Program

Kastoria - Prespes

You will meet and be greet in the head offices where you will get acquainted with your BMW rental motorbike. You will do a short briefing on the tour, the itinerary, and then you will take off for the tour.

You will visit the traditional village Nestorio, where each summer on the banks of the Aliakmonas River, the well-known River Party takes place with the participation of many artists and local celebrities before heading to the Nymph of the North; the city of Kastoria.

This charming furrier city, whose beauty will most certainly seduce you, is built amphitheatrically on a narrow peninsula, mirrored in Orestiada Lake and nestled in between Grammo and Vitsi Mountains.

You will tour around the lake and enjoy its beauty and tranquility as well as observe some of the 200 different species of birds that find shelter in its calming waters. You will also make a stop by the Dragon’s Cave; a cave system, where you will get to see seven underground lakes and rooms with astonishing stalactites.

Finally, you will discover the Neolithic settlement of Dispilio dating back to 5,600 BC.

Prespes Lakes

Only 45 kilometers west of Florina, on the borders with the Republic of North Macedonia and Albania, lies one of the most important wetland habitats in Greece and the first transboundary protected area in the Balkans.

The Prespes National Park is an impressive wetland with amazing bio-diversity. The Prespes park consists of the Megali (Big) Prespa and the Mikri (Small) Prespa. The latter boasts two islets: Agios Ahilleios and Vidronisi.

The islet of Agios Achilleios, one of the most picturesque places in Northern Greece connected to the shore with a 650 meters long floating bridge, is renowned for its Byzantine monuments, among which stands out the three-aisled basilica of Agios Achilleios.
