Welcome on Mount Olympus Summits 360° project

I have been in many places on Olympus mountain in my teens, especially at low altitudes. Later, I started to walk on its trails each time a little bit more, following each time another path and facing a new side of the mountain. The last ten years ascents are very common due to work commitments but also relaxing weekends with friends.

I am always waiting for the day that I will put my bag in the back and, alone or with company, will head to the mountain. I am always amazed from Stefani first glance, always standing for a while at the top of Skourta summit to gaze at the neck. Where clouds hide the path for a while, to reveal it later together with a beautiful view... I always smile reaching the plateau of the Muses and I always make a circle around myself when I get on a high peak, gazing from there the rest of the world.

Many times, I have found myself thinking that a lot of my friends and people that I know, didn't have the opportunity to climb Olympus mountain yet. One day, while driving in my car I had this idea about showing the mountain to the world and then the project came up! My intention is to show a little of its beauty to all those who have not yet visited Olympus mountain yet and my own point of view to those who are frequent visitors.
