Pure nature brings you back to your roots ! A simple walk into the forest , collecting mushrooms with the childrens is a small adventure . I will recomend a walk into the wild forest , following the marked trails or your own instict !

within easy reach of Alexandroupoli in an area of hills and trees. The walks through the forest are beautiful. In spring there are 26 species of orchid. In Autumn there were the smells and sounds of the forest.
The vulture feeding station is best in the early morning but at 10am we saw 3 species of vulture here.

We visited the forest in August 2019.
The Dadia Information Centre located in village Dadia (and not in Soufli as depicted in Google Maps) provides useful information for the visit so you should give them a call prior to visiting.

Unfortunately, due to strong winds and risk of wildfires when it's hot, we were not allowed to drive, walk or mountainbike in the forrest.

Great opportunity to observe vultures but one should visit the observation base pretty early (at around 8.00)

The forest is very nice for hiking. It has locations for birds spotting (unfortunately we didn't spot any as didn't have too much time to spend). Also tortoises roam the park. We liked the hiking trails which are marked through the forest.

You have to spent time there, as it is a very nice experience, especially for children. The video must be seen in order to have a spherical view of the hard work of all people there. They really love their work and the nature and work for this, in this area of Greece/Europe. YOu have to also choose the sort trip with small van. It is a really in nature experience for all ages.

A great place that will give you the chance to walk in a beautiful forest through clearly marked paths, watch some of the rarest birds in Europe, learn about ecology and sustainable growth.
I highly recommend it for any couple or family with children.
Note: for the unwilling ones to walk the paths, there are minibuses to drive you to the watch point.

We were very lucky to see all three kind of birds that live in the forest!!!! Go early in the morning. The time you stay in the forest is short but it is worth going!!!!!

Dadia forest is a well preserved and run national park close to the Greek eastern borderline.
Home to a vast variety of wild birds like the big black vulture, it can be a perfect destination for families visiting the region.
In the information center, English speaking guides will tell you that you can watch a 20 minute video for your introduction. Then a small bus (15 seats) can take you in the main Observatory (10 minutes drive). This costs 4€ per adult, 2€ for kids ages 6 to 15. Alternatively you can take a trail which is around 7km in total. We decided to hike back on foot, on a nice trail mostly shadowed, which was no more than 35minutes.
The forest is well run by the staff. The trails are nicely marked and you can a hand a nice rest in the cafeteria in the end of the trails.
Important tip: if visiting during spring or summer, the earlier you visit it the better. Birds get warm and out of sight so you cannot spit them from the observatory after 10 or 11am.

You can easily drive there from Alexandroupolis, less than an hour drive. Worthwhile spending a whole morning
