Tour overview

Ski Touring on Mount Parnassos is a ski exploration in the alpine zone of Parnassos. A unique winter activity suitable for those who are not afraid to sweat, love aerobic sports and skiing in immaculate snow!

  Ski Touring on Mount Parnassos Highlights:

  • Discover Greek mountains and mainland Greece
  • Enjoy winter wild natural landscapes
  • Conquer Mount Parnassos summits while enjoying stunning views to the sea

Our experienced team offers unforgettable backcountry ski tours on all slopes and peaks of Mount Parnassos! Due to its geomorphology (70% of the country is covered by mountains) and sunny winter weather Greece is an ideal destination for ski touring! Depending on snow coverage, we can enjoy backcountry skiing on northern routes with stunning views to the plain of central Greece or southern ones looking over the Corinthian Gulf! Greece combines mountain and sea wherever you find yourself!!

Experienced skiers will have the chance to ski on a impressive route crossing the Liakoura summit. We ski by the “Perforated Rock”, which the local legend has it, was pierced by the Python, while trying to escape from the arrows of God Apollo.

Let us take in the beauty and tranquility while skiing Mount Parnassos! A mere 2 hour drive from Athens and only 30’ from the famous Ancient site of Delphi!
