About the trip

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. Every corner, every trail and every summit of this mountain, is a live part of the history and the mythology…
Located in northern Greece and easily accessible from Thessaloniki airport, this mountain is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve.

The 3-day hiking trip runs the east face of the mountain and 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, “the trails of 12 gods" and the high summits.
The meeting with the guests 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 pro-fessionalism.
