While Mount Parnassus is easily accessed from Athens and its airport (ATH), the Pindus Mountains require a domestic transfer to a city in the north, such as Ioannina (IOA).

From Ioannina, there are plenty of backcountry options waiting to be explored in the country’s mountainous northwest. Gamila summit (2,497 m), Goura (2.467 m), Mount Smolikas (2.637 m) and Mount Vasilitsa (2.249 m) are all within distance after a transfer from the airport to the nearby town of Mikro Papigko. Dragon Lake and Avalon Pass are also popular backcountry destination in the range.

On the southern edge of the range, Mount Parnassos is a popular single-day backcountry destination close to the capital. If offers excellent views of the surrounding scenery with the rare opportunity to ski at the top of the mountain and swim at the bottom.
