Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece and was notable in Greek mythology as the home of the Greek gods. You will be able to admire the rich fauna and flora, since Olympus mountain has been a National Park, the first one in Greece, since 1938 and it is also a World’s Biosphere Reserve.
With its rich vegetation and breathtaking view Mount Olympus will definitely be a lifetime of experience! We meet our guide in the square of Litochoro village and continue by car to the Agios Dionysios Monastery. After a 20-minute walk from the Monastery we visit the Agio Spilaio, where Saint Dionysios lived as an ascetic and you can already feel the sanctity of the area.
The route is quite tiring due to the ascents and descents, but the varied geological features, the small lakes with crystal clear waters and the sheer mountain slopes provide a rare beauty and rewards the visitors. We will have several swimming opportunities in natural river pools before we end our adventure “Hiking Enipeas Gorge” and route in Litochoro.
