The best way to escape your daily routine is to go out on the mountains and enjoy some magnificent views to the white Greek mountains! Vasilitsa is located on Pindos mountains, just behind mount Olympus. At 2000m. altitude you can expect some great views to the snow mountains! Snowshoeing is the best way to explore the trails in the mountain with your friends!
Snowshoeing is literally for everyone! No previous experience is required! You just need to walk wearing the comfortable snow shoes that will ease your hiking on the mountain... You do not need to be extremely sporty as well, as the group levels are adjusted to everybody's capacity. All you have to do is first enjoy this healthy activity, the smell of the snow on the mountain... and in the end some tea or local tsipouro in a chalet to warm up!
There are different routes to explore. Depending on the weather conditions your guide will choose the most appropriate. All of them are located in the mountain of Vasilitsa.
The Silent Forest - A beautiful tour inside the forest, to learn about the legends and the history of the area. You will hike on deep snow until you reach the small stream valley, where you can rest, drink some hot tea or indulge in the local drink known as “tsipouro”.
The frozen Alpine lake - At this tour you will walk on alpine terrain, over the frozen lake. You will go jumping and running on snow, while enjoying the views around Vasilitsa. The tour will end in a comfortable chalet on the ski resort!
Moonshine & Sunrise - It is a unique experience to see the sun rising, behind Mt. Olympus, at 2000m high! You will hike at Baldouma peak, having great views to the east and enjoy the beautiful sunshine, with a warm coffee! Under the moonlight, walk on snow! You will hike in the night like the wolves… You will feel the incredible feeling as you walk in the Greek mountains, a place looking like… Alaska! All the walks are easy and for everyone!
