More Info

The roughly 6,000 islands and mainland peninsula of Greece have been a destination for adventure since the dawn of humanity. The country boasts approximately 300 mountains to summit over 2,000 meters – making it quite a mouth-watering oasis for mountaineers and climbing enthusiasts. Geologically, the ancient rocks (granite and marble) are of a spectacular quality and naturally rugged.

The surrounding nature of the mountainous regions provide immaculate views into areas around the idyllic Mediterranean, from islands near the coast to waterfalls and forests in the interior.

The flora and fauna of Greece is just as stupendous as its jagged peaks. A rare biodiversity has evolved in this iconic region, including deer, mountain goats, and lynxes.

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.
