The natural beauty of Northern Greece

Are you ready for an unforgettable adventure? Pack your bags, fuel up your car, and get ready to embark on a road trip through the breathtaking landscapes of Northern Greece. From the natural beauty of Florina and the charming village of Nymfaio to the waterfalls of Edessa, the Pozar thermal baths… A route full of stunning views all year round. 

First stop is Florina, a magnificent place in the northwestern part of Greece. This picturesque region is heaven for every nature enthusiast, as its lush forests and crystal-clear lakes (Lake Prespa and Lake Vegoritida) provide a serene backdrop for relaxation and reflection. The surrounding mountains offer breathtaking panoramic views that will leave you in awe. A walk along the shores of Lake Prespa will allow you to marvel at the crystal-clear waters nestled in the middle of mountain slopes and if you're lucky, you might even spot some rare bird species that call this area home.

Make sure to include in your list the surrounding villages of Florina as well. The village of Meliti, for example, is famous for its traditional stone houses and charming atmosphere.

Next on our trip is the picturesque village of Nymfaio, which, according to UNESCO, is among the ten most beautiful villages in Europe. Nestled in the heart of the mountains, this village will definitely take you back in time. As you wander through the cobblestone streets, you'll be surrounded by traditional stone houses adorned with colorful flowers and wooden balconies. The village has managed to preserve its authentic character, making it an ultimate destination for those seeking tranquility and a glimpse into the past.

Nymfaio is not just a picturesque village but also home to wildlife. Nymfaio Wildlife Refuge is home to various species, including brown bears and wolves. Explore the trails that wind through the forest, offering opportunities for birdwatching and wildlife spotting. In addition to its natural beauty, Nymfaio also boasts a rich cultural heritage. The Folklore Museum is a must-visit, showcasing traditional costumes, tools, and artifacts that offer insight into the village's history!

Known as the "City of Waters," Edessa is your next destination that will enchant you with its breathtaking waterfalls and unique landscape. The city is famous for its impressive waterfalls, where water cascades down the cliffs, creating a mesmerizing spectacle. Take a walk at the waterfalls’ park and enjoy the view of a nature setting filled with tall trees and flowerbeds located in the northeastern part of the town. Follow the Edesseos River, also known as the Botha, flowing through the town. You’ll discover seven waterfalls, but one of them is the most impressive. Keranos drops 70m among plane trees that were seeded centuries ago. In the city center, there is the open-air Water Museum, where you can learn about Edessa’s industry, which was exclusively water-powered. Before leaving the town, don’t forget to visit the Giannakis watermill, which has an aquarium and a reptile house, the first in Greece to have fresh-water fish as well as snakes, turtles, eels, crabs and even baby crocodiles.

Finish your route in the tranquility of nature in the Pozar Thermal Baths, which offer a unique opportunity to relax and rejuvenate. The thermal baths are nestled in a lush valley, surrounded by dense forests and towering mountains. The natural hot springs are beneficial for your health and well-being, highly recommended for rheumatism, skin conditions, and circulatory problems, and provide a soothing experience that is both calming and invigorating.

The Pozar Thermal Baths feature a series of pools and waterfalls, each with its own temperature and depth. Take a dip in the warm waters and let the stress melt away as you soak in the natural beauty that surrounds you. The baths are open all year round, making them a perfect destination for both winter and summer road trips.
