Having had an attempt to climb Mytikas peak the highest point on Mount Olympus thwarted by snow and lack of visibility five years ago, I wasn’t going to take any chances and gave myself an extra day there just in case. I had previously climbed to within 100 vertical meters of the summit last time so I didn’t need to do a great deal of research regarding the route or planning transport. I simply rechecked train and bus times online and after finding reasonably priced flights I once again headed to Thessaloniki.
