Full description
The tour begins in the early morning, almost an hour before dawn, with pickup from your hotel in Kalabaka or Kastraki. Drive around the rocks of Meteora and then enjoy a short walk through the woodland in order to find the perfect viewpoint for capturing unforgettable photos of the landscape. As the sun rises, admire the Meteora at it basks in the glow and various shades of the morning sky. Listen to tips and tricks from your expert guide on how to capture the perfect photo at this most advantageous time of day. Once the sun has risen, visit a selection of the monasteries of Meteora which were built several centuries ago by Christians seeking refuge from Ottomon rule. Learn about how these monks believed the higher the monastery was placed, the closer they would be to God. After 4 hours of exploration and photography, the tour concludes and your guide will drop you off at your hotel, or somewhere in Kalabaka if you wish to continue your day with a coffee or brunch in the town.
