3 Days Hiking Trip on Mount Olympus - Greece

Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece and the most symbolic, as it is very tightly connected with the Greek Mythology and the 12 Gods.
Located in northern Greece and easily accessible from Thessaloniki airport, this mountain is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve.

On this 3-day hiking trip you will climb the very top of Greece - Mytikas 2918m, under my guidance, but the most, you will enjoy a hut-to-hut hiking adventure via well-marked trails that give access to the “Paths of the 12 gods" and the high summits.
Our meeting is at Litochoro, a picturesque village at the foot of the mountain, where I will welcome you and brief you in details about the hike.

So, if you are ready to hike the Greek Gods trails and enjoy the view towards the Mediterranean Sea from the very top of Greece, please contact me! It’ll be my pleasure to guide you on this unforgettable hiking experience with safety and professionalism.
