Description

Hiking Summit of Olympus, Greece

Date
August 14

The highest mountain in Greece and the residence of the twelve gods of mythology, invites you to a divine mountaineering experience. Here you will come with a unique mission: to sit on the “throne of Zeus”, having all of Greece at your feet !! and to conquer the peak.

Olympos, extending to the prefectures of Pieria and Larissa, southwest of Macedonia, proudly stands up like a giant tower of 2918 meters without anybody questioning its sovereignty. Because of this fact, the Ancient Greeks had “placed” their gods on him.

Mytikas: at the top of Greece

Higher than the 2,918 meters only the birds fly. These and the immense blue of the sky will be seen on the highest peak of Olympus, Mytikas. With only a few meters away, Skolio, Stephani, Skala and Prophet Elias stand up to form a compact mountain mass that you should see through the clouds, shining and imposing. Besides, one of the interpretations of the word Olympos from the Homeric years is “shining”.
