Amazing hike with a wonderful guide in a beautiful location! Not only did we get to enjoy the sunset from the perfect vantage point, but we learned about the history, the terrain, and so much more from our fantastic guide, Nicholas! Don’t hesitate, book this hike for a memorable experience!!!

Nicolas was a wonderful guide, and we found the sunset hike to be a perfect introduction to the Meteora monasteries! Highly recommend for active travelers looking for a unique experience. The hike was mostly shaded in a lovely forest, and very manageable for anyone used to hikes of medium length and difficulty. For us, this hike in the afternoon plus visiting the inside of the monasteries on our own the following morning was exactly the right itinerary.

This was an amazing trip & we would highly recommend to anyone who is physically able. Our guide was a lifetime local who knew so much about the land & it’s history. They were also beyond friendly. The hike was relatively difficult at parts but it was a very unique experience.
