Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece, extends to the Prefectures Pieria and Larissa. Southwest of Macedonia, it rises proudly like giant tower 2918 meters high without anything to challenge its sovereignty. It is due to this fact, that the Ancient Greeks had “placed” their gods on it.

The land of huge vertical cliffs, with awe-inspiring panoramic views. Natural sculptures created by prehistoric rivers, and with centuries old -but active- monasteries perched on top. The monks have established a centuries-old tradition: climbing, aided by ropes, nets, wooden structures or bare hands. Today climbers from all over the world visit Meteora, to be challenged by the “god-made” rocks.  UNESCO has designated Meteora as “Conserved and Protected Monument of Humanity “. The Greek state as a “place sacred, unalterable and inviolable “. Add your own characterization in the “guest book” of Meteora, which reaches over 2 million visitors every year.

Zagori is an area in the Pindos mountain range, in Epirus of northwestern Greece. In the area there are 46 so-called settlements: Zagorochoria, which are scattered at the foot of the Pindos mountain ranges. The area is known to adventure lovers as it provides many options for activities in its vast mountain range.

Journey to the “home” of the Centaurs
Such beauty could not but give birth to myths. According to mythology, Pelion is the home of Centaurs and the wise Chiron, where Achilles and Asclepius obtained medicinal knowledge, and birthplace of the well-established symbol of medicine: the snake.
