Holidays in
Litochoro

At the foot of the gods

Litochoro, a traditional Greek village perched between the mountains and the sea, is located at the foot of Mount Olympus (the mythical abode of the 12 Olympian gods of the Ancient Greek world and the highest mountain in Greece). A Unesco Biosphere Reserve, Mount Olympus is home to hundreds of endemic and rare species of flora and fauna, making it a popular tourist destination for climbers and nature lovers alike. Hikers will love exploring this beautiful mountain with its lush vegetation and rivers, and there are trails for every level of ability.

Litochoro holidays are near the water, so you can spend your days on the beaches of Variko, Gritsa and Plaka, too. Meanwhile, in the picturesque town, there are plenty of tavernas and cafés along its narrow lanes where you can fuel up on delicious, hearty food after a day of trekking or swimming. Alternatively, on holidays to Litochoro you can explore the many historic monuments, chapels and monasteries in the surrounding area.

Your Litochoro questions, answered

Litochoro is a year-round destination. In summer, you can take advantage of the sea, while winter brings snow, which blankets the town and surrounding mountains.

Adrenaline junkies will have a complete blast in Litochoro. There are plenty of opportunities to go canyoning, mountain biking, off-roading and hiking through the mountains.

Litochoro has plenty of tavernas serving traditional dishes from this Macedonian region. Being in the mountains, the food is a little heavier than in other parts of Greece – think meat, cheese and pies.
