The Best Photography Spots in Meteora Greece. If you are a photographer or a photo enthusiast you came to the right place.
When you think of Greece, you think of islands and beautiful crystal clear blue waters. However, Greece also has an amazing mountain range.
Meteora is located in Kalambaka Greece. What is Meteora? Meteora is the actual rock formations that you see in Kalabaka Greece and it stands for Suspended in the air. Meteora has a long history dating back 50,000 years. The oldest man-made structure can be found here dating back to 23,000 years. Crazy to think about right?
The easiest way to get to Meteora Kalambaka, (remember Kalambaka is the actual city), is via train. You can take a train from Athens to Kalambaka. The journey will take you about 5 hours possibly a bit more. If you want to rent a car you can do that too and drive yourself to Meteora. There are no rental car companies in Meteora so you have to do everything in Athens.

Photography Guide to Meteora Greece
Upon your arrival in Kalambaka, you will notice the epic rock formations known as Meteora. If you arrive there by train there is really only one way to do this and to do it right. What you need to do is contact my friends at Visit Meteora and sign up for their sunset tour. They will take you to all the epic locations listed here. That’s the way I do it.
If you arrive by car then what you want to do is take the Epar.Od. Meteoron-Kallitheas road. This is the road that will take you around all the monasteries, and of course all the epic photography spots.
There are four main photography spots you must visit. Do not get me wrong, every corner of Meteora is incredible, however, these three spots are a must when you are there. From a photographers perspective.
The gear we recommend is a good camera and the holy trinity. A wide-angle lens. 14-24mm or something similar. A 24-70mm or something similar and, of course, a 70-200mm or something similar.
If you do not have these particular lenses, do not worry; something similar will be just fine. It would be best if you also had a tripod.
