Stefani peak

Stefani. Its top is only 8-m under the one of Mytikas (2,909-m. altitude).

Mytikas peak

The highest summit of Greece, Mytikas or Pantheon. Climbing up to the top of the gods mountain (2,917-m) is not an easy task. In winter, when the mountain is covered with snow, it becomes even difficult for alpinists. The dream of each Olympus mountaineer is to get a photograph near the metallic Greek flag on the top. Mytikas was conquered on
August 2, 1913 by the Swiss Frederic Boissonas and Daniel Baud Bovy and their climbing mate Christos Kakalos, the veteran Olympus guide from Litochoro.

Profitis Elias peak

The highest worship place of Greece is the stone tabernacle of Profiti Elia on the so-called peak of Olympus, at 2.803m height. It is a small, one-space church which, according to the tradition, was built by St. Dionysus in the 16th century, and every July, on the celebration day of the Prophet, monks of the neighbouring monastery go up to the peak and have a Mass. Although no archaeological relics have been found, it is believed that the church was built on an ancient top sanctuary, as there was one on the opposite peak of St. Anthony.

Skolio peak

Skolio top, north-west of Mytikas, at 2,911 metres, six meters down the highest top.
