Why we chose this tour

Our Meteora 3 Day Tour from Athens and Thessaloniki by Train lets you travel in style, admiring the panoramas that flash by on your journey to this Byzantine treasure that is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The monastic community that decided to hole up in this geological wonder left plenty behind for us to marvel at, from suspended prison cells to a chapel carved into the hills themselves. Surrender to the spiritual energy that radiates from this site and let yourself be transported to another time.

Our Meteora 3 Day Tour from Athens and Thessaloniki by Train is available every day. No matter where you’re departing from, the scenery that will slide by on your seamless journey to Meteora is sure to delight you. After arriving in Kalampaka, you will be escorted by your guide to the hotel for a quick rest, and then the fun begins. The first adventure of your tour is a sunset hike of the site, and there is nothing quite like the site of these rocky hills light up with the ruby tones of a sunset.

The next two days take you on a deep dive into the old stories and fascinating figures that founded this community in the 10th century. Be inspired by the chapel carved into the hill and dedicated to the holy spirit, see the rock that the founder of this community build the complex on, and tour the entirety of the monastery from outlying ruins to the prison cells high above you. After 2 days in the mountains, you’ll have seen Saint George’s hermitage, a dazzling array of natural splendor, and all of the monasteries of Meteora.
