Begin your journey from Athens Railway Station aboard a bus that journeys through the picturesque Greek countryside. Alight in Kalambaka in the early afternoon where a welcoming English-speaking guide will greet you and whisk you away to your hotel. As dusk approaches, you'll be part of the enchanting Meteora Sunset Tour. This experience promises not only breathtaking vistas but also an introduction to Meteora's hidden gems: the inner sanctum of a monastery, the ancient Byzantine church, and the secluded hermit caves that whisper tales of old. Your subsequent morning in Meteora offers an enticing choice: Would you prefer to navigate the rugged terrain with the Meteora Hiking Tour or explore the landscape's majesty in comfort with a half-day tour on a minibus? Either way, a knowledgeable guide awaits you in the hotel lobby, ready to delve into Meteora's vibrant natural scenery and deep-rooted cultural heritage. Immerse yourself in stories of early hermits and pioneering monks, the very souls who founded the illustrious monastic community of Meteora. Please note that your transfer from Athens is temporarily done by an airconditioned bus departing from the Athens Train station, instead of a train. The reason is that trains have stopped operations due to a devastating flood. You will still enjoy the experience in the most stress-free manner possible. Not only is the bus ride to Kalabaka efficient and a bit faster, but it also allows you to soak up the enchanting countryside of Greece. Awe at the gorgeous landscapes that unfold before your eyes and prepare yourself for the wonders of Meteora to come.
