activity info

A unique and unforgettable experience during your stay in Thessaloniki will be a visit to the Meteora Monasteries. Meteora is a geological miracle, which one must see for himself in order to believe. These hilltop cloisters are among the most important complexes in Eastern Orthodoxy and a UNESCO World Heritage site.  

Depart early in the morning from Thessaloniki and travel through a landscape of green valleys dotted with dramatic grey cliffs to reach Meteora. Arriving at the beautiful town of Kalambaka, you will visit the famous Meteora, geological formations unique in their kind, on which the Monasteries are perched; they were built in the 14th century and they are rich in precious testimonies of Byzantine art. Visit two of these fabulous monasteries, built high upon the steep rocks. Each monastery owns a vast richness of frescoes and icons.

Afterwards, you will make your lunch break in Kalambaka town where you will have also the chance to explore the region’s modern-day culture. Retrace the route back to Thessaloniki, where you will arrive late in the afternoon.

“Magical trip. Unbelievable place”

Helpful, friendly driver and guide. I was blown away by the place. Up there with the Taj Mahal. So special. Long day but well worth it and we were looked after extremely well.

PARFAIT !

Très bonne excursion. Les météores offrent un paysage magnifique, et la guide était suffisamment intéressante pour faire oublier la longueur du trajet. Merci également à la compagnie pour avoir accepté de nous modifier le meeting point afin de nous en donner un plus proche de notre appartement. Une fantastique expérience. Nous recommandons à 100% !

Meteora Day Tour Magnificent

Three Australians on tour. Picked up on time with warm welcome. The driver and tour leader were fantastic. A long bus trip from Thessonaliki was kept interesting and fun. Rest stops in good clean service stations. Great tour of two monasteries and views of the others. Quick stop in icon factory. Highly recommended.
