Legends and ancient Greek mythology abound in Mount Olympus National Park in Greece, making for a unique hiking experience. Just don’t anger the gods, or else! According to Greek mythology, Olympus National Park was home to the ancient 12 Gods. Naturally, Zeus lived on Mount Olympus, the highest peak. There’s something both eery and magical
Old Pantelimonas is an ancient shepherd village with incredible views of Mount Olympus and the Thermaikos Gulf! It’s one of my favourite villages in Greece!
The Meteora Monasteries are the second most important site in Greece AND a UNESCO site. They should be on your bucket list when travelling to Greece.

The Holy Spirit hike in Meteora, Greece, is packed with adventure, breath-taking views, long traditions and a first for me….a monk jail!
Kalarrytes is a Greek village in the Pindos Mountain Range, located in the Epirus region. Its traditional silver and goldsmith trade lives on today in BVLGARI!
