Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece and the second highest mountain in the Balkans, as well as the second highest mountain in the area between the Alps and Caucasus. Its highest summit, Mytikas (or Pantheon as it is also known) that stands tall at 2, 918m, was the home of the twelve gods of Olympus, according to Greek mythology. Mount Olympus, a mountain of worldwide acclaim, boasts rich and interesting biodiversity and the surrounding area is protected as a National Park.
The first time that one visits Olympus is never to be forgotten. The unsurpassed beauty of Greek nature, beautiful scents of the forest, the enchanting humming of birds, the breathtaking steep slopes and the fresh air, all combined create a magical world that carries any hiker to a wonderful dance of emotions. It’s not easy for one to get enough of Olympus because each time it has something new to offer. Our trip will last 4 days. We hope that you’ll join us to share beautiful lifetime memories.
