Hiking Mount Olympos is an absolute classic! If you enjoy mountaineering, this is a must-do during your next visit to Greece. Not only is Mount Olympos the highest mountain in Greece, it has a huge reputation, both in history and nature. Expect to find deep gorges, majestic summits, and high plateaus waiting for you.
This 5 day tour begins with your arrival at Litochoro village. It is a beautiful village located at the foot of the east side of the mountain. This village is our starting point for our ascent to the top of Olympos. Your hike will start the following day, so you will be able to check out the village. We will break the hike itself up into 3 days. The first of 3 days will be an ascent to the “Plateau of Muses,” at an elevation of 2630m, via the Petrostrouga-Skourta route. The next day will be an ascent to the summit, via the “Louki” route, at an elevation of 2918m. This is ascent, while not very difficult, is somewhat technical. We will then decend to a refuge. The final day consists of a descent to the “prionia” location, followed by a returning to Litochoro via the beautiful Enipeas gorge. You will depart on day 5. Good basic stamina is required.
