I remember myself escaping to the nature since my early childhood. Visiting mountains, hills, rivers, lakes or just the city park has been my favorite. Hiking is a hobby which has taken me to the highest peaks of Greece. I also do trail running for the past three years. Having studied Business Administration, I balance work and hobbies in the best possible way.

Tour description

Hymettus Mountain is in view of the city center of Athens. With its summit just above 1,000m and a plethora of marked trails through pine trees, it attracts visitors from all over Attica and beyond.

The tour starts from the north entrance of Hymettus next to the Aghios Ioannis monastery . In about 1.5 hours, the group climbs to the north peak with an elevation of 675m. There is a spectacular view of all the metropolitan areas of Athens with the most interesting points of interest, such as the Acropolis, Lycabettus, Piraeus, the Olympic Stadium , the surrounding mountains, as well as Eastern Attica with the airport and vineyards. On the way back, we will enter the Cueva de los Bats where you will have the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful landscape with stalactites and stalagmites.

Are you in good physical condition to walk for 3 hours? Then don't wait! Put on your sports/hiking shoes and enjoy this unique tour in a relaxed and calm atmosphere above Athens.

Angelos, was very kind and approachable and allowed the group to feel comfortable while keeping the tour/hike of hymettus mountain interesting. The weather was great and the summit view was worth the steep climb through the trails. You could see Angelos pride of Athens during the talks about Athenian history and mythology.

Angelo has a deep knowledge of the mountain routes and flora. I felt safe exploring the mountain and learnt a lot along the way. The view from the top was out of this world. It was an excellent tour. The best I’ve been on in Europe so far because I love nature walks and hiking. The Bat cave was incredible too.

Just AMAZING! It was a little more demanding than I expected but 100% wothy. Angelo is an incredible guide. He will tell you stories and myths about the city. He knows every plant and three, we ate arbutus along the way and the view from the top is unforgettable!
