Description

Would you like to see Greece from its highest point, alongside Zeus and his gang? Then hiking to the top of Mytikas, the Mount Olympus summit is definitely a must.

At 2918 m, the mythical Mount Olympus rises as the highest peak in Greece. On this 2-day adventure, we will reach its summit and discover this historic and iconic landform, as well as its pinnacle, and gorgeous wildlife.  Located within the mountain range of the same name, it draws tourists from all around to world, eager to climb its peaks, explore its nature, and learn its culture.

Our trip will take us on a journey through every aspect of this incredible mountain. You will spend around six hours each day hiking in the area, with the ultimate prize of reaching the summit of Mytikas, the tallest point in Greece.

We will set off early on day one in Litochoro at 8:00 am to discuss and plan our trek. Then, we will drive to Gortsia, our starting point, where the forest will line our path as we make our way to Refuge A (1940m). We will continue on to the Muses Plateau (2,650m) and spend the night at the mountain hut there.

The following day, we will pass by the mighty throne of Zeus and scramble up a challenging couloir to the top. From the summit, we will enjoy unforgettable views!

This is a sustained hike, so you should be in very good shape to join. Furthermore, there are some challenging moments that require scrambling on rock, so any prior hiking experience would be an asset. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you.

So, are you ready to reach the Mytikas summit? Then send your request now and join the ranks of the remarkable and proud hikers who have braved the heights of Mount Olympus!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
