What You'll Do
  • Go on a guided hike through the rocks and hills of Meteora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Take in the amazing panoramic views of the surrounding sandstone pillars
  • Visit 1 of the 6 Eastern Orthodox monasteries located in the area
Overview
Take a guided morning hike in Meteora to see the best views of the area's 6 Eastern Orthodox monasteries made of sandstone rock. On this 5-hour tour, enjoy fresh air and marvel at the jaw-dropping panoramic views from this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
What to Expect
The ideal way to experience Meteora’s unique beauty and interesting rock formations is by walking, as it is the only way to really observe the impressive rock formations and strange patterns. On a half-day guided hike, you will be taken up close to these structures and led directly to the best vantage points in the area.

After being transported from Kalampaka, the hiking tour begins from Kastraki Square, continuing to Dupiani Hermitage. Pass below the ruined Pantokratoros Monastery on the north side of Dupiani's rock, arriving at the Ypapanti Monastery and the ruins of St. Dimitrios, a monastery destroyed by the Ottomans in 1808 during a local uprising.

From there, the trail leads all the way up to the impressive Great Meteoro and Varlaam monasteries, 2 of 6 total Eastern Orthodox monasteries in the area, all part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tour the grounds, and afterward, go down from Varlaam to St. George the Madilas to see the place where the local children climb with only a rope to dedicate offerings to St. George.
