In this 10 days excursion, we will have the chance to ski or board in the most incredible mountains of Greece! First of all, we are going to visit Mount Olympus. The most famous mountain in Greece, as it is the highest and was believed to be the abode of the ancient Gods! 

It is only 5 km away from the sea and with a height of 2918 meters is the highest in Greece. But it's not only those two that make it special. The dense vegetation that reaches up to 2300 meters, many ravines, and the alpine landscape with the prominent throne of Zeus and the background of the blue Aegean, make it a very special ski destination. We will spend on this mountain 5 days to feel its majority.

Our second destination is the Pindus mountain range, the largest mountain range in Greece, 160km long! And with the second-highest mountain in Greece located here, mount Smolikas with an elevation of 2637m
