Kissavos is the eternal opponent of Olympus, despite  its geological continuation, from which it is separated by the impressive valley of Tempi. Rapid torrents, waterfalls and dense forests of firs, beeches, oaks and chestnuts characterize its eastern slopes and create a unique aesthetic forest, having joined the NATURA 2000 protection network, as an area of exceptional natural beauty. Although it is  a small mountain, you can find a wide variety of plants and trees!

In this place the sea embraces the mountain, torrents while lakes and rivers alternate with fir forests, beech, chestnut and plane trees and the gorges supply the sea with gurgling waters. Here the legends are intertwined with the stories, this is where Asklepios found most of his herbs, here it is believed that the mythical hero Hercules drew his last breath and this is where h the two mythical giants Otos and Efialtis, tried to reach the gods. A unique experience! Mountain, sea, waterfalls and lakes in a pristine landscape!

Our program starts with the ascent to the top of Kissavos. We will pass through the traditional village of Spilia and we will head for the mountain refuge. There we will find a spring with fresh cool water to fill our flasks and we head for the top! From the top you have a panoramic view, in the west of the valley of Larissa, in the south of the valley of Agia, in the east of the sea where the slopes of Kissavos form coves and in the north you see Olympus standing majestically in front of you. Gorges, ravines and rivers stretch in front of us, and somewhere in there is hidden the waterfall of Calypso
