  • I was on a Sunday in July in this area on visit. The tour that I did with TUI consisted of a trip on the beautiful Lake, where we spoonbills, cormorants, pelicans and many other birds and then saw a jeep safari to the inland water meadows where we located the Water buffaloes could behold. Truly magnificent. A must. The day ended with an excellent home-made lunch from the local hotel. On this place I would like to have a number of days. Nature and tranquility.

  • Beautiful place. You can do a lot of activities. Also you can taste buffalo meat or sausages.
  • A charming place, next time we hope to go when we can see more birds.
  • This lake was beatiful but tourists throw pollution in there
  • Lake allocated right next to the north borders of Greece in Serres County. It a basin of river Strymonas who's flowing from Bulgaria. It is a Natura protect area giving the chance to visitors variety of birds and animals to observe. Local life are bonded with the lake's life offering amenities and products worthing the visit.
  • One of the most beautiful lakes in Greece. Good for bird watching, as many spieces of birds both rare and protected exist in the area. Also fish variety, beautiful forests and mountains around the lake. Boat tours are available. Local people are producing many traditional products (i.e. steaks, sausages, milk, sweets) from Buffalos which exist in the area. Good accommodation options at the nearby villages (i.e.Kerkini village).
