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.

Monasteries

I didn’t realize until I booked the trip that it was 5.5 hrs each way. I almost just said “heck with it” the day before and stayed in Athens, but I dragged my tired corpse out of bed and got on the train. So glad...

Great introduction to Meteora

Our guide Jim—Greek, but named after American-born grandfather—was fabulous. My docent partner was in awe of his ability to be witty and informative for four hours. His tour of the 7c church was absolutely splendid. Loved visiting the hermit caves, too. We were on our...

Excellent Service!

A fully equipped and experienced team of professionals. An amazing experience if you find yourself at Trikala or Kalampaka. Seek out George, The Great Driver and Eva, The Beautiful Guide and you won't regret it.

To be done once in a lifetime

The guide Katerina was very nice and friendly. The trip by train was very tiring though. Should definitely opt for a first class. But the tour itself was very enriching with breathtaking views.

Watch out for ticket details

I booked this tour through GET YOUR GUIDE which I thought included the rail tickets from Athens. The company doing the tour was Visit Meteora which having a similar advertisment to about two others says Full-Day Rail Tour to Meteora. This is misleading as it...

Amazing Meteora

I visited Meteora in Dec. 2018 and booked a Meteora train2train tour. Since it's not a touristic period, it turned out that there was only me in the train2train tour, but they still organized it even for only one person. There was a whole minivan...
