Full description

Discover the wonders of Meteora on a guided day trip from Thessaloniki. Enjoy a scenic train ride to Kalabaka with included round-trip tickets and taste local flavors during an optional lunch at a restaurant.

Redeem your train e-ticket (received after booking) for the morning 08:56 train departure from Thessaloniki’s railway station to Kalabaka on your own. Embark on a train ride through the Greek countryside and admire the beautiful landscapes. At 12:03 arrive at Kalabaka’s train station, where a tour guide will be waiting for you holding a signboard with your name on it. Board a minibus and officially begin your unforgettable journey to this true wonder called Meteora. During the guided tour, see all six of Meteora's monasteries and admire the interior of three of them. View some of Meteora’s most spectacular hidden gems like the ancient Chapel of Doupiani and the magnificent St. George “Mandilas” cave. Discover the “other side” of Meteora as you explore. Learn the truth about why the hermits settled in these imposing caves a thousand years ago and how the monks achieved the impossible. As the trip comes to a close, enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views and capture some amazing photos that you will cherish forever.
