We continue our journey towards our starting point of our hiking, the old Monastery of St. Dionysios in Olympus. St Dionysios of Mount Olympus is probably the most beloved monastery in the region Pieria, a historical and touristic monument, visited by many. The old monastery was founded by St Dionysios in 1542, on Olympus Mountain, at an altitude of 850 m, at 18 km distance from Litochoro village. It has been an important educational and spiritual center and took an active part in the Revolt in 1878 against the Turks. It was destroyed by the German Nazi in 1943 but nowadays the monks succeeded in reconstructing the main church of the Monastery and their goal is to fully reconstruct the monastery, based to the original design. From that point we start our light hiking at a comfortable pace, through a dense beech tree forest that gradually changes into a beautiful boreal pine forest. Along the way, we will take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape and enjoy the fresh mountain air. We will stop at designated rest areas along the trail to catch our breath and take in the beautiful scenery. At our final point of the hiking route, we will visit the Sacred Cave of Saint Dionysios of Olympus. Tucked under an overhanging rock at the top of the Enipeas Gorge, lies a large cavity housing the chapel and a holy water spring. There was the hermitage of St Dionysios. This is the return point to our hiking journey. Return to our bus and transfer to our hotel at Olympus Riviera to rest gain our powers. In the evening following our delightful dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, we’ll visit the vibrant heart of the 1st Olympus Adrenaline & Nature Festival—the main kiosk area in Litochoro village.
