With a sci-fi-sounding name like Meteora, it's no surprise the scenery here is out of this world. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site where clifftop monasteries perch fearlessly on top of cloud-touching cliffs. Thousands of visitors flock here every year. But unlike them, you'll experience a private tour exclusively for you and your party.
Even the drive to get there will be scenic. Pausing along the way for a quick coffee, you'll make tracks to Meteora's ancient monasteries that sit on top of sandstone towers carved out by Mother Nature. Originally, there were 24 built, of which six remain active. Perched either on the sides or summits of clifftops and immense natural pillars – some more than 500 metres high – they offer epic views over the surrounding countryside.
Get the lowdown from your guide on the history of this spectacular complex – how and why they were built, and fascinating titbits about life in these remote spots. Rounding off the day is some free time for lunch in Kalambaka.
