Autumn in Western Greece

A journey into beauty

Steeped in autumnal colours and full of beautiful surprises.

Nature lovers in the know are in on the secret… Western Greece in Autumn is a destination with no shortage of gorgeous surprises. The trees have donned their crimson and yellow cloaks and wispy clouds adorn an horizon swept clean by the first rains. The moist earth surrenders its special fragrances to the air while, in quiet courtyards, pomegranate trees almost seem to topple with the weight of their fruit.  Even the sea and sun seem to take on the hues of the ripening landscape.  It’s definitely the season to pick new experiences in Western Greece just as local people take to the fields to pick their olives and grapes to put in store for the months ahead.

Leafing through the past

In the idyllic environment of the valley of the river Alphios, the Ancient Olympia stands as an eternal symbol of humanism. In ancient Thermo, the archaeological treasures bear witness to the fascinating history of the city and the Archaeological Museums of Olympia, Patras and Aigio bring the past to life with their astonishing array of exhibits.

Taking a tour of the wetlands of Lake Trichonida is an eye-opening experience in this season and the region’s national parks wait to reveal their autumn collection! Still got the energy? Then, it’s a two-wheel treat looping the lagoon of Messolonghi by bicycle. After that, if you’re in need of nature’s soothing hand, the Thermal Baths of Kyllini, Mourtsianos and Tryphos offer wellness and pleasure in equal measures.

Renew your acquaintance with nature by joining the villagers in their annual harvest of grapes, olives and various other crops and herbs. In traditional wineries, you will be initiated into the secrets of viticulture, while with the rose sugar of Kalavrita you can get a taste of spring in the heart of autumn.

Enrich your album of beautiful images. Colour in your autumn with Western Greece!
