There comes a time when we all just want to step away from all the city madness and find a peaceful escape. For all of you who are tired of looking for a quick getaway don’t worry, GrekAddict team has a solution for you. We present you, Meteora!
Meteora is the geological wonder of immense rocks that were created and shaped by different natural forces. These rocky giants are surrounded by mesmerizing natural landscape which makes this place a perfect location for exploring and hiking activities. What makes these “columns of the sky” even more breathtaking, are the six majestic monasteries placed at the very top of each column. The monasteries were built by monks centuries ago with the purpose to find inner peace and spiritual elevation. For this reason, this destination is still immensely popular as a soul sanctuary. These monasteries and their rich cultural history set up a unique combination of outdoor adventures and history together.
In case you can’t decide on how to approach Meteora, we prepared three different tours that will suit every need.
One of the best ways to truly experience the magnificence of these rocky giants is through our Hiking Tour. This tour is ideal for anyone that has a adventurous spirit since the hike is based on following the footsteps and routes that monks used in the past before roads were built. Throughout this hike you will discover all the secret spots and tracks that are known only to locals. If you ask us there is no better way to experience the history and “vibe” of such place than by re-living the paths the ancestors left.
Of course, we understand that some people are of less adventurous spirit and want to visit this peaceful oasis in a more laid back manner. We therefore recommend our Half Day Tour where the local tour guide will expose all the charms of this place to you. During this tour you will explore the three most popular monasteries that will definitely leave you speechless. You will also hear tales and legends that have been passed on by generation to generation. Needless to say, the view from the top of the columns is simply breathtaking.
The final tour is dedicated to all the romantic souls that are seeking a one of a kind golden hour view. The Sunset Tour from one of the most unique places in the world is something that you will cherish forever. Before the sun starts setting you have the chance to visit the monasteries and the surrounding caves where monks used to live. After the exploratory tour you can find a nice place to sit down and watch the sun set behind between the rocks.
What differentiates Meteora from other places is that the beauty of it lies in both the journey and the destination. So don’t wait any longer to discover the majestic Meteora, pick the tours that you like and book this unforgettable experience!
