Meteora Hike with Transport from Kalambaka
US$ 41.02
Overview
Step off the tourist trail and discover the little-known routes that most Meteora visitors don't get to see. On this half-day small-group trip, which includes round-trip transport from Kalambaka, you’ll follow a guide on a leisurely hike from Doupiani rock to the lofty Grand Meteora Monastery. Along the way, pass Ypapanti and some of the smaller rock monasteries, and listen to fascinating commentary about the UNESCO-listed site's formation and history.
What to Expect
Start your experience with a hotel pickup by air-conditioned minivan, and travel the short distance to Meteora, a UNESCO-listed area known for its cliff monasteries, caves and ethereal rocky landscape.

On arrival, hop out of your minivan, and follow your guide on a leisurely hike along the trails that only the locals know. While tracing the footsteps of the first hermits and monks who lived in Meteora many centuries ago, chat with your guide and hear little-known stories about the area’s history, geology and sights.

Make your way along a gently climbing route from the Doupiani rock, just below the old ruins of the Pantokrator monastery. Amble around the imposing pillars of Meteora toward the northern side of the rocks and stumble upon the rarely visited monasteries of Ypapanti and St Dimitrios — two hidden Meteora gems.

As you listen to tales of bygone battles between the Ottoman Turks and locals, gaze further up the hill to see the Grand Meteora and Moni Varlaam monasteries, clinging to the cliffs. Visit one of these impressive monasteries with your guide (own expense) before hiking back to your Meteora start point.

At the Doupiani rock, reboard your minivan and finish the experience with a drop-off at your hotel.

A friendly and knowledgable guide helped give me a better insight into Meteora than I would have easily found on my own. Walking up from the base was a much better way of experiencing the place than just driving around. This way you experience the...More

Wonderful botanical insights!

Our leader Chris was excellent - the hike and tour of the monasteries could not be improved upon. Chris was brimming with information of all kinds and I particularly enjoyed his botanical details. Leave aside the coach parties and discover the holy paths of Meteora...More
