ONE DAY TOUR
Admire the magnificent landscape and experience nature at its finest visiting the sandstone peaks of Meteora that rise up behind the town of Kalambaka, located between the mountains Koziaka and Antichasion.
Meteora are one of the most popular destinations in Greece for both Greeks and foreigners. The enormous, smoothly carved rocks are home to the second largest monastic complex in the country, the first being that of Mount Athos, also known as Agion Oros.
Meteora, were created over 30 million years ago by the retreating seas and eons later became an ideal place for prayer and isolation and have continued to be for approximately six centuries, since the founding of the first of many monasteries in the 14th century.
Today, the six remaining monasteries and convents, including the Holy Monastery of Great Meteoro (Transfiguration of Jesus), the Holy Trinity Monastery, Saint Nikolaos Anapafsas Monastery and Varlaam Monastery and the convents of Roussanou and Saint Stephen’s, have still retained the rituals of monasticism.
Thousands of people visit Meteora every year.
Meteora are not only known as a center of Orthodox monasticism, but are also popular among mountain climbers, as the peaks constitute one of the world’s most unique and safe mountaineering destinations.
Since 1977, when a climbing guide to the region was published and the first mountaineering teams arrived, “conquering” Meteora has become a goal for many climbers, who come in groups throughout the year and contribute to keeping the tourist activity of the area alive.
Additionally, starting from Kalambaka you can visit the picturesque traditional villages of the surrounding area, with alleys filled with religious painting (hagiography) and woodworking studios and workshops, as a result of the area’s monastic activity and ensuing tourism.
Take the chance to visit Meteora, and be amazed by a destination also considered an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
