We have begun this initiative based in Thessaloniki, specializing in religious and cultural travelling. We are a small group of well travelled, multilingual people who have a significant experience regarding Agion Oros and the surrounding area. Our aim is to provide you, our guests, a high quality service in organizing your time here, making your experience unique and unforgettable.

 

My name is Sotiris Koikopoulos and I consider myself a friend of Agion Oros. I have been to Mount Athos many times. After visiting Agion Oros for the first time, many years ago I realized that over there one can find unprecedented calmness, tranquility, peace and even spiritual clarity. This has nothing to do with the religious belief of the visitor. One can enjoy the beauty of the environment, the richness of history and the mysticism of the orthodox religion. All it takes is an open mind and a will to embark on a journey back in time.

 

Having worked for many years in the airline business I have met many people from abroad as my travels were taking me all around the world. I realized that most of them did not know of Agion Oros. Those who trusted my enthusiasm and came with me for a visit, became themselves friends of this unique community and often return for a new adventure. So, that is why I thought of introducing to you this magnificent place, through this website and invite you over to share this experience.

 

We would welcome your interest and questions and we will try our best to prepare your visit so that it will be as carefree and pleasant as possible, meeting your every need and satisfing you in the best possible way.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us for your inquiries or even to tell us your experience in case you have already been to Agion Oros.

 

 

 

Feedback from visitors:

 

“Sotiris’ services are recommended by ADAC, a German publisher of travel reviews. I also appreciated his website as he puts Athos at the forefront, instead of his own publicity. These were the two reasons why I contacted Sotiris. Over the phone and e-mails, we noticed his excellent English, enthusiasm, friendliness and knowledge about Athos. This was comforting to us, two Western-European, non-Orthodox people speaking no Greek. The arrangements Sotiris made and the information we obtained proved to be reliable in practice. In addition, we had the pleasure to have dinner with Sotiris in Thessaloniki after our Athos trip and learn more interesting stories about Athos and about Greece in general.

I can really recommend Sotiris for organising your trip to Athos!

adds a lot of value to foreigners like us, who want to maximize

their experience with their 3 days visa at Mount Athos.
