During this early-morning tour, you will go through Meteora's magnificent "rock forest," explore the greatest monasteries, and take in the most breathtaking views while experiencing this rare geological phenomenon in the best way possible, through the eyes of a local.
The hike will start at the foot of the Doupiani rock, right beneath the old ruins of Pantokrator monastery, crossing onwards the massive rock formations of Meteora towards the northern side of the rocks, following a trail that leads to the hidden monasteries of Ypapanti and the ruins of St. Dimitrios. All of those thousand years of history tales, legends and fascinating stories will come to life as your local guides will navigate you through each spot.
From that point and after a short walk you will find yourself gazing at the impressive monasteries of Great Meteoron and Varlaam which are located on a higher level, with enough time to spend visiting one of them.
You will then go downhill through the ancient trail of the monks that are still paved today with the original stones, and you can walk under the shadows of the massive rocks for the last part of this marvelous hike.
Allow us to take you on a journey back in time, through the footsteps of the first hermits and monks who originally arrived here more than 15 centuries ago, to stroll through hidden trails and undiscovered paths, among the enormous rock pillars of Meteora to revel in some astonishing views.
