Olympus Mythical Trail > EN > Getting There



There is a regular bus service to Katerini and a local train service (3 trains daily in each direction) to Thessaloniki and Larissa where there is an interchange with the main line to Athens. Because Litochoro railway station is about 6 km away from Litochoro and 1 km from nearest bus stop, bus to Katerini is often used to access the train. Taxis are to be found in abundance. For anyone traveling from abroad the best way is to flight to Thessaloniki (preferably) or Athens and then either rent a car to drive to Litochoro or take a bus or train. Driving is very easy and is all on the main highway. Litohoro is 416 Km distant from Athens and 92 Km distant from Thessaloniki.

From Athens or Thessaloniki you can reach Litochoro, Katerini or Larisa by bus (http://www.ktelpierias.gr/) or train (http://www.trainose.gr/) and from there you can travel with the local transport.
