Tour description

Travel through mountainous countryside for a real feeling of Northern Greece.

An amazing visit to the Meteora monasteries.

The monasteries of Meteora are in the plains of Thessaly perched upon the unique natural phenomenon of rock pillars. The pillars, over a thousand in all, give the area a deep sense of tranquility. The monasteries themselves were built in the 11th century, of the original 21 monasteries, 6 are still in operation today.

The largest is the Great Meteora, Monastery of the Transfiguration. Visitors to the monastery prior to 1923 would have to make the ascent in the original way of the monks, by rope ladders or winched up in a net. Luckily for visitors today the net is now used only for supplies!

On the return journey to Parga, a short stop at the picturesque town of Metsovo. A very traditional mountain town which, at 1,156m, is on one of the highest peaks of the Pindos mountain range. Metsovo is also one of Greece´s many ski resorts during winter months.
