Kerkini lake is an artificial lake situated in north-eastern Greece, 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. It is one of the most relevant birding sites, as it is located along the migratory flyway from the Balkans to the Aegean Sea. The area is naturally a marshland, so it is home to buffaloes and other wildlife.

After we pick you up from your hotel, we will start our trip towards the famous lake Kerkini, an artificial lake situated in north-eastern Greece, around 100 km away from Thessaloniki, in a natural region most unspoiled. There, you will have ample time to enjoy the amazing scenery, admire the migratory birds that use the lake as an important stop during their travels, see buffaloes and other wildlife! 

In the proximity of the lake you can enjoy a boat tour, rent a bike, or you could go even for horse riding, the choices are many! After we spend the day exploring the lake and the surrounding villages, we will return to Thessaloniki late in the afternoon.
