Important Information

  • Important - Effective until August 31: The train operator has temporarily modified the Thessaloniki to Meteora train route's schedule due to infrastructure maintenance. As a result, the total travel and waiting time have significantly increased. For this reason, during that period bus transportation will be provided instead. The bus departs from Thessaloniki at 09:30 arriving at Meteora at 13:27. The return trip departs at 14:00 arriving at Thessaloniki at 17:45. Rest assured that all tours and activities will proceed as scheduled, as this revised itinerary enables us to maintain the full program.
