Greece, Mount Olympus Trek

Mount Olympus reaches 2917 m into the sky and is the highest point in all of Greece. It is the mystical home of the ancient Greek Gods and is situated in Greece’s oldest and most carefully protected national park.

It was from the steep, rocky summit of Mount Olympus that Zeus hurled thunderbolts against mankind. Our trekking challenge takes us through forest paths and grassy uplands to Mitikas, at 2,917m Mount Olympus’ highest peak, where we, like Zeus, can survey the world and enjoy views described as being ‘fit for the gods!’

Best time of year: June, July & September

Grade: Tough

Number of days: 5
