The alternative tourism office Salonica view organizes a day trip and hiking in the natural paradise, River Orlia.

A few words about our trip:

We will start early at dawn by bus from Thessaloniki following the National Road Athens - Thessaloniki for just over an hour, until the exit Litochoro - Dion. From there in just 20 minutes we will leave the bus near the chapel of Agios Konstantinos and Eleni where we will take a breath of fresh air in the beautifully landscaped area near the church.

So full of energy we will start our wonderful journey to the waterfalls and the pedestals in the enchanting Rema Orlia!

Along the way, there are two waterfalls and three pedestals. Approximately after the first 500 meters of the route, we will see the first waterfall where we will have the opportunity to highlight our photographic talent in the wonderful landscape that nature offers us generously. In the continuation of our route, we will meet the next waterfall, which is bigger.

The route is circular, about 6 km, in a natural paradise at the foot of the imposing Olympus.

After the completion of the hike, which will last about 5 hours in total, we will head by bus to the village of Vrontou where we will replenish the calories we burned with delicious delicacies before our return to Thessaloniki.

Points of interest:

River Orlia:
An easily accessible natural paradise with waterfalls, lakes, and turquoise crystal clear waters. It is located on the northern slopes of Mount Olympus near the historic village of Dion.

According to legend, the river Vafyras or Elikonas or Orlias got its name from the buzz that is heard as its water falls. The river Orlias is an ancient river of Pieria where it entered the ground and came to the surface again a few meters outside the village of Dion, where its waterfalls are formed, refusing to purify the Maenades, raging women of Pieria, where they wanted to rinse in it their hands from the blood of Orpheus.
