Mount Olympus (2,355 m.) is the highest peak in Greece. On this 3-day ascent you will reach its summit under expert guidance!
Located in northern Greece, this beautiful mountain is located in the breathtaking Olympus Riviera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve. It is also a place full of mystique and history. According to Greek mythology, this area was home to the 12 ancient gods.
This 3-day hike will take us up the east side of the mountain, hut-to hut via well marked trails through a gorgeous forest. We will cross the “Paths of the 12 gods” and will talk about mythology and history while hiking up. First we will meet at Litochoro town and begin hiking from Gortsia station (1.100m). We will reach the Petrostrouga Hut, Muses Plateau and finally the Plateau Huts, on the first day. The following day we will climb to the top of Mount Olympus.
We will not only enjoy the history and mythology, but also the breathtaking alpine scenery, with panoramic views of the whole Greece. Furthermore, Mount Olympus also has a unique fauna. More than 100 bird species and 30 amphibian and reptile species live here.
