Litochoro to Prionia Trail

Prionia to Spilios Agapitos

The Prionia to Spilios Agapitos Hiking Trail seamlessly continues from the Litochoro–Prionia one, promising an unforgettable adventure. Journeying from the mountain haven of Prionia (1,100 m) to the lofty Spilios Agapitos Refuge (2,040 m), the trail weaves an enchanting narrative as the most frequented hiking path on Mount Olympus. This iconic route, an integral part of the E4 trail system, seamlessly continues from the Litochoro–Prionia path, promising an unforgettable alpine adventure.

Spilios Agapitos to Mytikas

Embark on a thrilling ascent from Spilios Agapitos to Skala and Mytikas, where the trail gradually transforms into a challenging odyssey. Starting from Refuge A (Spilios Agapitos Refuge at 2,040 m), the path takes a steep turn, evolving into a demanding adventure along the Hondro Mesorachi ridge. After approximately 20 minutes, it intersects with the Zonaria path at 2,480 m, and a short distance ahead, the trail veers left towards Stavraities and Agios Antonios.

Spilios Agapitos to Muses Plateau

Known as the Kofto (sharp) trail, this route is a strategic choice for hikers, significantly reducing the overall hiking time to reach Muses Plateau. However, its efficiency comes with a trade-off—this path is characterized by steep inclines and demands a special level of care, especially in sections where snow persists even during times of rare melting. Lower in altitude than the Zonaria path, the Kofto trail unfolds as a challenging yet rewarding journey through the breathtaking terrain of Mount Olympus.

Gortsia to Petrostrouga and Muses Plateau

Embark on this transformative journey, where each step unravels the natural wonders and historical legacies that define the Gortsia to Petrostrouga and Muses Plateau Trail. This is a 14-kilometer odyssey along the Litochoro–Prionia road, where a narrow trail to the right leads to the enchanting Gortsia. This locale marks the starting point of a wide path that winds its way to the spectacular Muses Plateau, home to the renowned refuges of Christos Kakkalos and Giosos Apostolidis.

Muses Plateau to Mytikas

Embark on an awe-inspiring journey from the elevated refuges of Giosos Apostolidis (2,700 m) and Christos Kakkalos (2,640 m) at Muses Plateau, forging ahead toward the towering peaks on a shared path emanating from both refuges. The Muses Plateau to Mytikas Hiking Trail presents both challenges and rewards as you stand atop the legendary Mytikas summit. As you ascend towards the summit of Mytikas, let the allure of the landscape and the thrill of conquering the highest peak of Mount Olympus captivate your senses.
