The majority of the ascends to Mt.Olympus run from the east side of the mountain. However a less known and equally beautiful route can take you to the summit in 1 day.

Our guide will meet you in Elassona town and with his 4x4 vehicle you will drive up to Christakis refugee. The first 20 Kms until Kalivia Elassonas are tarmac and then dirt road for another 22Km’s (about 50 minutes drive) until you reach the refugee at 2,430 meters altitude. From here we start our ascend (approximately 60-70 minutes), initially on an uphill, part of the E4 (European Trail) path, traversing the peak of Skolio (2,912m) and reaching Skala from where starts the most difficult part of the ascend. We then follow Kakoskala, including a scramble climb until the peak of Mytikas (2,917m). The total duration of this part depends on the number of participants and their experience and may last between 2-4 hours).
