The island of Thassos is the furthermost northern island of Greece. It is no coincidence that Greeks call it The Green Pearl as most of it is covered by old and natural pine forests. The mountains of the island rise to more than 1200m above the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea. This natural beauty has changed hands many times through history and has accumulated a rich historical and cultural heritage.
