Seli, the oldest ski resort in Greece

Seli or Kato Vermio is considered one of the highest villages in Greece and one of the most mountainous villages in Imathia, located in the south-western side of mountain Vermion. Close to the village (about 1,5km) lies the first organized (and homonymous) ski center in the country. It is a rural area, secluded deep inside Vermio’s mountainous forests.

There are many restored and newly built vacation homes, mountain cottages and chalets in the village, with the climate consisting primarily of cool summers and snowy winters. Most of the residents are native Greek speaking Vlachs. The village has many Inns & Hotels nearby and a few cafe-bars and restaurants or tavernas. During the summer months the population rises to 3000 people. Outstandingly enough, the ski lift in Seli village was the first one to built in the entire country in 1934, making Seli the oldest ski resort in Greece.
