Hiking Mt Olympus!

When you’re thinking about the most iconic mountains of the world, I’m pretty sure that the Mt Olympus, located in Greece, has a spot in your list! Not only is it a geographically impressive peak, rising straight from the Aegean Sea to a height of 2,917 m, but it’s also one of great mythological importance.


The gods were said to come together on the highest summit, Mytikas,where they could actually determine the fate of the mortals they ruled. Today, an estimated 10,000 people climb the peak annually, though far fewer attain the ultimate summit of Mytikas.

Olympus is covered in various rocky peaks, but the most famous are Skolio, Mytikas and Stefani. Skolio is the easiest to ascend, Mytikas is harder and is the highest point, and Stefani is in between the two in terms of difficulty and elevation. Skolio is the goal for casual hikers, and Mytikas for more skilled mountaineers.
