Getting There & Away

For those without a car, a bus (one way €1.80, 20 minutes up or down, or all-day Flex ticket €5.50) departs from Kalambaka and Kastraki at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 4pm and returns to Kalambaka at 10am, noon, 2pm and 5pm. That’s enough time to explore at least three monasteries – Megalou Meteorou, Varlaam and Rousanou, for example. A popular option is to take the bus one way to the top and then work your way down and around on foot, finishing at either Moni Agiou Nikolaou on the Kastraki side, or at Moni Agios Triados on the Kalambaka side.

There's a useful bus stop on the Kalambaka–Kastraki road close to Vrachos Camping for the route between Kalambaka, Kastraki and Meteora.
