Tucked up near the mountainous Bulgarian border lies Lake Kerikini – a vast area of marshland that's a haven for rare plants, birds and wildlife. Going where coaches can't, you'll travel by both boat and off-road vehicle to explore all the hidden corners of Greece's premier national park. And after adventures on both water and land, there's a well-earned lunch of local favourites to enjoy.
It all starts in a traditional boat called a ‘plaves', to glide along the water and admire the idyllic natural scenery. Lake Kerikini is the premier birding site in Greece, so coming to a complete stop, you'll hear the sounds of over a thousand birds around you.
Afterwards, well-equipped off-roaders will take you to places around the lake where you'll realise what 4X4s are needed for. Powering through mud-puddles, you'll follow no particular road as you zig-zag through the park. Back at base, a well-deserved lunch is served, washed down with a few drinks to end the day.
