Defner Refuge, Parnassos
The route starts from Parnassos, Livadi towards “Michalis Defner” Refuge in the Sarandari area of Parnassos. Going up the Arkoudorema we reach Laka Pasha at about 1,600 meters altitude. From there we follow the path to the refuge.
The picturesque thick snowy forest shows a beautiful feel and the view to the south becomes more and more visible as you head to the mountain. The route to the refuge is moderate/easy.
At the end of the trail you follow the snow-covered forest road for about one kilometer.
Arriving at the refuge you can enjoy the fantastic view, if the weather allows, while sipping your hot drink. The Michael Defner Refuge is at an altitude of 1,820 meters on the western outskirts of the Gerontovrachos peak of Parnassos. From there you take the same path to return back to Livadi.
