Activity Description

Two-day Ascent to Mytika! A wonderful route to the top of the emblematic Olympus.

The Two-Day Climb in Mytikas is certainly a unique experience in the life of a hiker! Olympus is a landmark for lovers of mountain hiking and nature and of course for those who love challenges!

We cross the East Side of Olympus. Our route follows beautiful paths in the verdant environment of the mountain. Starting from Prionia at 1,000m and following the European Trail E4 we reach the shelter Spilios Agapitos at 2,100m, after about 3-4 hours. Time to enjoy the unobstructed view to Litochoro and the Aegean and to rest!

The next morning at sunrise we start for the final ascent. Follow the sigmoid path E4 until we reach Triethnes at an altitude of 2,400m. At this point they separate the 3 main paths of Olympus. We continue on the main path E4 to the top of Skala (2,866m). From this small plateau we enjoy stunning views across the mountain. From there, depending on the prevailing weather conditions, we follow either the stone path to Mytikas at 2,918m or the path to Skolio at 2,911m, the second highest peak in Greece. Our current hike lasts 8-9 hours, always depending on the dynamics of the team.

* The program guide / escort reserves the discretion to modify the program for security reasons.

NOTES:

  • The program begins and ends in the village of Litochoro in the foothills of Mt. Olympus.

In case you are flying to Greece, we recommend flying to Thessaloniki airport (Greece’s second biggest town) from where the trip to Litochoro is about 1,5 hours. In case you fly to Athens, the trip is about 6 hours long and we recommend traveling one day before and spending a night in Litochoro. In case you need assistance with hotel bookings or other services please contact us.
