10.00am Arrive in Litochoro and meet with our Base Manager, who will give you your voucher and equipment for Mytikas ascent (helmet, harness). Then drive with your own car to Prionia or Gortsia (optional transfer at extra cost is available), from where you begin your hike to either Spilios Agapitos Mt Hut or Musses Plateau.
Option A, Prionia (1.100m) to Spilios Agapitos Mt Hut (2.100m)
Estimated Walking Time: approx. 3 – 4 hours, Distance: 6 klm, Altitude difference: 1.000m
Prionia is the highest point which can be reached by car. The route from Prionia to Spilios Agapitos mountain hut is the most frequented hiking path on Mount Olympus and a part of the E4 trail. Most of the hike is through a thick forest of pine, beech & fir trees and the path is in good condition. We make our way up to an altitude of 2.100 metres and reach the mountain hut Spilios Agapitos where you will spend the night.
Option B, Gortsia (1.100m) - Musses Plateau (2.700m)
Estimated Walking Time: approx. 5-7 hours, Distance 12 klm, Altitude difference 1.500m
If you chose Gortsia as your starting point, about halfway up you'll find Petrostrouga (1.940 m) mountain hut. Here you can take a break to rest and relax, before continuing up the trail to reach the scenic Musses Plateau and Giosos Apostolidis mountain hut for your overnight stay.
