Leptokarya Mini Guide

What can you tell me about Leptokarya?
Leptokarya is a small village in central Macedonia close to the bigger town of Katerini which in turn thrives on its proximity to Thessaloniki. It’s also close to the site of the ancient town of Livithra, where Orpheus is said to have lived. Many festivals and much local folklore relates to the life and deeds of Orpheus and Livithra is undertaking a major revival of the Orpheus story. Leptokarya is on the coast and in having one of the only nice beaches along this coastline is popular with the citizens of Thessaloniki.

How do I get Into Leptokarya?
There are two airports within reach of Leptokarya; Aktion International Airport and Ioaninna Airport. Both are around thirty miles from Leptokarya and whilst you can use the local bus or a taxi, it’s far better to hire a car there for the trip into Leptokarya. If you don’t want a car for the duration of your stay then we can organise car hire in Leptokarya for you for a shorter duration.

What is There to do in and Around Leptokarya?
Leptokarya is all about the beach, a favourite for weekenders from Thessaloniki. It gets very crowded but is still worth spending some time there for the soft sand and clean water. There’s a lot of archaeology in evidence there with the cult of Orpheus leaving several temples to the god strewn around the countryside. The mystic Mount Olympus overlooks the village too and it’s possible at most times of the year to climb it to see the archaeological remains from the worship of the gods. In winter it can be very treacherous and you need to hire a guide or keep off the mountain.
