What you can expect

Venture to a UNESCO-listed wonder of the Grecian countryside on this day trip to the Meteora, a monastic community perched atop dramatic rock pillars. Ascend the monolithic formations to uncover 14th-century art at 2 well-preserved monasteries, and then marvel at the lush Vale of Tempe.

Depart early in the morning for the scenic drive from Thessaloniki, leaving the urban metropolis behind for green hills and majestic mountains. Your destination is the town of Kalambaka, nestled beneath the soaring pinnacles of the Meteora. As you marvel at the incredible geological landscape, your guide drives you up the steep rock columns to reach 2 of their lofty monasteries. Step inside to survey beautiful frescoes and icons dating back to the 14th century, and get a glimpse into Eastern orthodox monastic life that continues today.

Head back down to grab lunch on your own in Kalambaka, and then set out on the return trip to Thessaloniki. On the way, pull off to discover the verdant beauty of the Vale of Tempe, the famous valley frequented by gods and goddesses in Greek mythology, before heading back to the city.
