Olympus Mountains Climb

In order to participate in the program you’ll need to be in a good physical condition. There are some steep sections along the way and the last section of the ascent is exposed and requires some scrambling, so not suitable for people with fear of heights. If you are in any doubt about your ability to cope with such terrain, contact us for further information. The trip is guided by internationally certified UIMLA Mountain Leader who will take care of your safety during the ascent and descent of Mount Mytikas.

The trip is available between June and October. The condition of some parts of the route may vary significantly, depending on the season and the weather, so we reserve the right to modify the route in order to provide maximum safety for our clients. As an example we may reverse the program and start from Prionia locality if the so-called Zonaria Trail is still covered by snow in May/early June.
