On the summit of Mount Olympus Greek mythology lived and breathed as the meeting place of the gods. This mountain in northern Greece was said to be where the gods and goddesses built their homes and palaces. Any of the gods could live on the great mountain summit, but no human was ever allowed there under any conditions.But you have... More

I was there in June in attempt to climb highest peak. Made it in two days. Wish I could stay there for a longer time. The nature was magnificent and views were breathtaking. Anyone who loves nature and trekking will for sure find this place as one of its kind. There are paths for not experienced people and for experienced... More

Amazing experience. We didn't have time to hike to the summit, but we hiked for a half day and loved every moment of it. We got just beyond the forest. It was definitely strenuous at points, but so worth it. It was a big bucket list item for us. Wear good shoes. Poles would be helpful on the decent as... More

Our Mt. Olympus :) Where do I start? Well, it is suitable for travel all year round with a different beauty for each season. Our visits are countless... I can write a whole lot about it, but I will be short. If you haven't been at the very top of the mountain (2,918 m), then you haven't experienced a truly... More

Climbed to the top about 40 years ago and still talk about it. This was a very memorable thing to do. As you can see this was not recent.

Leane Litochoro behind and continue driving uphill. It's a dirt road, but it's worth it. Leave the car at Prionia (altitude: 1100m) and enter the forest. Enjoy the nature and the silence of the place. Nothing better.

It was just a one day trip for me, but I will always remember it. The views are breathtaking and the awareness that this is THE Mount Olympus is only escalating the feeling of awe. I can honestly recommend this place for everyone - I bet you won't regret it.

We, the men, decided to take the boys on this short trip to go up the mountain and check the views. We drove from Paralia towards Litochoro and on the road followed the signs towards mount Olympus. Following the signs is pretty easy and take you all the way. We didn't want to do a lot of hiking so followed... More

The most amazing trip, it is a must for all. Hard work but not too much and with guides like Mountain Spirit you always feel comfortable. The views and the actual mountain are just fantastic. Over night stay at the top was basic but very comfortable and much fun. Christos is a superb guide and explains everything to you in... More
