Description

By following well-established hiking trails, this trek 'connects' the 12 mountain refuges of Mt Olympus into a single path.

It starts and ends at the Bountolas refuge, located above Litohoro, and goes through both the organized refuges and the more hard-to-reach emergency shelters (Koromilia, Petrostrouga, Krevatia, Apostolidis, Kakkalos, Agapitos, Laka Christaki, Salatoura, Agios Antonis, Migotzidis, and Livadaki).

The loop path offers an astonishing naturally diverse nature and terrain, along with breathtaking views of the Mountain of the Gods.

A hiker will discover the hidden beauties of Olympus and especially those of the south and west side, which despite the increased traffic in recent years, are unknown to most visitors.
