_our excursion

A weekend at the mythical Mount Olympus and the throne of Zeus! A route – crossing that should be scheduled by every hiker – climber with good physical condition.

We leave early on Saturday morning for Litochoro and the forest of Gorcia. We start the ascent from there following the route: Gorcia – Petrostrouga – Muses Plateau. Our overnight stay is at the Giosos Apostolidis shelter of the plateau. The shelter has a kitchen that can offer a basic but very tasty (!!!) menu.

The climb to Mytikas (2.918m) is planned for Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning, provided the weather permits and for those whose physical condition allows it. On our return we follow the route Muses’ Plateau – Zonaria – shelter of Spilios Agapitos – Prionia.
