Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece and the second highest mountain in the Balkans.

Located in north-central Greece, in the Olympus Range, Olympus was notable in Ancient Greek Mythology as the home of the Twelve Olympians.

The Mount Olympus region is protected in Olympos National Park, which includes over 50 peaks, as well as deep gorges, and exceptional biodiversity. The highest peak Mytikas, is 9,570 ft (2,917 m).

The park features mountain refuges and various hiking and climbing routes. The usual starting point is the town of Litochoro, in the eastern foothills of the region.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
