DISCOUNTS for 2 and more people!!! Please feel free to contact about details and availability. We'll meet up at Thessaloniki and drive to Prionia refuge at 1100m - the highest point you can reach by car and the starting point of our hike. We'll explore the ruins of the old monastery of Agios Dionisios. It is hidden in the dense pine forest. After that we will visit the Holy Cave, where Saint Dionysios used to live as a hermit. Another place we will be visiting is a gorgeous Epineas waterfall, where you'll have a chance to swim near it. The water is rather cold, so it is a challenge not for the faint of heart! After spending some time enjoying these magnifficent spots we will head back to Prionia, where we will have lunch (Bean soup/Greek salad/Tea from Mt Olympus). This is a moderate difficulty hike of about 12 kms. Even though there won't be climbing elements, be prepared for some physical activity. Guide will make sure that everyone goes in a comfortable pace, so don't worry. It's not a competition. Duration of the trek might vary depending on guests' speed. Please note that we are not going on top of Mt Olympus!
