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.

If there is one thing you need to do in Greece, it should be to visit Meteora. It was the highlight of my Greek holiday. This company provided an excellent professional service. The accommodation they booked was superb. I would recommend.
