More Info

Greece is more than just world-class beaches and ancient civilization. The hiking trails snaking across its remarkable terrain are just as phenomenal, stretching into its highest mountains and most isolated islands. Many of the trails do not require a substantial amount of experience, though you should have enough fitness to comfortably enjoy a week of sustained walking and hiking. Some of the top objectives in the country, like Mt. Olympus, may also include scrambling or more technical aspects for more ambitious hikers and climbers.

 

 

Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

Mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers define this classic Mediterranean locale. Snowfall is not uncommon at high altitudes, so an alpine climate can be expected at some places.

How long should I stay?

With islands sprouting up all over the Mediterranean and a sharp distinction between each of its regions, Greece is a destination that begs a lengthy stay. Many programs last from one to two weeks, and an ascent up Olympus generally takes at least two or three days. Patch together a few different adventures and you’ll have a summer swimming in Greek intrigue.

Best time to visit

The months from June to September are the best for hiking in higher altitude locations in Greece, though you can find great programs all year round. Crete and other low-elevation spots will have a wide array of treks to choose from.

This was an awesome experience! Thansk to Pavlos, who is a perfect guide (and not a luxury at all when you
want to climb Mytikas, we had 2 meter of snow in April). We did not reach the top due to heavy snowfall, but made a couple of other hikes while Pavlos told us the complete history of the Olympos mountain range. The breathtaking views from the refuge Giosos Apostolidis with the ever smiling ward Lazaros: it made it all a highly recommended journey! Thanks to all for making this happen!

Good trip, but Babis did not allow for his perhaps unusual clients. He was too keen to do everything at
super-fast speed, and get to the refuges early. A slower pace would have suited us better. Also he did not brief us adequately on what to expect, and give advice on facilities and rules of the refuges.
