near Litóchoro, Central Macedonia (Greece)

Climbing Mount Olympus is a non-technical hike, except for the final section from Skala summit to Mytikas summit, which is YDS class 3 rock scramble. It is usually hiked in two days and starts either form town of Litichoro or a closer point – Prione (1050m). First day goal is to reach Refuge “A” - Agapitos on 2100m attitude. From refuge Prione to Refuge “A” is some 7km walk with 1000m ascent. Trail run all the time through forest and can be described as very pleasant. It takes around 3-3.5h and there are two common rest places approximately on each 1/3 of trail. From Refuge “A” to Skala (2866m) is around 5km long hiking trail with 750m ascends and it takes some 2-2.5h to reach it. From Skala to Mytikas is serious rock-climbing section. Descend take same path and it is usually taken same day all way down to Prione. After short break in refuge “A” it is basically almost 2000m of descent. Those who don’t like rock climbing can take trail from Skala to Skolio (2911m).
