Pantheon or Mytikas peak - that's a destination all by itself and the highest summit in Greece! In just one day, you can experience the awe of Daniel-Baud Bovy, Fred Boissonnas, and Christos Kakalos when they first hit the top. The feeling they felt was reflected in the characteristic phrase that Boissonnas wrote: ''We arrived! The first people, after the Gods left''. Even if your time is limited, you can easily and safely find yourself at the top where history and mythology get together and make you feel like a part of them. Around Mytikas, ravines and dragonflies, hiding for a moment in the fog and in the next, offer you unparalleled views! After the activity, we will make sure that the pictures your eyes captured will follow you for a long time and at the same time, the mythical slopes will awaken unprecedented feelings. Mytikas will no longer be just a postcard picture for you.
