A round hiking tour is ahead of us today; start and end of the tour will be the small church of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity). Fine pathways will lead us through a part of the forest up to the mountain shelter of Krevatia. The higher we hike, the better is the natural view of the Olympus area. At the “Rema tou Papa”, a small stream that we are about to cross, we fill our bottles with fresh, crystal clear mountain water and we continue on our hiking tour to the high plateau of the mountain shelter Krevatia in an altitude of 1,009 m. The view is absolutely breathtaking. At the same time, we enjoy our lunch and then we hike back to the start of our tour. Reaching the small church of Agia Triada, we admire its frescos and finally we drive back to the Olympic Riviera.
Drive through Larissa and the Thessalian plain to Kalambaka. The view of the gigantic and impressive rock formation of Meteora at the end of the plain is something truly amazing. Byzantine monasteries are hanging from the cliffs like secure fortresses of the holy heavens. First stop of our dive into the fantastic scenery of this strangely-formed landscape is the Monastery of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity). Of course, we will beforehand cast a glimpse over the walls of the monastery. Infatuated with the aromas of wild herbs, we hike down an old mule pathway. Along our way, we find vineyards and thousands of olive trees, while the pathway leads us to traditional stone houses located at the foot of majestic rock falls. These stone monuments are surrounded by cypress and cedar forests. At the area of Kalambaka we will enjoy our lunch. In the late afternoon, we drive on to Epirus and reach the Zagoria villages in the evening. 4 overnight stays at the village of Monodendri.
