Meteora Half-day Tour from Kalampaka
Join the Meteora Half-day Tour from Kalampaka and explore the amazing Meteora Mountain on the roots of Pindos mountain range in Thessaly.
Meteora Half-day Tour from Kalampaka is the perfect tour to explore the amazing Meteora Monasteries. History, science and mythology alike have attempted to explain the formation of the sandstone mountain, but it is still a mystery which makes it one of the most unique places in the world and places it on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Its deep religious history offers many tales and legends as well.
It is estimated that the first hermit monks settled on Meteora around the 10th century AD. It has since been a Christian sanctuary with a very complicated and rough history. 24 monasteries were built during its history, 6 remain to this day.
Go on a daytime tour of 3 of the 6 remaining monasteries in Meteora, learn the history and hear dark tales of the area from local guides. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings and take photos from unbelievable positions.
Visiting Meteora would be the best compliment to your stay in Thessaloniki or Halkidiki.

Combine that with learning the history of the area and hearing impressive tales about the first hermits and monks who settled in Meteora, and you have a complete day of body and soul fulfilling activity.
