Tour Details

Join this Olympus Hiking tour and see yourself at the old habitation of the Greek Gods in a memorable day! Start from Litochoro and reach an altitude of 2,100m, enjoying breathtaking views!

In 1938, Olympus, the highest Greek mountain, the residence of the twelve ancient gods, was the first area which was declared as a National Park. About 50 years ago a special regime was enforced to protect this unique part of our country.

Into the Enipeas gorge and start from the Prionia place, you walk one of the most famous paths in Mount Olympus. This path is a part of the famous E4 paths. The E4 European long distance path or E4 path is one of the European long-distance paths starting in Spain at its westernmost point and finishing in Greece. After 3 hours walk, we climb to the Spilios Agapitos Refuge in 2.100m altitude. From there we enjoy the view to the highest pick of Greece, Mytikas 2.918m.

From 1400 to 2500 m we have the cold-hardy conifers zone in which the conifers start to appear with the rare pine Pinus heldreichii being the most predominant. It appears from 1100 m, replaces the black pine gradually and creates an unmixed with any other trees forest up to 2000 m.

In this particular zone, we also have shrubs and grass plants, while the flora includes many endemic species of the Balkans.

This tour requires a physical and mental health.

Difficulty level class 2.

Private transfers from our Athens hotel to Meteora and Meteora to Athens Airport. Two private tours of Meteora.

They were on-time, professional, and friendly. We had excellent guides for our tours in Meteora. The drivers were outstanding!

Great service

They pick you up right at your hotel, take you to a number of the monasteries with commentary of the area. The fee to enter the monasteries is not included but the 25 euros charge for a half day tour I felt to be reasonable.

The trip is a must for someone who would like to see something very different from ancient Greek archeological sites or the Greek islands and beaches. These monesi are situated on very stiff rocky cliffs and are one of it's kind and vary few places...

We loved this tour! Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t the best (crazy amounts of fog), but our guide Jim/Dmitri and our excellent driver altered the itinerary to make sure we got the best experience (and views) possible. They were both so knowledgeable and personable, it really...

Hiking and Scramble Tour of Great Saint

I highly recommend this tour! It's a great way to see a beautiful, but more inaccessible corner of Meteora. It was just challenging enough to feel like an adventure (I would definitely not attempt it by myself without the guides and the equipment). The climbing...
