  • Reach the top of Mytikas, the highest point in Greece.
  • Enjoy a unique adventure on the mythical Mount Olympus.
  • Spend time outdoors in a stunning environment with family and friends.


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!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
