Full description

Leave Halkidiki behind to travel through beautiful landscapes and enjoy a full-day guided journey to the mystical rock formations of Meteora, with a special visit to the out-of-this-world Christian monasteries, acknowledged by UNESCO on their World Heritage List.

Meteora is a geological miracle, which you must see for yourself in order to fully grasp how magical it is. Depart early in the morning from Halkidiki and drive by gorgeous green valleys dotted with dramatic grey cliffs to reach your destination.

Once you arrive at the beautiful town of Kalambaka, you will visit the famous Meteora, geological formations unique in their kind, on which the Monasteries are perched. These incredible constructions were built in the 14th century and they are rich in precious relics of Byzantine art.

Visit two of these fabulous monasteries, built high upon the steep rocks. Each monastery owns a vast richness of frescoes and icons. Afterward, take a well-deserved break in Kalambaka town, with the option to enjoy lunch at your own expense. Take your time to explore the region’s modern-day culture, before hitting the road to head back to your accommodation.
