Mountain climbing

Mountain climbing In Greece
Bougatinas Mountain Refuge, Proti

Along national hiking Route 04, the mountain-climbing shelter, run by the Serres branch of the Hellenic Alpine Club (EOS), sits at an altitude of 1956 metres on Mt Pangeo.

Lefka Ori (White Mountains)

A UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves site, the White Mountains offer an incredible opportunity for the hiker in both winter and summer. Generally regarded for its fantastic hiking, the White Mountains provide an ideal habitat for bird lovers and nature enthusiasts looking for species of large birds like Eagles and Vultures, the Golden Eagle and the Red-Billed Chough.

Mt. Dirfys

Evia’s tallest mountain is logically also the best spot for mountain climbing throughout the island. Reaching 1743 m., the climb to its summit is considered more of a challenging hike, and its unique position between the Euboean Gulf and Aegean Sea causes it to experience weather similar to that of much higher altitudes, causing inexperienced climbers to turn back due to conditions. Expect snow in winter and a cool climate in the warmer months.

Nature in Livaditis

The paths of Livaditis, a lovely mountain village some 50km away from Xanthi, in the western part of the region offers sign-posted hiking paths which are connected to the E6 hiking trail. The area offers climbing, skiing and mountain biking, embedded with nature’s splendour and a spectacular waterfall. The nature continues around the village of Evrimanthos where fauna and flora compete to engulf the senses. Mushrooms are highly prized in this area and there is a large variety to discover. Also visit the Chaintous forest and the area of Arkoudorema (Bear Stream), a true ecological paradise. In June the Sarakatsan festival showcases local customs of these people that form a strong part of the area’s character.

Nestos River and Nestos Delta

The Nestos river has attracted eco-visitors for decades, a perfect locale for hiking, horseback riding, birdwatching, mountain climbing, canoeing, cycling, kayaking and rappelling. These activities in the land of Orpheus take place in magical corners of the Xanthi region like Galani, Komnina, Kromniko, Livadero, Stavroupolis, Toxotes and others. The Nestos Delta in Xanthi, where the river meets the sea, is also another enchanting place with dreamy sceneries. Worth nothing too is the area of Abdera which hosts a unique ecosystem of lakes, lagoons and valuable wetlands.

Piperi Islet

Check out the Piperi islet, at the northern side of Serifos, which has the ideal topography for mountain climbing.

Shelter Olympia Lailias

Just 3km away from the Lailias Ski Centre, the Hellenic Alpine Club runs this shelter at an altitude of 1500 metres on Mt Vrondos. It also runs a summer camp for children 8-15 years old with activities taking place in the Lialias Forest. (Operated by HAC Serres)

Virgin Forest of Frakto

The virgin forest of Frakto is located on the highest peak of the Rodopi mountains, 1,953 meters high. It is said to be the only virgin forest in Greece and considered one of the most important in Europe due to its large ecological and historical value. It lies a protected area so visitors are kindly asked to respect the forest.
