AMANITA Mt. Pelion Experience

The harmonious composition of the lushly green mountain and the blue sea of the Aegean, soft bed sheets, birdsongs, the aroma of baking bread, gurgling waters, the table-served breakfast of local specialties ''farm to table'', the scent of flowers, the gathering of nuts and herbs, authentic homey hospitality, the sweetest fresh fruit, exploring emerald beaches, buildings made of locally available stone and wood, cobblestone paths, the plentiful harvest of mushrooms, walks through the forest, workshops on mushroom collecting, Kitchen lessons. This is the Mt. Pelion Experience offered by the AMANITA Guesthouse.

The hotel is located in the middle of a 3.5 acre organic garden, consisting of a botanical garden, an orchard and a seasonal vegetable garden. The greek word for that is 'Perivoli' that means an area cultivated for family consumption that is surrounded by a fence.

Our guests can roam the garden and relax in the special resting areas.


In ΑΜAΝΙΤΑ, we offer you experiential activities, which will give you the opportunity to become familiar with the local gastronomy and its strong link to foraging and the cultivation of aromatic herbs, greens and vegetables in small gardens.


Mushroom hunting

On the very first day the AMANITA Guesthouse opened in October 2006, we managed to successfully organise a mushroom hunt followed by a tasting session. Since then, every June and in the autumn, we delve deep into the forest and combine the thrill and satisfaction of the hunt with the sheer joy of spending time with our guests, many of whom visit us just to enjoy this mushroom hunting experience.

Our teachers in this quest have been some of the better known mushroom hunters of eastern Pelion. They taught us to gather Caesar's mushrooms (Amanita caesarea), penny buns (Boletus edulis), black porcini (Boletus aereus) and parasol mushrooms (Macrolepiota procera). Later on, guests from France pointed out the wood hedgehogs (Hydnum repandum) and black trumpets (Craterellus cornucopioides). We learned about greencracked brittlegills (Russula virescens), oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus), chanterelles (Cantharellus cibarius) and the golden coral mushrooms (Ramaria aurea) from some of the great books on mushroom collecting available on the market. 

Since then every year we train over 150 people to find and identify wild mushroom.  AMANITA Guesthouse’s mushroom forays attract visitors from all over Greece and abroad. We get a great satisfaction when we train city children and we feel their great joy as they discover the magical mushroom world.
