Tour overview

Ascend from Prionia to Spilios Agapitos Mountain Hut! Join us on a classic hike to the most beautiful “balcony in Greece” and take in the breathtaking views…

Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece, located in northern Greece comprising a natural boundary between the prefectures of Macedonia and Thessaly. Mount Olympus’ highest point is the summit of Mytikas at 2,918 m. Since ancient times, Mt. Olympus has proved a difficult crossing point for numerous aspiring conquerors of the Greek territory. It is a place of divine beauty, notable in Greek mythology as home of the Greek Gods. Its proximity to the coastline overlooking the Aegean Sea offers breathtaking views. The characteristic silvery mist that engulfs the mountain creates a unique atmosphere. 1938 it was declared Greece’s first National Park due to its exceptional biodiversity and rich flora.

Our Ascend from Prionia to Spilios Agapitos Mountain Hut tour starts at our Trekking Hellas Base in the main square of Litochoro. Here we meet up with the guide and the rest of the hiking group. We transfer to Prionia, from where we begin our hike, at an altitude of 1,100 metres. The route from Prionia to Spilios Agapitos mountain hut is the most widely used hiking trail on Mount Olympus and part of the E4 European Path. Prionia is the highest point accessible by car. The biggest part of this hike goes through thick forests of pine, beech and fir trees, and is in good condition. We make our way up to an altitude of 2,100 metres and reach the mountain hut Spilios Agapitos.

Trekking Hellas offers an array of tours and activities in Mt. Olympus and all over Greece. Also take a look at our Orlias Gorge Canyoning and Hike Northern Greece!
