Hiking the Enipeas gorge on Mt. Olympus

A beautiful daily trekking activity, in the heart of the famous Greek mountain

Prionia – Old Monastery of Agios Dionisios – Holy Cave - Mills- Litochoro.

We started our hike from Prionia, at an altitude of 1.100 meters. The route from Prionia to the Old Monastery of Agios Dionisios goes parallelly to Enipeas stream and we had to pass over several nice wooden bridges. On the way, met the waterfall of Enipeas with its gorgeous natural pool and we enjoyed swimming and taking photos.  

Later, we reached the monastery of Agios Dionysios, which was destroyed in World War II by German troops. It lies hidden inside a dense pine forest. After 2 hours of walking, we arrived at the cave of Agios Dionisios, the place where the saint used to live as a hermit.

We finished our tour at the Mills of Litochoro, just outside Litochoro, at 300 m. The hike of moderate difficulty took about 5 hours to complete and out dear travelers enjoyed every minute of it. You can find more info by clicking here.
