Discover the Meteora Monasteries, where the architecture melts into the rocks at over 600 metres high. One of the most mystical and beautiful sights in Greece.

Meteora Monasteries Day Trip

A minibus will pick you up at your hotel in Kalambaka, to begin the journey to Meteora, where you can find one of the most iconic and famous sights in Greece: the hanging monasteries of Meteora.

Following a brief journey of approximately 20 minutes, you'll understand its nickname: these monasteries can be found atop rocky formations 600 metres up.

Over the four hour tour, and English speaking guide will explain the stories and interesting facts about Meteora and its monasteries. The area is one of the most beautiful and impressive in all of Greece, so much so that the producers of Game of Thrones even chose Meteora as one of the places to shoot the series: it was the famous Eagle's Nest Prison, where Tyrion Lannister was kept.

At its peak, 24 monasteries co-existed in Meteora, but with the passage of time and various wars (much was destroyed during the Second World War), today only six can be visited: Great Meteoron, Varlaam, Rousanou, St. Nicholas Anapausas, St. Stephen and Holy Trinity.

We'll visit three of these monasteries (entry not included), with the selection depending on the day you decide to take the tour. The visit of these monasteries is not guided, but we will give you all the information you need before entering.

The tour finishes at around 1 pm, at which point we'll accompany you back to your hotel in Kalambaka.
