Tour Description

The “usual” way of climbing Mount Olympus is to start hiking from the east side of the mountain. If you are however “on a tight schedule” and want to experience an amazing one-day adventure, our Mount Olympus Conquest tour that takes you up all the way to the summit in a few hours, is the one for you! Are you up for it?

We will pick you up with our 4×4 vehicle and drive up to Christakis refuge. A mixture of tarmac (the first 20 kilometers until Kalivia Elassonas) and dirt road (the next 22Km) lie ahead of us until we reach the refuge at an altitude of 2,430 meters. From here we start our hiking ascend (approx. 60-70 min.), initially on an uphill, part of the E4 (European Trail) path, traversing the peak of Skolio (2,912m)- reaching Skala, from where we will continue our hiking adventure towards the most demanding part of the ascend. We then follow “Kakoskala”, enjoying a scramble climb until the peak of Mytikas (2,917m) where Zeus used to observe the whole of Greece!

The total duration of this thrilling  journey depends on the number -and of course the experience of the participants and may last between 8-10 hours (including transfers).
