Tour information: Hike through the majestic 'rock forest' of Meteora, see the best monasteries and experience the most captivating views in this morning tour. The hike will start on the foot of the Doupiani rock, right beneath the old ruins of Pantokrator monastery. From there you are going to cross the massive rock pillars of Meteora towards the northern side of the rocks, following a trail that leads to the hidden monasteries of Ypapanti and the ruins of St. Dimitrios, which in the early 19th century became part of a batlle during a local uprising against the Ottoman Turks. Take this hike and hear about all the secret stories behind each place you pass by through the exciting narrative of local mountain guides. From that point and after a short walk you will find yourself gazing at the impressive monasteries of Great Meteoron and Varlaam which are located on a higher level, with enough time to spend for a visit in one of them

The hike will then take you downhill through the ancient trail of the monks that is still paved today with the original stones and you can walk under the shadows of theses massive rocks for the last part of this marvelous hike
