The Greek Tolkien Society (Ελληνικός Σύλλογος Φίλων Τόλκιν) The Prancing Pony is a Tolkien Society based in Greece.

It started as a semi-professional website intended to promote Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings for the Greek audience while hosting a forum; eventually it evolved into a full-functioning society in October 2002.

The society is unofficially divided into two "smials", one in Athens and one in Thessaloniki (and all northern Greece).

Some of the activities of the GTS have been the issues of the News from Bree fanzine, as well as cooperating for the subtitlization of Peter Jackson's The Return of the King in Greek theaters.

In October 2007, the GTS hosted the first overboard Tolkien gathering on Greek ground on the island of Andros with Caspar Reiff of Tolkien Ensemble as a special guest; the happening was conveniently named "Cair Andros".
