You'll meet your guide in Litochoro's square and drive to the trailhead at Prionia. From here, you'll begin your hike through the forest until you're above the tree line. It's here that you'll get your first view of Mount Olympus - the mountain of the gods. You'll reach Spilios Agapitos Refuge in the afternoon where you can relax and enjoy a hot meal.
After an early breakfast at the refuge, you'll start hiking towards the high summit, known as Mytikas. The climb involves some scrambling - but don't worry, your guide will provide all the safety gear and be with you every step of the way. Once you have spent some time on the summit, you'll head towards Musses Plateau and settle down in your accommodation for the evening.
After enjoying a truly spectacular sunrise, you'll head back to the trailhead at Prionia, via the north-east trail.
Your guide will transfer you back to Litochoro town.

We recommend you fly into Thessaloniki Airport (SKG).
It takes around 1.5 hours to get to Litochoro from Thessaloniki Airport. The quickest way is to take a taxi and this is usually a good option if you are travelling with a few other people (typically costs around 125 EUR). Alternatively you can take the airport bus to Thessaloniki station (around 45 minutes) and then the train to Litochoro (1 hour and around 5 EUR). From Litochoro station it is a short taxi ride to the main square (10 EUR).
