Children learn best through play!
Free of charge
A fun way for kids to discover the mysteries of our fragile planet while making new friends. Because kids love nature, these outdoor activities were developed to create awareness and stimulate kids into action towards the environment, culture and healthy eating.
The Grecoland Discovery Adventures are available six days a week for 7-14 years old and are run by the specially-trained multilingual Grecoland team. Children aged 3-6 can enjoy the Green & Blue Days at the Grecoland.
Stimulating new activities include beach & marine exploration, creative crafts and getting back to nature in the new hotel alternative gardens. At the same time, they are learning to respect our planet, to have a healthy attitude to food and experience the Olympic Spirit and Greek Culture through play.

We roll up our sleeves and watch life itself sprout up from the earth in our allotment. We learn eco-friendly methods to grow healthy food while also learning and practicing composting as a way to be more like nature and have no waste.
Composting – no waste here! We recycle garden and hotel organic refuse.

GREEK SKY @ NIGHT
