Description

Climbing Mount Olympus is a unique experience that will bring you closer to Greek culture while also allowing you to enjoy the beautiful wilderness. On this 3-day tour, we will have the chance to climb to the summit of Skolio, the second-highest peak in the massif. Alternatively, we also have the choice of climbing to the top of the highest peak, Mytikas.

Although both options are available, the first involves an easygoing hike, and the second a slightly more demanding climb with scrambling for which you will need to use more technical equipment that we will provide. Either way, in the evening you will enjoy a beautiful dinner under the starry sky with views of the throne of Zeus.

Throughout the tour, we will make sure to make your safety and enjoyment a top priority. We will also climb in small groups. You will need to be fit, but no prior climbing experience is required.

If you would like to join this exciting tour to the top of Skolio or Mytikas, then send your request and book today!

Vagelis was a great friendly guide tailoring the hike to our higher ability. He also provided us with loads of information about the local peaks/walks, history and hiking culture. He kept us hydrated and safe on the mountain. Hiking Greece was quick to respond to emails and was very professional. They could do with providing a bit more information on what to take and route without having to be promoted. Highly recommend.
