    Ελατοχώρι Πιερίας

    ■ Πώς Το Ελατοχώρι απέχει 95 χλμ. από Θεσσαλονίκη, 460 χλμ. από Αθήνα και 28 χλμ. από Κατερίνη. Φτάνοντας στην πρωτεύουσα της Πιερίας ακολουθείτε την παλαιά εθνική οδό Κατερίνης-Ελασσόνας ανεβαίνοντας σε υψόμετρο 850 μ.
    ■ Πότε Για σκι στο Χιονοδρομικό Κέντρο Ελατοχωρίου (8 χλμ. απόσταση, www.elatohori-ski.gr/). Ο διθέσιος αναβατήρας «Δίας» (μήκους 1.287 μ.) μπορεί να ανεβάσει 1.200 σκιέρ ανά ώρα στη μέτριας και μεγάλης δυσκολίας πίστα «Κλειώ» και στην πολύ εύκολη «Ερατώ», κατάλληλη για αρχαρίους. Ολες οι πίστες έχουν ονόματα μουσών καθότι είμαστε στα Πιέρια Ορη. Ελάτε για σλάλομ, δράση με snowboard ή για après ski χαλάρωση στο σαλέ με μια κούπα ζεστής σοκολάτας. Info www.elatohori.net/
    ■ Must H γευστική πανδαισία με αγριογούρουνο, χοιρινό με μανιτάρια, ζυγούρια στη σούβλα με την τέχνη του ψήστη του μερακλή στην ταβέρνα «Τζιβαέρι» του Γιάννη Παπαβραμίδη στο Παλιό Ελατοχώρι. Μετά το φαγοπότι, χαλάρωση με ναργιλέ δίπλα στο τζάκι!
    ■ Tip Δοκιμάστε να φάτε κοτζάμ Ναπολέοντα και δεν θα το μετανιώσετε, γλυκό παραδοσιακό της περιοχής των Πιερίων με φύλλο χειροποίητο ανοιγμένο με τον πλάστη από τα χεράκια της κυρα-
    Γιαννούλας στο ξενοδοχείο «Μύθος» (www.hotelmythos.gr/),
    ■ Πού Ενδεικτικά, «Atrion Highland Hotel» (www.atrionhotel.gr/), «Σεμέλη Mountain Resort» (www.semeliresort.gr/), «Πιερίων Μούσες» (www.pierionmusses.gr/), «Αρχοντικό Αλθαία» (6997263064),

    Mt Olympus National Park

    Just a few steps from the centre of Litohoro is this National Park, so it would be a shame to leave the place and not visit it.

    Take a pleasant walk in the National park, follow the path in the rock and ardmire the nature. When you get to the end of your path, you'll see the so-called Aphrodite's bathroom. Well, there's nothing special about it if you ask me, but the nature's simply wonderful.

    Litohoro

    the Litohoro church

    24km from Katerini there's this small town of Litohoro.

    Litohoro is a special place because it's located just beneath Mt. Olympus. It's in fact the starting point for those wishing to climb the legendary mountain.

    Pieria district, with Katerini as its capital, offers a variety of winter sport facilities as it is surrounded by two mountains, Pieria mt & Olympos.
    At Elatohori one can find a medium size ski resort, 8 km above the village.
    At Pieria there are two mountain huts, at Milia and at Sarakatsana.
    Olympos has more convenient facilities for all age and laziness groups (Greeks do not walk so much, so there is good access to most locations by car...)

    Olympic trekking...

    Top of Greece

    If you like mountains and not only beaches, try Mt. Olympos, the home of the ancient Greek Gods. You have to get to Litohoro (by car, bus or train & taxi), a big village some 100 kms southwest of Thessaloniki. From Litohoro take a taxi (about 20 euro one way) to 'Prionia', alt. 1500 m. There are well maintained paths from 'Prionia' to the 3 mountain hostels up in Olympos, two of them are open from June to September.
