East Macedonia & Thrace

Thracian Meteora


The European path passes through an area of incomparable natural beauty, the Trikorfo. The road reaches the bridge of Kompsatos River in Trikorfo. The European path passes through the bridge of Trikorfo. The initial part of the trail has a little slope and crosses the tranquil setting of a small plateau on the west bank of the Kompsatos River, which is known from the ancient times and is even mentioned by Herodotus. Then the path stretches up to the hill and ends at the uninhabited Astraea village. The houses are stone built Astraea with traditional architecture style and slate roofs. The village lies at the foot of rocky ridges, like Meteora, the tops of which are nesting rare birds of prey. After the village, the trail enters a virgin beech forest with natural water sources, where lives a wild herd of horses. The access to the Thracian Meteora can be madevia the provincial road of Iasmos – Polyarnos - Euthumo. After Polyarno there are two paths with adequate signage leading to the Thracian Meteora. After Iasmos it is advisable to use only 4X4 vehicles. In Polyarno there is a hostel. Because there is not a permanent staff available, you must contact the municipal authorities of Iasmos before using the guesthouse (tel 2534350100)
