Olympus mountain, based on Greek mythology, was the residence of the 12 ancient gods. It is the second highest mountain in the Balkans and since 1938, it has been declared the first national park of Greece. The area is ideal for activities, such as trekking, canyoning, rafting, and climbing.

It is undoubtedly the most popular mountain in Greece, and it attracts thousands of visitors from every corner of the world. Trails and hiking routes cross the mountain and give hikers and visitors the opportunity to get to know the varieties of flora and fauna, and also its natural beauty.
This package is for avid hikers, who enjoy 3-6 hours of trekking daily on the pathways of the mountain, and do not mind being accommodated in mountain huts. Overnight stays will take place in the traditional stone-built shelters, where they offer warmth and delicious food. We will take a a different route back down the mountain to get to where we started.

Ηighlights of this journey:
- Orlias waterfalls
- Tumba Peak
Itinerary

3 Day Olympus Mountain Tour

Day 1

We meet at 08:00 at the metro station Doukissis Plakentias (Blue Line) in Athens. We will depart at 08:30 for a 5 hour trip to arrive at Lytochoro, a village at the foothills of Olympus.

After a short briefing, we head towards Orlias Waterfalls, where we will stop at the natural springs and swim in the cool and crystal-clear waters. Afterwards, we head towards Red Rocks Waterfall to dive and admire the natural scenery. We will have a snack and we move towards the starting point of our path at the area of Gortsia. From there, we will embark on a 3-hour hike, passing through a rich forest of pine and fir trees until we reach our destination for the day, Petrostrouga hut, surrounded by a beautiful beech forest and stunning rooibos. The time is just right to catch the sunset before we enjoy our dinner and overnight in the hut.

Estimated Walking Time: approx. 4 hours
Ascent approx. 800m

Day 2

The day starts early as we need to depart by 08:00 towards the Muses plateau, named after the inspirational goddesses of Literature, Science, and The Arts. During this 5-6 hour stunning hike we will see how the mountain’s ecosystem transforms, from dense forest to alpine terrain, as we head towards higher altitudes. At around 13:00, we will reach the hut that will host us for today. There we have a 2 hour break to get acquainted with the space, have a cup of warm tea, or socialise with local climbers. Then we head straight to the peak of Prophitis Elias with an altitude of 2.781m and the nearby peak of Tumba at 2.786m. A breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea while the sun is setting is the perfect closure of our hikes. Upon our return to the hut, a well deserved dinner and a drink are all we need to complete the day.

Estimated Walking Time: approx. 5 hours
Ascent approx. 800m

Day 3

We wake up at 07:00 and have breakfast until 08:00. Departure at 09:00, for our way back down. We will start our 5-6 hours hike back down the mountain, to arrive at Prionia. We will have a 1-hour relaxing lunch at a traditional tavern. Departure for Athens.
