Oitis Refuge is situated in a dense, lush green area at an altitude of 1,240 metres just 50 kilometres from Lamia and 200 kilometres from Athens. Since 2007, on a daily basis, every morning we offer our friends and guests unforgettable moments of relaxation and enjoyment in the warm lounge, but also action and adventure in nature and the young forests of the area.
We offer our guests hot and cold beverages, fresh homemade sweets and ice creams, as well as platters of various fresh cold meats and cheeses, a perfect accompaniment for tsipouro or ouzo. Whilst young and ...older children can practice their skills in the new Adventure Park (14 years and over) and in the junior adventure park (for children up to 14 years of age) But adventure fans will not be left complaining as there are activities for every season at the refuge. Mountain biking and hiking are available with a range of level difficulty (with or without a companion).
