Why we go there?
Very few mountains have kept through history their ancient names: Olympus, Fujiyama, Vesuvius, Demavend, Elbrus and Mt.Khan Tengri. The peak full of history and myths stands at 2917m just only few kilometers from the sea. This is a classic but fantastic route through the east side of the mountain. All the way has a charming touch and the sense of between sea and summit.
Undoubtedly, Mt. Olympus is the highest, most alpine and one of the most beautiful mountains in Greece.
