/ Mount Olympus
i am planning a trip to mt Olympus in march and am wondering if anyone has an idea of the conditions around this time of year?
Tip: don't give any of the local dogs food - they will follow you to the hut, sleep outside your tent (they let us camp outside the hut - but you should still phone and book this), and then bag the summit with you the next day before following you back down, chasing donkeys on the way and barking at your car when you finally drive off.
I think we stayed in the Poseidon Palace hotel in Leptokarya, for one night before and another when we got back down. Can't remember why we chose that one really, but it was very nice.
