Canyoning and hiking in the Enipeas gorge – Mt. Olympus.
Canyoning & Hiking in the Enipeas on Mt. Olympus.
This is a very well balanced combination of hiking in an extremely beautiful terrain and canyoning in the second half of the Enipeas I section , involving the two wonderful abseils, as a very good opportunity for the ones / beginners or not who wish to have a non lengthy but full enough experience of canyoning!
We meet at Litohoro and transfer by your means of transport to the Prionia location (30’ by asphalt road) and start our hike down the impressive Enipeas gorge. A technically easy but exceptionally beautiful 1.40’ hour hike takes us to the starting point of the canyoning section where we gear up for the canyoning. It is an amazingly beautiful place to hike along, drowned in greenery, with Enipeas stream running along with us. Our guides will introduce you to the very interesting and unique in many cases flora of Mt. Olympus!
We spend 2.00’ tο 3.30 hours in the canyon depending up on the size of the group. After the canyoning, we change back into our dry cloths and shoes (our guides have taken care to have them at the finishing point of the canyoning section). Then a 30’ walk takes us back to the 16thcentury St. Dyonisious monastery, where we pay a visit and have a well earned picnic lunch. In our means of transport you are taken back (10’) to your vehicles in Prionia for the return.
Note that for the ones who wish, we can do the full crossing of the Enipeas gorge. In this case, after the canyoning we will have the picnic lunch there and continue the hike all the way down to Litohoro for another 3.30’ to 4.00 hours of easy to moderate walk.
Total activity’s duration: From the time we meet to the “ready to go home” time, 5.30′ to 6.30′ hours and 8.30′ to 9.30′ hours for the full Enipeas gorge crossing.
