Description

2+ million annual Meteora visitors can’t be wrong. Discover why so many explorers flock to see the rocks that “hover on the air” every year, feasting their eyes and ears on the region’s rich history. Learn the truth about these gigantic rock pinnacles, ancient monastery ruins, and millennia-old secrets. A full day of adventure awaits.

Redeem your e-ticket for the 07:20 departure from Athens railway station to Kalampaka and travel on your own. Embark on a scenic train ride through the Greek countryside and admire the beautiful landscapes. At 11:30 you will arrive at Kalampaka’s train station, where our tour guide will be waiting for you holding a signboard with your name. You will board in a comfortable Limo VIP minibus in order to begin an unforgettable tour in Meteora.

This tour will give you the opportunity to see all six monasteries (enter one or two of them) and learn all about the history and myths of Meteora directly from a local. At 15:45 the minibus will transfer you back to Kalampaka’s train station in order for you to travel back to your base. The train departs at 17:15, so you will have about an hour free time to explore the center of Kalampaka on foot, visit one of the many cafes or restaurants and relax by observing and taking photos of Meteora. You will arrive in Athens at around 21:25.
