Having the village of Litochoro as your base, you begin to discover the breath-taking gorge of Enipeas, the most famous Gorge of Olympus.

   The starting point of your tour in the gorge is the position Prionia in the springs of Enipeas, at an altitude of 1.100m. Following a well preserved and adequately marked international path of mountain routes E4, you meet a natural environment that enchants with its dazzling beauty. Dense vegetation with pine, beech, slopes, gorges and ravines, picturesque wooden bridges, running water, ponds with crystal clear water and small waterfalls.

  The Agio Spilaio is of great interest, where Agios Dionysios in Olympus lived secluded, and the monastery of Agios Dionysios (relics of the old monastery are kept, in a renovated building of the 19th century, established on the 16th century and constituted a revolutionary base on various periods).

 The international mountain path E4, after a route of 9 km in length (of moderate difficulty) and a duration of about 4-6 hours, ends in the position “Myloi”, one of the entrances of the National Park of Olympus at an altitude of 400m. From there you arrive at the Litochoro Central Square and delicious dinner follows in a traditional tavern. You spend the night at a hotel in Platamon.
