What people are saying about Kalabaka

This experience was one of the highlights of our Greece trip. It was a lot of fun and the 2 guides were very personable and always made you feel safe. The pace was adapted to the group and there were enough breaks to enjoy the view. It is essential to put on halfway non-slip shoes, you should also be in a bit of athletic condition - the next day I had a lot of sore muscles;) Great experience!

Incredible, breathtaking experience. The guide takes you as close as possible to the sumptuous mountains of Meteora, with an unparalleled view. I had the chance to do this activity at the end of May, and I recommend it 1000%. (I recommend long pants and a long-sleeved t-shirt or jacket).

Awesome climbing, awesome views, fantastic guide (George)

Just the 2 of us and George so very personalised. George was very thorough and encouraging and made the whole experience very relaxed and fun! The views were amazing once we reached the top and coming down was even more fun. Thanks George, we loved it!

Very well-rounded experience. Especially good for beginners. Big thanks to our guide - George! He was very flexible and thoughtful
