The refuge is steeped in history and friendly faces!
Refuge A will always welcome you with a smiling face and a friendly atmosphere. The refuge becomes a place where like-minded folk sit and enjoy each others company, after a long trek up or down the mountain. Able to provide for all your basic needs, the refuge is equipped and ready to serve.
"It is possible that Mount Olympus may have supplied the poets with the hint for saying that Jupiter obtained the kingdom of heaven, because Olympus is the common name both of the mountain and of heaven."
Mount Olympus' routes to the top have two main paths. The main E4 travels through the resting spot of Spilios Agapitos. A 110 bed refuge that stands on a perfect outcrop, overlooking the Enipeas gorge.
We are here to service your needs and requirements during your short stay on our little piece of heaven.
There are many paths that criss-cross around the mountain slopes. They have been listed with degrees of difficulties to help you understand the effort required. From Refuge A itself, there are several routes which are listed here.
Always ask the refuge managers about weather conditions and requirements.
