Daytrip or two-day trip with an overnight stay to the monasteries of Meteora
The monasteries of Meteora, close to the village of Kalambaka, are one of the most impressive sights in all of Greece. The typical monasteries, build on top of incredibly steep sandrocks, are being visited by countless tourists every year.
The Meteora consist of six “floating” monasteries. The Greek word meteorizomai means ‘to float in the air’, and especially during winter time, when the monasteries are veiled under fog and clouds, its meaning becomes clear. Mysterious and impressive are the best description of the high rocks that stand like giants in the valley. The monasteries stand proudly on top of these rocks.
The history of this magical sight goes back to the end of the 11th century. Originally, there used to be as much as 24 monasteries, but nowadays only six of them are inhabited. Two are still living according to the monastic regime, the other four are museums and tourist attractions.
We offer daytrips to the monasteries of Meteora, but it is also possible to spend the night and stay in these beautiful and magical surroundings.
