Activity description

Hike to the mythical, tallest mountain of Greece, Mount Olympus, and dive in the beautiful Orlias waterfalls.

Hiking through glades and crossing rocky slopes, you will find your way following secret, challenging paths surrounded by nature. The water element in the area will leave you speechless, as you admire the beauty of it all: a waterfall of up to 20 meters (you can jump and dive in if you’re not afraid), the impressive nature pools of Orlias, and, of course, Mount Olympus’s enchanting atmosphere.

The crystal-clear greenish-looking water illuminates the leafy present flora, waterfalls appear in the middle of rocks and slopes, and the dramatic 20-meter tall Red Rock, meaning Kokkinos Vrachos in Greek, appears out of the sudden. During this 5-hour activity, you’ll also come across the natural pools of Orlias, and they are not to be missed!

What to expect
Starting from Karitsa at your arranged meeting time, you will follow a circular route of 7.5 km, starting at an altitude of 260m. After hiking for 1-1.5 hours, you will reach an altitude of 700m and admire the green scenery. Soon after, Kokkinos Vrachos will magically appear in front of your eyes and you will be able to take photos and/or dive. After an hour of hiking, you will meet the natural pools of Orlias.
