  • On the way from the airport to the hotel daughter expressed a desire to go on tour with a visit to Mount Olympus. Let's go and have not regretted. In this excursion included visiting the Museum of Vergina. Excursion turned out to be an early departure and long enough. Olympus peaks visible from very large distances-up to 100 km. Climb on the bus to the observation deck at a height of about 1 km. quite picturesque. The throne of Zeus, was visible snow on the tops of almost wasn't. It was very interesting to watch and on the coastal plains, clearly visible Kassandra peninsula.

  • Were in early November 2017, the shelter has been closed already, so went one day, that's real. Departed from Litochoro to Prionii. There started climbing. Special equipment was not, were all in cross-country running shoes, Marathon came, and in thin neproduvaemyh jackets for freeriding. Snow already has begun closer to Scolio, ice, even before the orphanage Agapitos villas and guesthouses, but not strong, it is possible to pass akkuatno. The last third is steep and windy. The way back took 4.5 hours back to 2.5, but back we just ran most of the way, as very much like the heat. Litochoro in November a very beautiful golden autumn. Simply fabulous autumn.

  • Beautiful mountain, perfect view from the top, hiking is not an easy one
  • Amazing place, beautiful scenery, the view from the peak is rewarding
  • Hiked to top and back down in 1 day. That was extreamly hard. Next time I'm staying at the refuge at the top and enjoying the sunset. I will also enjoy the sunrise before heading back down the next day. Gorgeous mountain, great trails, friendly people and a wonderful time to enjoy nature.
  • The pure beauty and knowing it is an actual real place
  • The Mount Olympus is where the god Zeus lives. The 1997 film Hercules was also seen.
