Highlights of Meteora

Meteora  

If a picture says a thousand words, then Meteora is worth ten thousand. Words cannot describe the perfect combination of beauty and adventure in this magical place. Majestic stone pillars with ancient monasteries that play a balancing act as if it was a penthouse built clinging to the rock faces of these skyscrapers of nature. Lets see why this grand masterpiece should not be missed.

Just to get this out, nobody has ever been disappointed coming to Meteora…and I mean NOBODY! It really is that good. In the world there are few places that could compare with or match Meteora. This is why movies such as James Bond and others that require an “out of this world” backdrop have been filmed here, because it really is that unique. Missing Meteora would be like going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel Tower, now who would ever do that?! While most tourists come to Greece in the summer for the beaches, Meteora is an all year destination giving stunning views and amazing photo opportunities whenever you decide to come.
Stepping into Meteora is like taking a step back a 1000 years in time. Spectacular scenery and human engineering mix to form this enchanting place. As many as 24 monasteries have been built on the tops and into the sides of Meteora’s stone pillars, engineering feats that were well before their time. The remaining 6 monasteries that are still in use are open to visitors and will amaze you!
First coming here you are astonished by the beauty of Meteora. The stone pillars change colour constantly depending on the light and you cannot help but to stare at dazzling display. Suddenly you see what appears to be something hundreds of meters above you, suspended by a thread and clinging to the face of the mountain. Your initial thoughts are… “that cannot be a person, can it?” That’s exactly what it is! Meteora is the rock climbing Mecca of Greece.
Hiking the endless paths that pass through the maze of green valleys overshadowed by the towering rock formations. Explore the almost inaccessable caves that were lived in by hermit monks trying to find isolation. Experience the setting sun from the outlook at the top Meteora. If this is too much activity, then laze on your balcony with a glass of wine in hand and watch the sun bath the rocks in fabulous hues of orange and red. Take a day trip to the Pindos mountains to see the fearful Vikos Gorge.
