Rock Climbing and Hiking

from 80

Rock climbing & Hiking in the Tempi valley or on Mt. Kissavos (Ossa).


First option, at Tempi valley, Lower Olympus (Best in late spring, June & September).

We meet at the Rapsani railway stationTransfer to the wine growing village of Rapsani on the slopes of Lower Olympus and the starting point of our walk, where a nearby impressive limestone rock face is inviting you to try, probably your first vertical steps. This is a unique spot with great views lower down towards the Pinios river and the western part of the Tempi valley. Climbing here, one experiences a great combination of physical and mental effort. The right body placement and focused concentration on the next move, will give unexpected very pleasant results, under the instruction and supervision of our guides.

After this amazing game in this vertical world ends, we get ready and set off for our hike, following a path, which takes us along and over the cliffs of the Tembi Valley and almost down the Pinios River. This is a high crossing of the valley with stunning views of the river down below and Mt. Kissavos on the opposite side of the valley, all the way along the hike. We will have a lot to talk about, while we hike along this historical valley, as the place holds amazing stories and myths from the very – very old times… The walk will take 2.30’ to 3.00’ hours, easy. 

Price: 90.00€ p.p.

Min age 12 – 13 years.

Total activity’s duration: From the time we meet to the “ready to go home” time, 6.00′ to 7.00′ hours.



Second option for the same combined activity, aimed  for comleete first timers in climbing and younger ages, Mt. Kissavos (Ossa).

We meet at Karitsa Village or Arioprino location. Transfer to the Seloma location at about 1000m (about 20′ to 30′ by road from the meeting points), at a very beautiful spot with great views of the highest summit of the mountain and all the way round from the north west, north and north east. Here we do the rock climbing – a very nice site for old and young.

After that and a good break, we move by road to the Kanalos location at 1500m, dominated by the highest summit. From here, we start our hike to the summit via its east ridge, with stunning panoramic views of the region including the Aegean Sea, the Plain of Thessaly, Mount Olympus, Mount Pelion, the Pinios river delta and in clear weather – not very unlikely – the huge pyramid of Mt. Athos emerging out of the sea in the very distance to the east.  Return via the same route back to Kanalos. The route takes approximately 4.30’ to 5.30’ hours of moderate and demanding walk.

Price: 80.00 p.p.

Min age 10 – 11 years.

Total activity’s duration: From the time we meet to the “ready to go home” time, 7.30′ to 8.30′ hours.
