Daily trip to Meteora from Volos

At the northwest edge of the Plain of Thessaly, between the mountain of Pindos and Antichasia and near Pineios river, the stone giants of Meteora stand still and silent. Their proud and imposing aspect discontinues the monotony of the vast Thessalic plain. The rocks stand right above Kalambaka and the picturesque Kastraki, full of awe and beauty.

A daily excursion combines the unique experience that Meteora, known also as "The Stone Forest" offer with the religious sentiment created by their Monasteries. The journey to Meteora starts from Volos and other resorts in Pelion. We pass by the cities of Larisa, Trikala and Kalambaka. After arriving in Kalambaka, we shortly after reach the massively impressive rocks of Meteora that take one's breath away.We learn about the monarchy of the 11th century and have the chance to visit two of the historical monasteries. Usually we are visiting the Monasteries of Agios Stefano, Big Meteoro, Varlaam or Agio Nikolao, depending on the day that the excursion occurs.

Afterwards, we descend to Kastraki, where we can have a meal in a traditional Greek tavern enjoying the view. The trip continues across the Thessalian plain towards Volos (appr.3 hours).There, (according to your choice) we can also spend some time to see the town or drink a coffee.
