This Full-Day Private Tour to Meteora from Corfu is a unique opportunity to discover the world-famous Meteora clifftop monasteries, along with the awe-inspiring surrounding landscape, and the most captivating views!

After an early pickup from your Corfu accommodation, hop on your comfortable vehicle and travel to Corfu port where you will board a ferry to the mainland town of Igoumenitsa (approximately 2 hours). Once in Igoumenitsa, get back on your private vehicle and enjoy the comfortable journey to the UNESCO-listed site of Meteora! From the minute you arrive at Meteora, we bet that this extraordinary place will leave you speechless: Soaring pillars of rock jut heavenward, a handful complete with monasteries perched on their summits!

It is widely considered that these impressive rock formations were created 60 million years ago by earthquakes and weathering. Marvel at the breathtaking natural beauty and mesmerizing landscape of this geological mystery, and take advantage of one-of-a-kind photo opportunities! Stand with awe in front of the spectacular clifftop monasteries which were once home to hermit monks that were seeking isolation, peace and harmony. Originally, there were 24 monasteries but only the following six have managed to survive through the years and can be visited nowadays: Great Meteoron Monastery, Varlaam Monastery, St. Stephen's Monastery, St. Nicholas Monastery, Holy Trinity Monastery and Roussanou Monastery. During this tour, you will have the chance to explore the holy grounds of two monasteries including the Great Meteoron- the largest and oldest one. After an insightful tour of Meteora, you will have free time to explore the small town of Kalampaka, situated on the foothills of the Meteora rocks. Wander around the city, shop for souvenirs or enjoy a delicious Greek lunch in one of the traditional Greek tavernas (additional cost).

At the end of your fascinating Tour to Meteora from Corfu, get back to your private vehicle and head back to the port of Igoumenitsa, where you will board the return ferry to Corfu port. Your tour concludes with a convenient drop off to your accommodation.
