A day trip gives you the opportunity to the unique combination of the phenomenon Meteora, and the religious feeling, to enjoy monasticism.

In the north-western edge of the plain of Thessaly, between the Pindos Mountains and Antichasion, near the river Peneus silently dominate the huge rocks of Meteora. Proud and majestic, interrupting the monotony of the endless plain of Thessaly. Meteora is just above the picturesque Kastraki of Kalambaka and, full of beauty.

This unique area consists of hundreds of peaks that offer a unique feeling and a special breath-taking experience. Here you will learn the history of monasticism, which started at the beginning of the 11th century and you will visit 2 of the monasteries. Usually we approach the monasteries of Agios Stefanos, the Great Meteoro Barlaam  or of Agios Nikolaos, but that depends on the day of the excursion. After the visit in Meteora, a light meal in a tavern close to KASTRAKI overlooking the cliffs of Meteora.

We take the road back by the Thessalian plain. In the late afternoon we arrive in the city of Volos in Pelion for a refreshment , having in mind all the beauties of the sights.
