Two-day excursions to Mount Olympus and the mythical 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. From there we start the climb to Olympus, following the route: Gortsia – Petrostrouga – Plateau of Muses. We spend the night in the refuge of the plateau Giosos Apostolidis. The refuge has a kitchen that can offer a basic but very tasty (!!!) menu.
The ascent to Mytikas (2,918m) is optional, planned for Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning, if the weather conditions allow it and for those whose physical condition allows it. The last part of the climb to Mytika is accompanied by the team of mountain guides – climbing instructors mr. Goumberis Panagiotis – Derou Giorgos and we use climbing equipment (helmet, baudrier, rope). Those who do not wish to attempt the ascent to Mytika can choose a visit to the nearby peak of Profitis Ilias, a walk to the shelter of Kakkalos or relax on the tallest balcony in Greece!
On our return we follow the route Muses’ Plateau – Zonaria – shelter of Spilios Agapitos – Prionia.
