Go Hiking in Meteora
The landscape of Meteora is something to be enjoyed and appreciated, and there’s no better way than on a hiking activity. A network of hiking trails lead to and around the monasteries of Meteora, providing active families with a fun way to explore the area.
Whilst these hiking trails in Meteora can easily be followed without a guide, families on a tight sightseeing itinerary might prefer to use the services of a local guide. Find out more here about family hiking experiences in Meteora.
Visit the Natural History and Mushroom Museum
If you have an hour to spare whilst visiting Meteora with kids, make sure to drop by the Natural History and Mushroom Museum. Part fascinating, part kitsch, it’s a fun way to learn about some of the fauna and flora that can be found in the Meteora area.
In particular, the kids will love the environmental scenes, and the guides to the mushrooms that can be found there. Whilst not an essential visit whilst in Meteora, it acts as a good break from sightseeing and possibly the heat for a little while!
See a magical sunset in Meteora
Greece really is a country of sunsets, and the sunset at Meteora can be one of the best of the best! If you have visited Meteora on an independent road trip, you will most likely have your own transport in order to search out the best sunset spots. If you don’t have your own transport though, perhaps you should consider our sunset tour of Meteora.
Our family sunset tour of Meteora combines a tour of the area, visits to the monasteries, and finishes with witnessing the sunset at the end of the day.
