Lake Kerkini offers one of the few birdwatching opportunities in Greece. You can watch a plethora of birds either alone or with an organized group.

HIKING :

You can wander and explore the nature in the paths of Lofos Pefkon, around Lake Kerkini, in Nimforema Canyon, in Xiropotamos, in the Grove of Palaiokastro. You can go hiking with the local guides or alone and find the route that suits you best, easy, medium or very difficult and… lose yourselves in the natures beauties.

BOATING:
