Activity Description

This is a new activity by Trekking Hellas that has enthusiastically "opened" this historical passage, which, according to the history and the myths of the region, has chosen Alexander the Great to cross with his army from the region of Thessaly. . It is a relatively easy trail that offers a unique view between the two famous mountains of the area, Olympus and Kissavos. A perimeter view of the walker embraces a wider area, from the coasts of Larissa (Seven Blue Miles) to Halkidiki and Mount Athos, the second and third peak of Mount Olympus, the villages of Lower Olympus, and the Canyon of Omolio.

Route information

  • The route starts at 4 × 4 from the Omolio Theater on a difficult 5km road (also available for walking from the beginning) and ends at a glade from where a relatively easy climb of about one kilometer begins. Its creator baptized her "Laughing Path".
  • Impressive is the time when the traveler faces the path of a 100-meter-long rock lane, a natural suspension bridge over the infinite gap of the canyon.
  • Carefully walking with little difficulty, we cross over to the opposite side giving us a different picture. We reach the chestnut trees of Ambelakia and complete the stroll on the natural terrace where we will enjoy all the splendor of this unique view with a hot coffee and a local treat.
  • Turning to our stand on the "slab of memory" everyone with their own approach and gaze will try to discover through the carved names and graphs the history of this passage. Ancient walkers, venetians, bandits, shepherds, guerrillas, climbers, wanderers, mountain lovers, all left their signature in their own way. We will see and learn about the "Arvanitis" hole.
  • After the first crossing experience, we now have to stop at the Alexander the Great rocky pass for a good commemorative photo. Arriving at the glade for the turn we can now visit the 4X4 with a "special" chapel built into the rock with varied and counter-diametric references to the way and reason for its existence. An activity that is also of great interest to herbs collection.
  • On our return we can optionally visit the thermal bath in the Red Water for a swim, or the Pinios Delta.
