Amazing birding experience. Visited in November and observed 71 species of birds including flamingos, dalmatian pelican, and black stork. This location makes for an amazing Thracian nature adventure. We day tripped from Bulgaria, which means you need ID for the border crossing although you are in the EU the entire time. Do not miss this unique opportunity.

A great example of what can be achieved by a group of passionate enthusiasts. The lake has great access for bird watching. We will definitely be back in the spring.

Nature at its best. 1.20 minutes drive from Thessaloniki. Unique place in Europe. Thousand of water buffalos swimming in the crystal clear waters. Don't miss to taste buffalo meat and sweets made of buffalo milk

If you are in the region, visiting this place is a must. The scenery is very beautiful and if you visit it during dawn or dusk he colors are tremendous. You can see a lot of different endangered species of birds and animals.

Apart from the scenery itself there are a few interesting activities around the lake. I specifically suggest horse riding or bicycling around the lake.

A visit to the Kerkini lake is certainly worthwhile. On the northside of the lake surrounded by picturesque mountains, one can go to the damside. There's a little bit of info on the lake, but very little to see other than the lake itself. Don't fear but take a boat (7,5€). These cross the lake to the shallower parts to the east. Here is vast bird sanctuary. Early May there were legions of cormorants as well as nesting pelicans. Other birds can be seen and the boat travels through a submerged forest.
In total the boat journey lasts 1,5 hours.
