  • I loved the challenges and the encouraging guide that helped us through them! We went out of our comforrt zone, what is exactly why we wanted to do it!
  • An experience of a lifetime! Got to explore the hidden gems of mount Olympus in the best way. Breathtaking scenery & a whole lot of fun and adrenaline. Thomas is by far the best guide for this trip. Would highly recommend to anyone planning a visit to mount Olympus!
  • Very experienced guide, nice locations, full support, videos and photos, amazing people in the group.
  • Gorgeous locations for both lagoons and canyoning. Our guide/instructor, Thomas, is very knowledgeable about the area, safe and patient especially when teaching canyoning to beginners such as ourselves. Hands down, the best way to see Mount Olympus and it's beauty.
  • We are 19, 16 and 14, and had an amazing extreme canyoning experience at Mt. Olympus, Greece, with Thomas from Extremeway Outdoors. He was professional, fun and funny, and we would do it again if we could, Lots of thanks, Thomas!
  • Thomas is a fantastic guide! Fun and safety are guaranteed in a great location! Clear explanations before rappels ans jumps, easy to medium level on this site.
  • Thomas is a reliable person, and honest. Which is an important thing when you arrive to a foreign country. He was available and helpful at all times. Was very flexible when we needed to change the dates on the last day, and suggested alternatives. Finally the canyoning trip was amazing ! Thanks a lot ! Strongly recommend using Thomas services !
  • Wonderful guide in a wonderful place for… a wonderful experience!!! Thanks Thomas for those great moments in Orlias Canyon
  • This was a once in a lifetime experience. It was active and fun without requiring additional pre planned gear on our part. We had so much fun! And the pictures and video that were immediately available are priceless.
  • Great Adventure, Great Guide, Great landscape! It was our 3rd Time with Thomas. He is doing a Great Job!
  • Great fun! Highly recommend! One of the best things I have done. Guide was great. It made Olympus mountain a paradise.
  • Was a great trip on a perfect route and with matching challenges for our skills. Better wetsuits for the children would be great as they were a little cold. Many thanks for this wonderful activity!
  • I could not recommend this enough! The perfect way to see the hidden treasures that mount olympus has to offer and create memories of a lifetime! Thomas is a fantastic and energetic guide who makes everyone feel comfortable and he shares his enthusiasm for nature with you.
  • Fantastic experience with Thomas! We enjoyed every moment of the trip. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
  • The canyoning was great, Thomas is an excellent teacher and guide. We had lots of fun! I would highly recommend it to everyone!
  • Beautiful canyon close to Mt. Olympus. The canyon offers a lot of variety of outdoor activities, including abseiling (up to 22 meters), sliding, jumping, swimming and canyon walking. Perfect for adventurers looking for intermediate level canoying. Guides are professional, friendly and really trying to get the most out of your experience. We recommend this tour and organisation!
  • Love canyoning, Thomas is a good tourguide! Always felt Safe. I would totally recommend xtremeway outdoors
  • What a fantastic and memorable experience for the whole family! We are a family of 4-our kids are 14 and 11-we so enjoyed our adventure and raved about it for days regaling many feats, funny stories and laughter! Adventure aside -the pure beauty of the canyons was an experience in its own right-crystal clear mineral water that we could swim in and drink from anytime, tadpoles, frogs, sapphire blue dragonflies and river boatmen amongst marbled rock, waterfalls, rock pools, bay trees and olive trees-you can see why this was the area the Ancient Greek gods settled in. Thomas is a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. We all felt safe with him leading the way. He held back our eldest kamikaze daughter who needs to be reminded of any danger whilst encouraging me to face my fear of heights. Our youngest daughter aged 11 was also fearful at times but Thomas always knew exactly what to say and do. My husband loved it and felt challenged throughout. Thomas went above and beyond to ensure we had nothing short of the best experience possible. Don’t hesitate to try this experience for yourselves! And if I can do it anyone can!
  • Incredible morning in a beautiful, natural environment tumbling down a canyon beneath Mount Olympus. Thomas is a brilliant, professional instructor. This activity is a fantastic way to experience the lower reaches of the mountains, while learning new skills. It is challenging for the whole family and very safe even for absolute beginners (like us). We abseiled down waterfalls, bouldered through the torrent and hurled ourselves off various ledges above sparkling, turquoise waters. Unbelievable. Thank you for a great time, Thomas. We would definitely recommend Olympus Canyoning Adventures.
  • So great 💪🏻 Alt the recommendations from here! Thomas was so great. Timely and good equipment. Xtremeways is very great 💪🏻
  • We have passed a very nice afternoon in the Mount Olympus. It was ouf first time that we did canyoning and it's very great.
  • Canyoning was a great experience that we would repeat at any time. Our guide Thomas looked after us very well and explained everything - great guy. The nature on site is beautiful and it felt so good to climb over the stones through the refreshing water. The highlights were of course the jumps from lofty heights into the lagoons. Thomas makes a lot of videos and photos in great quality, so that you can remember the experience for a long time! Absolute recommendation. Many thanks to Thomas!
  • A super friendly guide that explains everything you need to know to have fun on Mount Olympus! He takes enough time to make everyone comfortable before going over to the more adventurous areas of the canyoning. The tour ends with a big jump if you dare to ;)
  • This was one of the best canyoning experienced ever! Stunning nature! Thomas is an experienced climber and me and my 10 year old felt so safe the entire time. We had so much fun hiking and repelling down amazing waterfalls, and swimming in crystal clear lagoons. Thank you Thomas and Iordanis for this amazing experience!!!
