More Info

Greece is a country in Southeastern Europe, consisting of roughly 6,000 islands just off the shore of its mainland. The rocky and rugged terrain is perfect for mountaineering, offering more than 300 peaks to climb. The Pindus Range extends down through the country and even as far as the island of Crete. About 300 mountain ranges have summits over 2,000 meters, making for legitimate ascents and jaw-dropping views. The marble, gneiss, and granite intrusions that exist in the ancient geology offer particularly craggy regions, in and around heavily forested regions. Climbers will be close to the amazing and unique wildlife of the country, which includes bears, lynxes, deer, and wild goats.

How to Get There

Athens International Airport connects directly with London, Paris, Frankfurt, Moscow, New York, and Istanbul. Bus service within the country can get you to Mt. Olympus, Thessaloniki, and even Sofia or Tirana. This makes up for the inefficient rail system. Ferry rides may also serve as viable and scenic options for transit.

What People Say

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.
