Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at 6am at a convenient and central location in Neoi Poroi. We chose for you, between several routes to follow up, the best way to the top of mount Olympus, the Christaki Trail. Embark on a mountainous route that combines asphalt and rough dirt roads. Reach the top of the route from the south side of Mount Olympus, a charming yet rugged landscape to Christakis, at 7,900ft (2,400m). Take a break as your guide prepares the climbing equipment needed to reach the summit of Mytikas. Follow a well-marked trail for one hour to Kakoskala. Get ready to make the final ascent. Scramble up this route, which is demanding and requires a high degree of difficulty. Reach a height of 9,600ft. (2918m) at the top of Mytikas, where we will sign the mountaineer's book. Spend some free time relaxing before returning down the mountain. Take the awaiting vehicle back to town. Arriving back in town at approximately 6pm.

    My first mountain climb ever and it was an amazing experience! Thomas from Xtremeway Outdoors was a phenomenal guide and I would highly recommend him! We were inexperienced mountain climbers-making this our first actual summiting of a mountain face and we were greatly appreciative to have Thomas' knowledge and wisdom on tackling the mountainside! Some parts of the mountain can get VERY sketchy so if you are an amateur mountain climber like we were, I would definitely recommend getting a guide but well worth the sketchy trek!
