Ηiking Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece, and known for being home to the gods of Ancient Greek Mythology, is an unforgettable experience. Home to diverse flora and birds, it became the country’s first ever national park in 1938, and with an extensive network of trails, Olympus is a magnificent destination for hikers. It is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular mountains to climb, due to the nature of its landscapes, and its endless views to the Aegean sea.
We stay overnight on the mountain in cozy stone built huts, and we also hike to the nearby peaks, admiring breathtaking views. Afterwards, we descent the mountain and depending the weather we spend the day either relaxing on the beach or the main village of Litohoro. We will also visit the famous Meteora, the "suspended" rocks, an UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will have a hiking tour in the area to admire the spectacular cliff-hanging monasteries and visit one of them to enjoy breath-taking views from the top of the rocks. On the last day, we move on to Metsovo, a picturesque mountain village known for its unique and colorful hand woven textiles products. We walk though the cobbled streets, taste their local cheese Metsovone, the traditional pies while we enjoy the stunning views.

Ηighlights of this journey:
- Hike Olympus, the highest mountain of Greece
- Visit Meteora, an UNESCO World Heritage Site
- Visit Metsovo, a picturesque traditional village
Itinerary

6 Day Olympus Mountains - Meteora - Metsovo Village Tour - Start Athens

Day 1

Arrive in Athens. From here we drive towards Litohoro located right at the foothills of Olympus mountain. We start at 1110m, and after a 3-hour hike in a pleasant forest trail of pine and fir trees, we reach our destination for the day; the Petrostrouga Hut. We will enjoy a stunning view of the Aegean Sea and the high summits while the tour leader gives a briefing of the next days program. We will have a meal and overnight stay at the hut.

Estimated Walking Time: approx. 3 hours

Day 2

The day starts early as we need to depart by 09:00 towards the Muses Plateau, named after the inspirational goddesses of Literature, Science, and The Arts. During this 4-5 hour stunning hike we will see how the mountain’s ecosystem transforms, from dense forest to alpine terrain, as we head towards higher altitudes. A small but friendly refuge will accommodate us (2 hrs walk). There we have a 2-hour break to get acquainted with the space, have a cup of warm tea, or socialise with local climbers.
After lunch and relaxing time, we will hike the nearby peaks - named Profitis Ilias, at an altitude of 2.781m and the nearby peak of Tumba at 2.786 - just above our refuge to admire superb views of Mt Olympus´ summits. Enjoy a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea while the sun is setting; the perfect ending to our hikes. Upon our return to the refuge, a well deserved dinner and a drink are all we need to complete the day.

Estimated Hiking Time: approx. 4-5 hours

Day 3

Today, after breakfast, is the summit day. In order to reach Mytikas we will have to use our hands (rock scramble). At the top of Mytikas (2918m) you will see one of the most magnificent views in Greece. On a clear day, you are able to see as far as Albania and Bulgaria in the North, and Chalkidiki penisulla. As reaching the summit is challenging and the safety of our clients always comes first, our guides retain the decision if clients are to actually climb the peak of Mytikas. We will descend the mountain, taking a different trail this time. Depending on the weather we will spend the rest of the day on a nearby beach or we will end up in Litohoro village, having a walk around and tasting local food.

Estimated Hiking Time: approx. 8 hours

Day 4

After breakfast, we will head towards Meteora. Famous all over the world for its gigantic rock pillars and monasteries that are built on the rocks' summits, a unique worldwide UNESCO monument. Meteora is one of the largest Greek Orthodox communities in Greece, one of the most imposing sights in Greece and a must-see for everyone visiting the country. Today is a relaxed day. We will drive to some to viewpoints where we can enjoy breathtaking views looking over the monasteries. Later, we will have a hike tour that takes us between then rocks and we will enjoy the sunset. Free time to relax or explore the village.

Estimated Walking Time: 1 hour

Day 5

After breakfast, we will visit one of the clifftop monasteries of Meteora and learn more about their history and monastic life. It is time to leave Meteora behind and take the road towards Metsovo a picturesque mountain village known for its unique and colorful handwoven textiles products. Perched on the mountainside of the range of Pindos, Metsovo is a small traditional village that has tons of authentic character. Today also is a relaxed day as we wonder around in the cobbled streets of the village. We will taste local, traditional food and have a drink enjoying the stunning views. We will then return to Athens and arrive at the hotel.
