There were so many excellent memories, but overall it was the chance to explore so many aspects of Northern Greece, from the coast to the mountains to the lakes, with a hugely knowledgable and enthusiastic guide. Read full review

The boat ride on lake Kerkini was particularly exciting as we got close-up views of birds in their nesting environment. As avid birders, we were pleased with the varied species observed, and with our guide. Read full review

The boat trip on Lake Kerkini was wonderful and provided great views of the thousands of birds there. Also a number of unexpected moments as our guide found unusual birds like Spur Winged Lapwing, Stone Curlew and Penduline Tits. A memorable few days - didn't want to come home. Read full review

The trip as a whole was memorable: well organized and all the expectations were met! Traveling around the lake with the good guide and the nice boat trip to check out the pelicans was an exciting experience Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

This trip is all about observing nature! It proves that tourism can be a significantly important tool for conservation, by respecting wildlife and biodiversity in every possible way!

Specifically:

* Wildlife species are not harvested, consumed, displayed, sold, or traded.

* No wildlife is held captive.

* The trip supports and contributes to biodiversity conservation, including natural protected areas and areas of high biodiversity value.

* Interactions with wildlife, taking into account cumulative impacts, do not produce adverse effects on the viability and behaviour of populations in the wild. Any disturbance of natural ecosystems is minimized.

* Information about and interpretation of the natural surroundings is provided to travelers, as well as explaining appropriate behaviour while visiting natural areas. In order to keep our environmental impact as low as possible we use group transportation (minibus & boat) and walk as much as possible.

This is a trip to Kerkini Lake, a Nature 2000 area, wetland under RAMSAR convention and Important Bird Area. Unlike many other protected areas in Greece Kerkini Lake and surroundings is protected in an adequate manner and illegal activities that harm the environment are limited. This has to do with the fact that recently it became more popular as an eco-destination. Locals respect the wildlife and understand it brings in money.
- Minimal use of car to bird sites, no long distances
- No internal flights
- Family-run guesthouse, using local products and supporting the local economy
- Walking between bird sites and to dinner sites
