Kerkini, the lake
that seems like a cinema scenery.
from Thessaloniki & Halkidiki (summer program)
Kerkini lake is an artificial lake situated in north-eastern Greece, around 100 km away from Thessaloniki, in a natural region most unspoiled and famous for its beautiful landscapes of forests and mountains, green planes and water streams. Though artificial, Kerkini lake has turned into an important landmark where wildlife has been able to develop. Today this is one of the most relevant birding sites, as it is located along the migratory flyway from the Balkans to the Aegean Sea. As the area is naturally a marshland, it is home to buffaloes and other wildlife. This excursion will let you enjoy one of the most unknown and original regions of northern Greece. In the proximity of the lake, you can enjoy a boat tour, rent a bike, or you could go even horse riding. Enjoy a long walk and stop at a local coffee shop or tavern to taste the local products, take beautiful pictures, and breathe unpolluted air. The natural beauty of the region, the high ecological significance of the lake and its contribution to the agricultural development of the surrounding valley are the reasons that make it worth visiting.
