Olympos is a settlement on the island of Karpathos, Greece. It is situated on the north side of the island.

Olympos is known for its traditional way of life. As the town is isolated, much progress has eluded Olympos. Its architecture has not changed much in decades and its people still dress in the traditional island style. The local dialect can be difficult for other Greeks as it retains many archaic Doric forms.
