Getting Around


Hobby Shop Helpful service for bike and motorbike hire (helmets included); electric bikes available.


Every two hours, buses leave for Kastraki (€1) from beside the Plateia Dimarhiou fountain. Three daily Meteora-bound buses (one way/all day €1.80/5.50) depart from the KTEL station, with additional pick-ups up at the fountain and Kastraki en route, between April and September.


Each of Kalambaka’s squares has a taxi rank. Taxis can take you to Kastraki (€4) or the monasteries (Moni Megalou Meteorou for example will cost around €10). Some drivers speak English, German or Italian, and offer tours for around €20 per hour.
