More Info

Mount Olympus is located in the Olympus Range on the border between Thessaly and Macedonia in the north of Greece. Hanging over the Aegean Sea, the snow-covered summit often soars beyond low-hanging clouds, cultivating a strong sense of Greek mythology covering the mountain, which is said to have been the great throne of Zeus. Surrounded within a protected national park, founded in 1938, Mount Olympus has fostered a rich diversity of flora.

What People Say

 

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!
Ken Koeklenberg for Climbing Mount Olympus in 3 days
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.
