Would you like to visit a beautiful natural place near Athens? Come with me on this 1-day hiking program to Mount Parnitha.

Located in a national park and protected area, Mount Parnitha (1,413 meters) is a range in north Athens that offers a great variety of flora and wildlife. It is also an important historical landmark. Therefore, it’s the ideal place to combine nature and culture on a hiking excursion. 

On this program, I invite you to go through a beautiful forest and contemplate stunning views in the area. Also, while walking, we may have the chance to see some of the local fauna, such as the gorgeous Red Deer.

If you don’t have a lot of hiking experience, you don’t need to worry. This is an easy hike and it is open to everyone who loves exploring natural environments.

If you think this program would suit you, get in touch with me by sending your request to book your place. I will love to guide you on this lovely hike near Athens.

Additionally, you can take a look at this program that I lead in Mount Olympus, the most iconic peak in Greece.

About the Guide


I have been climbing with passion since the age of 14 when I started rock climbing, and (in my 20's) I became a full-time mountain guide. Even though climbing first began only as a hobby, it later led me to a professional Mountain Guide title.

I am a Greek certified Mountain Guide HFMC, and an IFMGA/UIAGM/IVBV Mountain Guide, which is the highest internationally recognized mountain guiding certification. I am also a board member of the Hellenic Mountain Guide Association and a member of the Austria Guides Association (section Vorarlberg).

In the last 20 years, I have accomplished many expeditions all over the world from Denali in Alaska to Damavand Iran, climbing or guiding and skitouring.

I love the mountains as well as the sea. I'm a passionate sailor and a skipper, also organizing climbing and sailing trips in the Aegean Sea.

Now I am currently studying Marketing and Management at EAP University.
I live between my birthplace Litochoro, the village at the foot of Mt. Olympus Greece, and Chamonix France.
You can find me guiding between Mt. Olympus and Chamonix Mont-Blanc, ski touring the Haute Route in the Alps, to summiting Mt Elbrus in Caucasus or sailing and climbing on the Greek islands.

I love to work with groups in new destinations and make great pictures along the way.

What People are Saying about Babis Marinidis


Amazing site. Helped but me in touch with Babis Marinidis. Fantastic mountain guide, super helpful and attentive to needs. Made my climbing of Mt. Olympus so much fun. Could not recommend Explore-share or Babis more!

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.
