A ‘life-seeing’ experience rather than a sight-seeing experience

When all the masses of tourists are long gone, join an amazing sunset tour that undoubtedly will be the highlight of your entire Meteora visit.

This tour will take you on a late afternoon visit to discover the hidden gems of this place. Allow the locals to guide you through the winding narrow roads of Meteora to places away the beaten tourist paths. Sunset tour begins with a visit to one of the monasteries, Agios Stefanos or Roussanou on the rocks.  Then we will guide you to the oldest standing monument of our place, the Byzantine church of Virgin Mary located at the town of Kalambaka. A church made in the early Christian period with ancient marbles embedded on its walls, telling the town’s long history of 27 centuries. Visit the thousand years old hermitages of Bandovas, learn the stories and the legends and enjoy great views from the most panoramic spots.

And as the sun slowly begins to descent, getting ready to touch the mountain ridges we’ll bring you high up on the rocks of Meteora, on a magical spot to enjoy the most captivating sunset views. Up there, sitting on the edges of cliffs you will feel the cool evening breeze as it passes through this out of this world landscape. Let your heighten senses explore moment by moment the dimming of the daylight and the vividness of the sunset colors on the earth and the sky above. A perfect way to end a beautiful day at Meteora with an awe-inspiring tour to be remembered forever!

ATTENTION: From May 1st 2017 and every Monday, the Sunset Tour will start at 3:45pm instead of 4:30pm.
