2-day Mt. Olympus ( for May only )

from 100

Day 1: We meet in Litochoro’s center (the central open car park behind the church), at 11:30. Transfer to Prionia location at 1100m (car park and café / restaurant) from where we start our first day’s walk, after a briefing about the ascent and the program. At about 13:00 we start the walk up to the first day’ destination, the refuge A’ or “Spilios Agapitos” at 2100m, where we arrive after 3.00’ to 3.30’ hours (net walking time without the stops). During the hike in very beautiful cone and deciduous tree forest, the guides introduce you to the very special flora and the peculiarities of the Mt. Olympus microclimate. Have an early night in “Spilios Agapitos”. Duration of walk 3.00’ to 3.30’ hours moderate. Altitude covered, 1000m up

Day 2:  An early start before dawn – something like 06:00, gives us the opportunity to experience a unique sunrise from higher up in the alpine zone. Our destination is the Summits of Skala, Skolio (the second highest 2911m) and of course have a go to attempt the highest summit “Mytikas” at 2918m, which is a very special and demanding scramble (if the conditions and remaining snow coverage of May will permit it). At about 11:00 we will be on the summit and at 13:00 to 13:30 back to the refuge A’.

Here, we have 1.30’ hours to rest, have something to eat and drink and return back to Prionia the same way we came up. We should be back to Prionia at about 17:30 to 19:00.

Duration of walk from the refuge to Skolio and back 5.00’ hours moderate / challenging and in the case of climbing Mytikas 6.00’ hours moderate / challenging / scrabling. From the refuge to Prionia, 2.30’ hours moderate.
