Full description

Nestled in the eastern region of Olympus, just west of Dion, there exists a hidden paradise, largely undiscovered by many—a magnificent place known as Rema Orlia.  By myth, Orlias, Pieria’s ancient river, disappeared in shame after refusing to cleanse the Marinades who wished to wash their hands in its waters, stained with Orpheus’ blood.

After gracefully flowing beneath the earth’s surface, the river emerged once again, revealing its majestic presence just a short distance from Dion, where it transformed into magnificent cascades that left spectators in awe. Rema Orlia, as one of the primary tributaries of Olympus, stands as a testament to the enduring power of nature, its waters continuously streaming throughout the year, creating a captivating sight for all who behold it.

Join us on an extraordinary adventure, the Rema Orlias River Trekking program, which commences with a leisurely 50-minute stroll from the charming chapel of Saints Constantine and Helen. As we set foot on the trail, it unfolds beside the enchanting Orlia stream, treating our senses to the gentle melody of flowing water throughout the entire expedition.

Our captivating journey leads us to the grand finale at the iconic “Red Rock,” an awe-inspiring waterfall that graces the Olympus region with its magnificent 18-meter descent.

Here, we invite you to immerse yourself in the invigorating icy waters, rejuvenating both body and spirit. Retracing our steps along the same path, we relish the opportunity to take a dip in the serene pools of Orlias, creating cherished memories of breathtaking sights and delightful moments of pure bliss.
