Mount Olympus Things to Do
The peak of Olympus is 2918m above sea level. It takes about an hour to get up and it requires preparation and alertness. The views are rewarding.
An old and historical monastery hidden in the dense vegetation of the southern part of Mount Olympus. It's worth a visit.
At the foothills of the highest Greek mountain, this monastery stands out for its beauty and relics. There is a small cave-church within walking distance.
On the road to the peak, this is the first and largest organized shelter. Food here is great and the view already amazes.
The trail to Orlias is a fantastic experience, and the waterfalls at the end of it are just refreshing. Families with children will love it.
Old Vrontou Village
Old Vrontou is a village wiped from the map by Nazi bombardments. Great for pictures or excursion in the nature for some distinctive pictures.
At the carpark begins a path to the mountain leading also to waterfalls. The highlight, however, is a taverna with delicious traditional food.
