  1. Day 1:
    Departure from Thessaloniki. Arrive in Prionia and starting point for the Trail of Silence around 14:30-15:00, to the shelter Spilios Agapitos (2,100m – Zolota). Route duration: about 3.5 – 4.0 hours (for beginners). Overnight at the shelter, rest with good food and good company.
  2. Day 2:
    Departure from the shelter to the peaks (Mytikas for those who are capable and Skala – Skolio or Plateau of the Muses for the rest). Route duration: about 3-4 hours. Late at noon arrival at the shelter Giosos Apostolidis (2,697m). Total walking time: 5-6 hours. Rest and close afternoon walk in the surrounding peaks (Profitis Ilias or Kakkalos shelter, on the other side of the Plateau – a hot chocolate or a tsipouro in this hot shelter is a must!). Depending on the weather, we can try to reach the top at noon, starting from the shelter on the plateau of Muses. If the weather does not allow it (rain, fog, etc.), we can hike to the nearby peak of Prophet Elias.
  3. Day 3:
    Relaxed breakfast, lunch at the shelter and return to Petrostrouga shelter and Gortsia location. Our return will take about 5 hours.
    We reiterate that three days is an ideal choice for a more relaxed climb, as well as in case of bad weather and “closed” weather, we have the opportunity to reach the high peaks either on Saturday morning, or Saturday at noon, or even on Sunday in the morning!
    NOTE: The top is not an end in itself! We will approach the top of Mytikas only if the weather allows and only those who are able to attempt it. The tour leader has the right not to allow the climb to the top of a person who either does not follow the instructions or considers that he is not able to complete the attempt to the top. Everyone’s safety is everything!
