In the afternoon you will be picked up from your hotel for the sunset Meteora tour. During this tour you will have the opportunity to enjoy the panoramic views, admire the remarkable architecture and natural beauty of this unique landscape and witness one of the most breathtaking sunsets you will ever see. Then you will have free time to explore the city of Kalambaka. The following morning at 9:00 AM, you will be picked up from your hotel and taken to your morning Meteora tour.

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.
