Ideal for visitors from the region of northern Greece.
Arrival on Saturday morning on Lake Doirani and its settlement, which is located 75 km away from Thessaloniki on the northern border of our country.
While passing through the city of Kilkis we suggest to stop and visit the cave of Kilkis that is located at the foot of the hill of St. George, featuring rare decoration of coral material, stalactites and stalagmites that confer unique beauty. The cave has been deemed suitable for cavetherapy, in order to help treat diseases such aschildhood bronchial asthma.Then, we can visit the Archaeological Museum of the city that features interesting exhibits.
After arrival at Doirani, we settle in the hotel and we can either tour the lake area with its abundant natural beauty or visit the location “Hilia Dentra” in the forest of Mouries that is located approximately four kilometers to the north. There is a beautiful recreation area in the center of a cluster of old oak trees, aged over 400 years, there and we can drink a coffee and enjoy the beautiful nature of the forest of Mouries, a beautiful natural forest with mixed vegetation of oak and ash that has been declared a "Natural Monument".
The coastal route that we will follow from the settlement Doirani to the northern end of the lake and the location "Hilia Dentra" is magnificent.
In the area of the lake, we can enjoy the great peace of the place and be enchanted by the amazing sunset where the waters of the Lake redden as the sun sets.The crystal clear waters are ideal for fishing throughout the year.
On the next day, Sunday, we can engage in some of the activities in the lake like boating, fishing, biking or even work out in the facilities provided and of course taste the fresh fish of Doirani in one of the fish restaurants that offer local delicacies and carp. Doirani is famous for its unique fishing practices and in the village there are fishing facilities that operate throughout the year.
To conclude our trip and while taking the road back, we can follow the road to Drosato and maybe visit a few other settlements, before we leave the area.
