Meteora Private Trip from Athens

A Road Trip in the “Middle of the Sky”

Have you ever dreamed a Road Trip in the “Middle of the Sky”? Discover the place of inaccessible sandstone mounts where “things suspended in mid-air”. The 24 giant rock formations of Meteora stick out of the ground like giant stone fingers, allowing the ancient monasteries to sit, suspended in the air and be visible through the clouds. Enjoy your private day trip from Athens to Meteora UNESCO’s World Heritage.

 

Discover the “pillars of the sky” from the 11th century

The Meteora is a giant rock formation and UNESCO’s World Heritage site reach almost 400m into the sky, hosting one of the largest and most precipitously built complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries. Above the town of Kalabaka, The Meteora rocks stand proudly at the centre of an amazing  landscape, like something out of a science fiction movie, housing 24 monasteries in total, of which 6 remain active.
