Those who have tried it consider it a life experience ...
Those who are experienced climbers, enjoy their time every time they are there ...
Especially the three-day climb to Mount Olympus is a unique experience for anyone who wants to get to know the mountain of the Gods without ever reaching their extremes, as the three days give you the opportunity to enjoy the mountain, share hiking hours and be fascinated by the smells and images that this mountain generously gives!
A weekend that gives you the opportunity to see the mountain on both sides, make a "little circle", sleep in two different shelters and return home full of emotions, tired but not exhausted!
Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in the country at an altitude of 2918 meters (peak Mytikas) and the second highest in the Balkans. Tall, rocky peaks stretch across the horizon and paths in all directions to choose from!
Mount Olympus is a difficult mountain, with great elevation differences (climbing slope) and requires attention and respect from everyone, experienced and beginners. Especially the last part of the mountain to the tops, requires attention and experience.
Combine your good mood and fitness (from moderate to high) with the experience of Happy Mountain executives and you'll find the way to climb the most imposing mountain in Greece! It wants both effort and way!
After all, the absolute satisfaction we get every time we go back upstairs is that we've been able to bring kids and adults alike - basically beginners and young people to the mountain! We have been able to give satisfaction to all those people who trust us every time! We have been able to bring people close to nature, who will someday return, alone or with friends!
So if you want to experience one of the most powerful cross-border mountaineering experiences, read the full 3-day program ...
