The “sacred” side, Meteora, Olympus and more

The “sacred” side, Meteora, Olympus and more

A journey to mainland Greece through sacred places;
from Zeus to Jesus.

When is it best to travel?

April to October, to avoid the cold days.

Is this trip for me?

If you would like to know more about Christianity and Ancient Gods whilst also discovering the beauty and serenity in virgin natural habitats combined with delicious dishes then… just don’t miss it!

Gods were always worshiped in breathtaking locations,   

from Meteora rocks to Mt. Olympus and from Byzantine hermitages to Zeus’ altars. From the tallest mountain in Greece to the sandy coasts of the northern Aegean Sea.

A canvas painted with myths and religions,

with Byzantine churches in Roussanou’s and Anapafsa’s monasteries full of spectacular colorful frescoes and magnificent manuscripts, with marble altars of ancient Gods coming out of the still water and the green bushes of Dion, with landmarks of Balkan architecture in Ampelakia village.

“The eye of an insider”       

will take you to the less known corners of the Meteora “suspended rocks”, will show you Mt. Olympus through Enippeas, a heavenly river valley, will co-explore the oak and chestnut forests of Kissavos, and will introduce you to an ornithologist to show you the rich avifauna of Karla Lake. 

Have you not tried “burani”?   

A local recipe of a wild mushrooms risotto; it is simply delicious!

Come on, let’s go!         

Hike along the Enippeas canyon, the river, the small lakes and many waterfalls, climb with an experienced guide in Meteora, and take a tour of the coastal Venetico caves in inflatable boats, swim and snorkel.
