Marie Curie Mount Olympus Trek 2017

7th - 11th September 2017

Discover the mystical home of the ancient Greek Gods, trekking through forest paths and grassy uplands situated in Greece’s oldest national park.Mount Olympus reaches 2917m 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.  Today the national park has an extensive concentration of flora and fauna, and boasts dozens of endemic species of flower as well as some endangered birds and butterflies.
