Activity description

This is a unique hiking experience! Meteora is a place of incredible beauty, famous all over the world for its gigantic rock pillars and monasteries that are built on the rocks' summits. Meteora is not only one of the biggest monastic centers in Greece but a place with incredible natural scenery.

Our hiking tour will start from Kastraki village, which is located very close to the Meteora rocks. Soon we will see the old ruins of Pantokrator monastery. From there we will walk through the huge rocks of Meteora by crossing a gorgeous forest. Very soon we will reach the monastery of Large Meteoron Metamorphosis, the first and largest monastery in this earlier monastic state.

From the parking lot, we will hike on an old and abandoned trail to the secluded Ypapantis monastery, behind the rock towers. After a good round of 2 hours, we will come back to Kastraki village. We will also visit some spots with an awesome view of Kalambaka, the valley of Pinios and the great Pindos peaks. In total, we will visit the insides of 2 monasteries, depending on the day of the visit.
