The Office of Athletics organized an Outdoor Recreation 2-day trip to Mt. Olympus on May 26-27, 2018.
30 participants enjoyed long hikes into the heart of the mythical mountain and the warm hospitality of the Petrostrouga refuge.
The trip was a dream come true for all participants, but especially for the Study Abroad students, who were taught the ancient Greek mythology at school, and they finally stepped on the Gods-residing peaks mentioned in their books. Mt. Olympus was graceful enough to allow us to enjoy the springtime with relatively high temperatures and blossomimg flowers and trees everywhere. We heard the call of the wild and we all made a promise to return up there.
