Full description

Embark on a divine mountaineering adventure to the loftiest summit in Greece, which also served as the dwelling place for the twelve gods of mythology. Prepare for a truly unique mission: to ascend to the glorious “throne of Zeus,” where you will find yourself overlooking the entire expanse of Greece! Your ultimate goal is to conquer this majestic peak.

Olympos, stretching across the prefectures of Pieria and Larissa in the southwest region of Macedonia, stands proudly like an immense tower soaring to a staggering height of 2,918 meters, unchallenged in its sovereignty. It is this very reason that prompted the Ancient Greeks to “bestow” their gods upon this magnificent mountain.

At the pinnacle of Greece lies Mytikas, a summit where only the birds dare to venture higher than its 2,918 meters. As you approach, Skolio, Stephani, Skala, and Prophet Elias emerge, forming a formidable mountain massif that punctures through the clouds, radiating a resplendent and commanding presence. In fact, one interpretation of the word “Olympos” from the Homeric era is “shining.”

Enveloped by the vast expanse of the sky’s azure hue, you will witness this breathtaking sight atop Mytikas, surrounded by the neighboring peaks mere meters away. Skolio, Stephani, Skala, and Prophet Elias unite, forming a compact range that illuminates the clouds with its magnificence.
