Visit the Mythical Gods at Mount Olympus

At 2,918 meters, the highest mountain in Greece has long been a mythical place, where the Gods of Ancient Greece were said to reside.

These days though, people visit for a legendary experience of their own: partaking in mountaineering and other outdoor pursuits in a location renowned for its fantastic and diverse fauna and flora, surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty.

Litochoro, known as the City of the Gods, is about 100km away from Thessaloniki and the gateway that most people use to explore the mountain.
