Olympus Semi-Guided 1-day

€145 per person

This is a personalized trip designed for those who have the experience and fill confident enough to hike up by themselves and spent the night in one of the lower refuges (Refuge A, Refuge Petrostrouga, Refuge Koromilia), and will require the guidance and experience of a guide for the alpine parts of the mountain they wish to visit.

Being an experienced hiker or not, you should always bare in mind that hiring a guide is a wise measure to increase your safety on your embankment to the higher peaks or the Mouses Plateau, but can also enhance your overall mountain experience, by sharing their local knowledge and its secrets.

The day starts by picking you up on either one of the lower refuges (Refuge A, Refuge Petrostrouga, Refuge Koromilia), then continuing our day on our planned destination and then back to the refuge or to Prionia.

We are flexible in terms of the time and duration spent on your trip and we can match a variety of different levels of fitness or activities requested (hike, fast-hike, trail-run)  in order to offer you a great day experience.

These are some popular routes

Refuge A – Mouses Plateau – Refuge Petrostrouga – Gortsia – Prionia

Refuge A – Mouses Plateau – Refuge A

Refuge A – Mytikas Peak – Refuge A

Refuge Petrostrouga – Mouses Plateau – Refuge A
