In order to find tours and travel ideas for Meteora first, you will need to have a good grasp of the area you are planning to visit. So, let’s talk a bit about the site, in general, to better understand why a few hours’ worth visit of to Meteora is not enough to experience the majesty of a World Heritage Site!
This is a map of Meteora’s main site with the two main settlements, Kalabaka town, and Kastraki village:
As you can see on the map above, the site of Meteora today is not a small one. It is in fact the largest archaeological site of Greece in terms of the area that it covers. The main archaeological site covers an area of a few square kilometers with an adequate road system, fully modernized (roughly 20 km long) that connects the six active monasteries as well as other points of interest and viewpoints. Despite the modern road, there is a lack of parking space outside the monasteries of Meteora to accommodate all visitors, especially during the rush hours.
In addition to the road system, Meteora also has a dense network of approximately 40 km of trails for people to hike. While one can find easily on his own most of the major Meteora attractions like the active monasteries within the boundaries of the archaeological site, there are also plenty of hidden gems to discover on Meteora’s periphery.
Our tours around Meteora do not only focus on the well-known Meteora attractions. Instead, they allow visitors to discover the hidden gems and unknown spectacular viewpoints of the entire area. One of the best tours, representative of this approach is the Meteora Sunset tour. It is a must-do tour of Meteora to reach some of the best viewpoints, learn the history behind it, and discover some less known but important monuments of Meteora like Badovas hermitages or the old Byzantine church in Kalabaka town.
