Well, in 2002 I went to north greece and I hiked to the Olimpus
You start from litohoro and prionia day to next to the refuge. The third day take you to kaki skala and sumit and back to the refuge.
There is a nother optional walk to the second refuge but its not open alwaise.

Second trek is available in greece in zagoria north west but I dont remember so much about it.
There is a viarety of treks there with some Hmong villages around.

1 other more interesting trek is a trek in ethos monestery hilkidiki mountain in peninsula. Its a trek in a monesteries orthodox who has potonomy since the 12th centuary. Entry cost 30 euro and women are not aloud
It is an expirience more interesting and you actually sleep in the monesteries.

In what month were you there?

You know how the weather in the northeast in August?

I have two weeks in August and I'm currently hesitant about Greece, Slovenia or Turkey.

Since I posted the question, Slovenia moved into priority, especially after the friendly new book out on the Slovenian Alps.

I was there in september 2002 and we had rain around the end of the month. I think aigust will be fine.
Slovenia sound more promising--but it has a charm of north greece
Make you feel like walking in history

Looking for a recommendation for a week to 10 days of trekking in Greece.
I would be happy if anyone knows a good website too, he's planning to mid-October, so the weather should play an important role too.
I also prefer scenery more exposed, meaning less forested, so if anyone has an idea of the spread to light what I wrote I'd like to comment on the issue.
All the best and a great weekend.

Hey Tal, certainly has Greece's finest tracks. You can go two or three days in Olympus (track it did).

Recommend the Vikos Canyon area in the country's Northwest region is wrong due to shortness of time almost didn't get a chance to explore on foot, by car.

This friendly site where you can obtain initial information: http://www.greecetravel.com/hiking/vikos.html

If focusing time and place would be may give more specific details.

Admit the information right now, I don't really have any specific questions that you haven't thought of a track.

A question that is bothering me is over (not in) Greece encounter young people (20 +) As Greece wouldn't want to feel alone "shmsbyavi" especially adults or families.

Additionally if there any site (or sites) with comprehensive information about travel, places of accommodation costs and would love to get a link.

And if anyone have any recommendation about cheap flight to Athens can offer.

You didn't mention how you plan to travel (rental car, transportation) and for how long?

There is so much culture of young backpackers in mainland Greece (at least not that I saw), but share the trails themselves can certainly be found.

Basically I plan to travel for two weeks, I thought-a week and a half in Greece itself and the island.

I plan to travel as a backpacker, travelling on public transport, cheap places to sleep (hostels or villages).

What are you looking to do with mainland Greece? Relax on beaches, villages, go-routes

A week is not much time at all if you're using public transport you need to plan where to go, and came to focus on a particular area.

Anyway I wouldn't invest in Athens more than one day.

Really? I haven't seen.

Actually I'm more into taking a trip in Greece itself and wipe in Corfu.

For Olympus and Meteora you can pretty easily to reach with public transport. However, because I traveled with the car, I know its frequency, and how she gets more remote villages-very pretty. Also, I have no idea how to hitch hike there.

However, a week (even for a week) it's very borderline for public transport (and you still want to devote two days.)
Be aware that coming from Northwest Greece to Athens is about a day's drive.

In short, I'd withdraw the intention to reach, and find some beautiful place to relax it two to three days in some decent beaches.
