Peak ascents – Refuge A (Spilios Agapitos) alt. 2.100 m

​(Estimated Walking Time: approx. 4-6 hours)
From there we have two options according to groups fitness and weather conditions: Before reaching the summit we ascent to the main path and crossing the spectacular precipice under the summit of Stefani - the throne of Zeus. We either climb  first Skala at 2.882 meters and then crossing a narrow ridge climb to the summit of  Skolio at 2.911meters( 4-5 hrs walking on narrow paths – some scrambling involved – altitude gain of 800m ). Or if weather permits and there is no snow, we ascent to the main summit - Mytikas (2.917meters), Greece’s highest peak, following a narrow gorge ( it involves about 150 m of scrambling. Then following the sort path which is going to refuge A at 2.100m, they call this shelter “balcony of Greece”   ( 2 hrs walk ). Afternoon at leisure for rest as the next day will be demanding.



Refuge A- Prionia - Ennipeas gorge - Litochoro

​(Estimated Walking Time: approx. 6-7 hours)
Last day will follow the E4 path (international path) until Litochoro, after easy walk we stop at Prionia place.(Prionia is one of the highest point which can be reached by car) Later we enter the Enippeas gorge, passing a cave-chapel and the monastery of St. Dionysus, as well as taking advantage of several swimming opportunities en route in river pools. After about seven hours walking, the gorge opens up on the outskirts of Litochoro. The route is quite tiring, but the varied geological features, the small lakes with crystal waters and the sheer mountain slopes provide a rare beauty and are entirely rewarding.
