Useful advice!

  • The best season for walking at the Holy Meteora is Spring and Autumn. If you are walking in the Summer, you will need to have a lot of water with you. You should also avoid walking in the heat of the day (11.00 – 4.00 pm). In the Winter you should also avoid areas that are very wet and slippery.
  • You should wear shoes that are correct for such sports.
  • Please respect the holiness of the site and maintain the proper behavior.
  • Please keep the area clean of all forms of rubbish.
You can better organize your hiking excursion with the help of the private tourist offices in our city. Experienced drivers will guide you to the magical paths of Meteora.
