Description

Accompanied by your own private guide enjoy an in depth tour in the area of Meteora. This program is designed to give you a full perspective around the nature the culture and the history that surrounds Meteora by hiking, visiting monasteries, tasting the traditional treats and meeting with a local painter of byzantine art. Our program starts with a hike from the square of Kastraki village and after a while, we enter the path that starts on the foot of the cliffs .We pass beneath the ruined monastery of Pantocrator on the north side of the rock Ntoupiani. The route takes us to the heart of the lush forest and reaches the abandoned and restored Monastery of the “Ipapanti” and the statue of the agonist of the Greek revolution Papathymios Vlahavas. At this point, the trail leads to the top of the cliffs until we reach the impressive monasteries “Great Meteoro" and "Varlaam" which we will be visting. We will then downhill close to Kastraki to enjoy a picnic with local traditional delicacies and drinks. Passing next to the cave of St. George Mandila where every year climbers ascend to hang their scarves we will visit a byzantine Paint studio at Kastraki and have a lecture from local artist about the history and the techniques of byzantine art (hagiography) that adorn the walls of the monasteries.
