Our Olympus Family Hike tour is a pleasant and easy leisure day full of fun and mythology.
Olympus in Greek Mythology is referred to as the home of the Twelve Gods. Olympus is also known for its rich flora and fauna with many species of animals and plants and is the first National Park in Greece since 1938.
With the aura of the mythical mountain sweeping us and the mountain aromas from the pine trees and the flowers of Olympus, we start our hike in Litochoro. We follow old alleys passing in front of the First Primary School, built in 1907 and we end up in the church of Agia Paraskevi where we leave the village and follow a path with a magical view to Litochoro and the sea.
In the location of Vythos we enjoy an amazing view of the high peaks (Mytikas 2918m, Stefani 2909m) from the wide opening made by the imposing gorge of Enipeas that stands above us.
Following the burble of the waters of Enipeas, we reach the “fountain of Zeus”, a magical place and we continue to the area of Lakkos, the last stop of our hike. From there we return full of images and experiences to our base in the central square of Litochoro.
Ideal hiking for children since for our little friends who want to discover Mount Olympus, a map-sketch of the route is available, so that through the games they can love nature and the mountain.
Our hiking tour will take you through beautiful easy trails, to chapels, waterfalls and places with spectacular views. En route children will learn in an interactive way about the mythology and nature of the mythical mountain.
