The area of Vistonida lake - Porto Lagos has a great diversity. The south and the north banks of the lake are surrounded by reeds, riverside forests, Sweetwater lakes and also meadows.
The lake has 21 - 37 different kinds of fish, depending on the season of the year, and they attract almost 300 kinds of birds, like the egret, the flamingos, the pelican, the great white egret and some which are extremely rare like the pygmy cormorant and the lesser white fronted goose.
We will meet at the village Toxotes and from there we will move on south towards the sea. The legendary "Great Forest" that surrounds the river, creates a great sense of awe to whoever wants to explore this place which is filled with wild life. We are taking a short break for a cup of coffee and we have the chance to swim viewing Thassos island, depending on the weather, where Nestos river reaches its final destination - the sea. Later, we will take the cars and we will go towards Porto Lagos to see the picturesque church of Saint Nikolas, which is built on a small islet in the lagoon. We continue our tour to the west side of Vistonida lake towards the town of Xanthi to make our last stop there, in the old town (where you can have lunch or a cup of coffee) before we return to Toxotes.
Total duration: 7 - 8 hours.
