Arrival in Litochoro main square (Trekking Hellas Base) to meet the guide and the rest of the hiking group. Transfer to Prionia, from where we begin our hike, at an altitude of 1.100 meters. The route from Prionia to Spilios Agapitos mountain hut is the most widely used hiking trail on Mount Olympus and part of the E4 European Path. Prionia is the highest point accessible by car. The biggest part of this hike goes through thick forests of pine, beech and fir trees, and is in good condition. We make our way up to an altitude of 2.100 meters and reach the mountain hut Spilios Agapitos where we spend the night.

After an early morning rise and breakfast, we follow the European path E4 until Skala peak 2.866m. From there we have two options, depending on the dynamics of the team and local weather conditions at the time. Our first and main option is to climb Mytikas, the highest peak in Greece at an altitude of 2.918 meters, following a narrow gorge (this part requires around 1 km of scrambling) using safety equipment. From Mytikas peak we can enjoy a stunning view and marvel the most famous peaks like Stefani (Throne of Zeus) and the Musses Plateau!! Our second option is to reach Skolio 2.911m, the second highest peak in Greece. (4-5 hours hiking and/or scramble on narrow paths with an altitude gain of 800 meters). After summitting we head back, following the same path towards Agapitos Mountain Hut.
