Welcome to Mount Olympus

Mount Olympus

Towering above ancient Dion, about 48 miles (77km) south of Thessaloniki is Greece's highest mountain, Mount Olympus, home to the famed Gods of Greek mythology. The mountain is rich in tree and plant life, supporting more than 1,700 species, some very rare. The main village in the area is Litohoro, which is connected to Athens and Thessaloniki by bus and train. It is possible to climb the highest peak in about two days, without experience or special equipment, along numerous mountain trails.
