Activity description

The guided hiking tour of Meteora is one of the best ways to enjoy the unique landscape of the Meteora rocks and learn the history of the place which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. By joining this morning hike you will get the chance to see many things other visitors will never see, because you will be guided through ancient trails that only the locals know of. You will get to the footsteps of the first hermits and monks who originally arrived there  more than 15 centuries ago, in order to experience Meteora like never before.

The hike will start on the foot of the Doupiani rock, right beneath the old ruins of Pantokrator monastery. From there you are going to cross the massive rock pillars of Meteora towards the northern side of the rocks, following a trail that leads to the hidden monasteries of Ypapanti and the ruins of St. Dimitrios, which in the early 19th century became part of a battle during a local uprising against the Ottoman Turks. Take this hike and learn all about the secret stories behind each place through the exciting narratives of local mountain guides. From that point and after a short walk you will find yourself gazing at the impressive monasteries of Great Meteoron and Varlaam which are located on a higher level, with enough time to spend for a visit in one of them.

The hike will then take you downhill through the ancient trail of the monks that is still paved today with the original stones and you can walk under the shadows of the massive rocks for the last part of this marvelous hike.
