  • Day 1

    Delphi - Meteora I Mountains and waters, a source of divine inspiration

    Start your trip towards Delphi, with a first stop at a mystical location of a mythical river and its sacred springs. Then continue with a visit to the ancient site and the museum of Delphi, the most important Oracle of antiquity and a monument of incredible beauty.

    After Delphi, you can enjoy a traditional Greek lunch under century-old plane trees in a beautiful, abandoned village, followed by a road trip through the mountains and valleys of central Greece. Finish the day with an evening walk and a dinner in Meteora.

    Overnight in Meteora

  • Day 2

    Meteora I Between Heaven and Earth

    After breakfast start your exploration of Meteora, a stunning natural phenomenon, featuring towering sandstone columns, formed millions of years ago, all pointing heavenward. These rocks became dwelling-places for Christian Orthodox monks and today you can visit six monasteries that are still functioning. You can also visit a prehistoric cave and admire how people lived in the area 130,000 years ago.

    Then, explore the town of Kalambaka and learn about local society and how it has developed under the shade of the Great Rocks. For lunch you can enjoy delicious local food in a nearby village or learn all about local wine by visiting one of the best wineries in the area.

    Overnight in Meteora

  • Day 3

    Pindos - Athens I In search of the divine in the Greek mountains

    This day is dedicated to a road trip in Pindos, the most scenic mountain range of central Greece. You will explore the little-known Forest of the White River, a wild area of small mountain villages hidden in the depths of a massive forest.

    We'll also show you the secret path to one of the most beautiful -but rarely visited by tourists- monastery with thirteen domes, before visiting the spot where three rivers meet. Here you can take a dive in turquoise waters and continue your drive through the gorge to enjoy one of the most scenic routes along the Pindos Mountain range before you head back to Athens.


All the places and things to do that are not to be missed during this trip!


Visit Delphi, ancient Greece’s most sacred site, but also the less travel roads of the Pindos mountain range. 


Reach the top of incredible rock formations to admire the great orthodox monasteries of Meteora, perched on soaring rocky promontories.
