A Hot-Air Balloon Ride Over the Hanging Rocks of Meteora

There is no better way to enjoy the magical place of Meteora, than on a hot-air balloon, the owner of the company that organises the tours said in an interview with Praktorio 104.9 FM.
Meteora, which in Greek means suspended in mid-air, has one of the most famous and photographed landscapes in the world. Wind and water have eroded the sandstone rocks of the region into the fantastic valleys, formations and columns of stone.
The tours on hot-air balloons started last year and have mainly attracted Asian and Russian tourists, according to Michalis Karamberidis. “It is not easy to attract the Greeks, but demand from tourists is high, particularly the Asians who are looking for unique experiences,” he stressed.
The Russians are also interested in that kind of adventure, he added. “We have also signed a cooperation agreement with a Russian channel that wants to promote our company as more and more Russians are interested in Meteora, which is one of Greece’s assets.”
