OLYMPOS MOUNTAIN

Central Greece

The mountain of the gods, the throne of Zeus, the place of the immortals, and several similar descriptions devour the characteristics of the mountain that will conquer your senses from Katerini or Litochoro or even further, before you conquer its peaks.

With its highest peak, Mitika or Pantheon (2.918m) and Throno Zeus, or Stefani respectively, Olympos, which is a National Forest since 1938, has a very rich flora with about 1,700 species and subspecies, corresponding to about 25% of the Greek flora.

Full of hiking and mountaineering routes for all, and with varying degrees of difficulty, Olympus is the mountain that always attracts visitors for many reasons . Whether a simple crossing of the Enipea Gorge, a nature walk or a mountaineering to conquer the summit, the motives are many and the world more.

However, Olympos is a mountain with a challenging terrain, long trails steep and loose peaks. Caution is also required due to the weather’s sudden changes with intense storms and very strong winds as well as low temperatures that reach zero after sunset.

The shelters Spilios Agapitos 2,100m, Vrysopoules 1,800m., Christos Kakalos 2,648m, Stavros 930m., Giosos Apostolides 2,760m, Petrostrouga 1,900m. provide protection and security to visitors who want to rest on their way to the peaks. It is important for the visitor to be informed about availability in shelters since some operate during certain months during the year and others have little availability in beds.
