Tour Description

Thessaloniki - Kerkini Lake

We depart to Kerkini Lake with the luxurious bus of “Tsokas Travel” along with our English- speaking trip attendant, at:
– 08:00 from the “Statue of Venizelos” Aristotelous Square & Egnatia street

We reach the dam of the picturesque Kerkini Lake in the area of Lithotopos. Each season of the year the lake hosts different species of birds, therefore every visit hides a different surprise for the traveler. The beautiful flamingos though, can be found there all year round and their characteristic pink plumage colors the blue surface of the lake giving enchanting views combined with the verdant surrounding landscape. The horse riding area is located next to the dam where we can enjoy a ride and feel part of this wonderful natural scenery (optional and upon notification).
Later on, we have a coffee break and then continue our trip to the east part of the lake, visiting a traditional farm with impressive buffalos that walk next to us; observing their movements in their natural environment and learning their unique history.

Kerkini - Vironia

We visit also the historic village of Vironia, to enjoy our lunch break in a traditional greek tavern that during the end of the 2nd Balkan War (in summer of 1993) was used as a Greek Military Command Center. There, King Constantine and the prime-minister of Greece, Eleftherios Venizelos, signed a peace covenant making history and doubling the size of the country.
We depart to Thessaloniki at around 14:00 enjoying the way back through the perimeter road of the west side of the lake. Leaving behind the enchanting scenery we will experience not only a part, but the whole Lake Kerkini in total!
