Mytikas the highest summit in Greece and on mount Olympus! A destination in itself! In only one day you have the opportunity to experience the awe that Daniel-Baud Bovy, Fred Boissonnas and Christos Kakalos felt when they first summited the highest point of Greece.

The feeling they experienced was reflected in the characteristic phrase written by Boissonnas: “We have arrived! The first people, after the Gods left “.

Even if your time is limited, you can easily and safely find yourself to the top, where history and mythology are intertwined and make you feel like a part of them.

Around Mytikas, ravines and precipices, sometimes hiding in the fog and sometimes offering you incomparable views!
