A walk in the path of Gods leads you to Litohoro, a small town located at the base of Mount Olympus, Greece’s highest mountain and home of the twelve Gods of Greek mythology. Litohoro is a popular destination for those wishing to climb Mount Olympus. An extended coastal area known as Plaka Litohorou is located east of the town where a wide range of restaurants and cafes are found offering astonishing views of the mountain.
Olympus is rich in trees and plant life, supporting over 1700 species, some very rare. You may need warm clothes, even in the summer. During the tour, you will visit the Archaeological Park and the Archaeological Museum of Dion, one of the biggest archaeological sites in Greece.
