Also known as the Mountain of the Gods, Olympus, one of Europe’s National Parks, draws as magnet hikers from all over the world since springtime starts at May and its trails are easy accessible. Hike the ancient pilgrims paths to Greece’s highest mountain and climb your way up to the mountain’s peak Mytikas at 2918 m. Ride your mountain bike through traditional villages and put your riding skills to the test with summit to sea downhill trails. Grab your sea kayak and paddle against the Aegean waves and last but not least, suit up to explore the mountain’s flora and fauna by canyoning through its gorges. Prepare for your next day’s adventure while relaxing on endless beaches and writing down Mediterranean recipes to impress your friends back at home.
Insider’s Tip: Do not forget to pay a visit at Dion, sanctuary of Zeus and last stop of Great Alexander before embarking on his Asian Campaign. In the summer the Olympus Festival kicks off with athletic events and performances at the ancient theater of Dion.
