Prespes Lake Kayaking-Vigla Mountain Ski resort poder skiing

Prespes is a unique “green destination”, located in Florina, in northern Greece. The region of Florina is only two hours away from Thessaloniki and is located in the North West. It consists of two lakes known as “small Prespa” and “Large Prespa”. “Prespes lakes” is a spectacular region and an ideal destination for walkers who do not want to commit to a strenuous trek.

The “Prespes region” is one of the most beautiful corners in Greece, combining a magical mix of mountains, green valleys, and wonderful lakes. Talking a walk in the region sounds like a great idea for those who enjoy hiking in a remote area. This is a tranquil corner of Greece that has remained unchanged for centuries.

The region of Prespes is one of the national parks in Greece, which is part of the Natura 2000 network. Due to the unique flora and fauna in the area of Prespes lakes, the region was included in the network of protected areas in Europe.

The National Park of Prespes is a unique wetland with amazing natural beauty. This place, though, is not as known as it should among both Greeks and foreign visitors.

The lakes of Prespes are boundaries different than the usual. They are natural boundaries that separate Greece, Albania and Fyrom. It is important to mention that they are so stunning that people who visit the Great Prespa and the Small Prespa are totally magnetized by their beauty.

The Great Prespa

The Great Prespa Lake is the biggest lake of the Balkans with a stunning traditional settlement really worth the visit. “Psarades” (which means “fishermen” in Greek) is a unique village which is on the lakeside of the Great Prespa with remarkable samples of stone and brick Macedonian architecture. Naturally, you should definitely visit the taverns and experience the taste of the traditionally cooked fish from the lake.

Activities

Ski Center: If you find yourself in Prespes or generally in the region of Florina, you can enjoy skiing at Pisoderi, the ski center of Vigla.

Adventure: The area is ideal for adventure fans. Prespes Lakes have so much to offer that even the most demanding nature lover will find their favorite sport among the great variety of activities that can be practiced here. Some common examples are Lake Kayaking, biking, climbing and hiking.

Vrontero Village: Worth the visit not only for its beauty but also for the small museum of fossils. If you are daring enough and you are seeking for adventure, leave the conventional road network and go off-road all the way to the Kokkalis cave.
