Mount Athos is a monastery complex located on a scenic peninsula in northern Greece. It is only accessible to men, with prior permission.

The peninsula hosts 20 Eastern Orthodox monasteries and their associated sketae (cloisters) and cells, with over 1,700 monks in residence. These monasteries possess holy relics, icons, frescoes and mosaics of great value.

Visitors can typically stay for free at a monastery for at least one night. Hiking between monasteries along scenic trails is the most popular activity.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
