Greece’s Tourism Expected to Boom in 2022

Greece is gearing up for what is expected to be an outstanding year in travel for the entire country. 

The Greek Tourism Ministry is anticipating the sector will return to pre-pandemic levels in 2022, as officials are working closely with industry leaders to ensure it’s a record year across the board. 

In 2019, over 33 million visitors arrived in Greece, up from 24 million in 2015, making it one of the most visited countries in Europe and the world.  

And according to Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias, this year will see a booming comeback with new projects including upgrading important tourism infrastructure, setting up a crisis management task force, and new training programs for tourism professionals.

The Ministry also stressed the importance of highlighting Greece as a year-round destination, extending the tourism season, promoting lesser-known destinations, attracting higher-quality tourists, promoting cruise travel, attracting tourism investment, as well as focusing on sustainable tourism practices.

So far, the government has approved projects including upgrades to tourist ports, development of winter and mountain tourism, development of wellness and health tourism, training programs for tourism employees, agri-food and gastronomy tourism, diving and underwater tourism as well as making beaches more accessible to those with disabilities. 

According to trade publication Travel Pulse, a recent survey by tour operators worldwide revealed key travel trends and top destinations for 2022, with Europe leading the way. Italy is currently ranking as the number one place of interest, Greece, and France tying second, and Ireland coming in at number three.

In another report just released by Greek tourism research group Tourix, Athens is also attracting more and more interest from the United States, Israel, and Cyprus.

Elatos Resort: Ideal for Winter

Situated 1300m above sea level Elatos Resort is the perfect winter escape. You can either relax and take in all the resort has to offer or if you are a ski enthusiast it is located just a hop away from the ski slopes of Mount Parnassos.


It’s only 2.5 hours drive from Athens, close to the famous Mount Parnassos ski slopes, as well as the town of Arachova and Delphi. Only minutes away from the traditional village of Agoriani, the resort is in a secluded fir forest area brimming with fauna and providing for long walks surrounding lush greenery.

Style & Character 

Warm and inviting, the beautifully designed log cabins are ideal for the cooler months. Rooms are minimally designed with plenty of wood accents. 

Room Types 

The resort features 40 secluded wooden chalets scattered throughout a 25-acre forest area; Classic Chalet for 2 – 4 ppl, 9 – Deluxe Chalet for 2-6 ppl  and 11 – Family Chalet for 2 – 6 ppl. 


The wooden chalets are scattered around a central Club House with an indoor pool, restaurant, bar, gym, kids-room, massage room and conference area. 

Ideal for…

Anyone looking for an adventurous getaway as the area surrounding the resort is ideal for both experienced and amateur skiers and mountain bikers. The resort often has snowfall during the winter but also far cooler weather during the sweltering Greek summer months. It’s also perfect for families as The Club House offers two separate areas for recreation. The “kids room” is ideal for toddlers and small children, as it has space for kids to play freely. For nature lovers Elatos Resort & Health Club is a great starting point for a visit to the incredible nature of Mt Parnassus, as well as countless trails and paths that lead to green meadows and waterfalls that are over 80m high.

Food & Drinks

The “Itamos” restaurant, with a majestic view to the fir-forest and surrounding mountain, is located on the ground floor of the Club House. The chef prepares a menu that is inspired by the mountain and uses mostly locally sourced produce. During long weekends and the holiday season the kitchen team puts together themed buffets and gala dinners. The hotel’s bar is where you can enjoy your coffee with delicious snacks as well as premium drinks, cocktails, quality wines and aged tsipouro. During the winter months, the fireplace transforms the lounge into an intimate, charming meeting place.
