Mt TAIGETOS, Profitis Illias 2400m, Lakonia, Peloponnese

Mt OLYMPUS, Mitikas 2918m -  Skolio 2904m, Pieria, Thessaly

The jewel in the crown – walking up into the forests from Gourtsia, on a less busy but most beautiful route, emerging onto long approaches with stunning views, a magnificent ridge path onto the unique Plateau of the Muses, with the peaks towering overhead. Whether or not you achieve the summit, memories to savour.

Mt Olympus

You could attempt these famous peaks on your own, if you feel sufficiently experienced – although even with maps it is possible to lose the way, which uses up valuable time and energy. With Mark as your guide, your transport can be arranged if desired, reservations will be secured at convenient and researched hotels in each locality, refuges opened and beds reserved (when required), advice on weather conditions offered, walking days designed and scheduled to suit your abilities - and most importantly, you will be shown interesting and beautiful routes into some of the finest and accessible mountains in Greece.

Sample itinerary

  • Day 1: Travel / arrive / prepare
  • Day 2: Ascend (one overnight at refuge recommended – essential for Olympus)
  • Day 3: Complete climb and descend
  • Day 4: Rest / depart

Prices are negotiable, depending on travel arrangements, standard of hotel requested, number of days and numbers in group. To discuss options and receive quotes for your requirements please contact Mark.
