Mount Olympus is not only part of Greek mythology, it is a real mountain peak that can be ascended by both beginners and professionals. According to legend, Mount Olympus was the residence of all the Greek gods. 2,917 m higher than all mortals, they ruled the world and people's destinies.

Aside from its historical importance, it is the best hiking destination in the country and one of the highest mountains of Europe. With its 160 km of trails, visitors have a variety of options and places to visit from the highest peak Mytikas to Skolio or even the home of Zeus—Stefani. It is especially beautiful during sunrise, when everything turns pink.

The period from May to October is recommended as the best season for an unforgettable 2-3 day hike.
