, you’ll find reviews of these trips.

Traveling Greece off-season
Greece is the most beautiful place for a summer vacation. Its golden beaches dazzle in the sizzling sun, and its ancient marble statues shine against the blue sky. But if you are flexible on the dates when you travel (especially when your kids do not attend school yet) and you want to appreciate Greece at its best, the off-season is a great time.
4 Reasons to start planning an off-season trip to Greece
Are you not convinced yet? You may not think of Greece for a vacation other than in summer. Many people think that Athens is great for a city trip off-season, but they do not consider the rest of Greece. That is why we have listed below 4 good reasons to start planning an off-season trip to Greece:
- Enjoy cooler temperatures. Visit the Acropolis without the burning summer heat and stay on the beach all-day
- Avoid de crowds too (think Acropolis and beach again)
- Find a table to enjoy Greek food in any restaurant that you want
- Flights and accommodation are cheaper (except during Christmas and Easter)
