About the Guru

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.

About the Tour

Hymettus Mountain is within sight of the city center of Athens. With its summit just above 1000 m and a plethora of marked trails among 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 675 m. 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 East Attica with the airport and vineyards. On the way back, we will enter the Cueva de los Murcielagos 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 peaceful atmosphere above Athens.

Una excursion unica. Con unas vistas increibles de la ciudad desde el monte Hymettus. (excursion de 3h en total) Mi madre y yo dudabamos en coger una excursion de "montaña" pero merecio totalmente la pena, Angelos es un guia excelente que tiene en cuenta el ritmo de cada uno para subir y bajar el monte. Es muy detallista y nos regalo una foto de polaroid en la cima, donde nos explico cosas de la ciudad. Sin duda, si vais con un poco de tiempo haced esta excursion.

Response from Angelos
