The evening is free for exploration of the Portaria village (walks, sightseeing, etc) This village is where the tourism of Pelion began for memories of former glories survive in Portaria, such as the magnificent mansions which were once the property of Zoulias, Athanassakis, and Kantartzis. There is also the lovely little 19th-century three-aisled basilica of Agios Nikolaos which has interesting exterior reliefs on the front. Like the entire region of Pelion, Portaria is really rich in waters and because of that is full of watercourses and waterfalls giving particular embellishing the village.

Fresh and green year-round, the peninsula is dominated by mountains reaching a height of some 1600 meters and covered with pine, oak, fir, plane, and chestnut. Views are dramatic, particularly on the northeast where mountains plunge dizzily to the sea.
