Olympus Alpine Guiding, my personal web site, is a link between me and you, who aim in beautiful mountain treks and hikes, rock climbs or ski tours… Before I meet you at the foot of the mountain, I have to tell you that every time I am thinking about the past, I always remember myself as a kid of the mountains.
Now days... I am a qualified Mountain Guide HFMC (according to the A.N 867/37, Nr 19 FEK (A)621-999/28-11-07) also a Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor, member of the Hellenic Federation of Mountaineering & Climbing (H.F.M.C).
I have been born in Katerini - a small town at the foot of Mt. Olympus/Greece - in 1975 and made my ‘first steps’ in the world of mountaineering and climbing at the age of 15. Since then, I have spend and dedicate a great part of my life in the fields of mountaineering, rock and ice climbing and ski mountaineering in Greece and abroad.
Ηundreds of ascents of modern and traditional climbing routes are upon my list all over the Greek mountains (Mt Olympus, Varasova, Meteora, Mt Giona, Mt Vardousia, Mt Pindos) as well as many new routes both on rock and winter ice fields. Many journeys all over the Europe and especially on the Alps, gave me the opportunity of climbing a multitude of classical and outstanding ice/snow and rock routes, in the areas of Mont Blanc, Dolomites, Grand Paradiso, Aosta valley, etc.
As a ski mountaineer i count numerous ski tours and ski mountaineering high level ascents and descents in Greek and European mountains.
I teach mountaineering, rock climbing and ski mountaineering in various Climbing & Mountaineering Associations, also i spend a lot of winter time as a ski instructor at the local ski academy of my region. My passion is to run guiding courses with hikers, mountaineers, climbers and ski tourers all over the Greece and Europe, both in summer and winter period.
I am married to Marisa Antonakopoulou and we have a daughter and two sons together.
I speak Greek, English and French.
