When we went to Greece in search for hippie destinations a few years ago, we knew exactly where to go – we had a friend waiting for us in Crete, and we were amazed with the laid-back, hippie vibe and places we discovered across the island. But, yeah, we had a host waiting for us.

This last time was completely different.

The idea was to reach Thessaloniki (since the city (second biggest in Greece and really awesome destination to visit) has excellent connections to other parts of the country) and then ask local folks for hippie and alternative/chill destination tips. More of an adventurous trip, without knowing what we will find and discover along the road.

It happened to be awesome decision.

So, two of these we checked out, Samothraki and Crete, and all the other destinations on the map are tips of the locals: (discover each one by a simple mouse hover)

+ “many places in South Crete (that of south Rethymno or south Chania) or the Aegean part of Pelion mountain.”

If you guys visited some of these places and/or you have some tips to share, don’t skip leaving your opinions and experiences in the comment section below.
