Description

Explore the impressive Mount Olympus, Greece on an invigorating hiking trip to the summit. During three exciting days, we’ll explore this wonderful mountain, also known as Mount Mytikas, and enjoy the amazing views it has to offer. Join me!

Mount Olympus is definitely one of Greece’s most iconic mountains. It has an altitude of 2,917 meters and was famed to be the home of the 12 ancient Greek Gods led by Zeus. As the highest point in the country, the panoramic views of Greece from the top are unforgettable. Additionally, we’ll enjoy front-seat views of the incredible Mount Stefani (2,902m). Furthermore, the route to the top is full of forests, exotic flora and exciting obstacles!

This trip is for participants with some experience hiking and good physical condition. The last portion of the ascent is exposed and requires some scrambling, which is why it is important that you are not afraid of heights.

Send your request to discover the inspiring views this beautiful mountain has to offer. I can guarantee you’ll fall in love with Greece.
