Excellent place to chill and enjoy realy wild Nature. Best experience was a guided boat trip with Nikos Galios from Limneo Guest house organised for just my family which was fantastic, its best to wake up at 6:30 am and get the best light for photography! Nikos is a photographer and bird guide with a vast knowledge of the Lake and he helped me get some once in a lifetime shots of Pelicans feeding, flying and taking off ! Also large groups of flamingo flying, and black grebes, great creasted grebes,cormorants, and many others. He was an expert at positioning the boat and turning off the engine so we difted close to the birds without disturbing them. He will tailor the trip to fit your photography and bird watching requirements. Highly recommended ! We will stay in his guest house next time as it is the best placed accomodation for the wildlife veiwing and as he is such good and knowledable company !

I was on a photography trip and enjoyed my time on lake Kerkini, it was wonderful, the Pelicans were constantly around and followed the boat as we left the harbour as they are given fish from the boat and the fisherman. Really wonderful place to visit and would recommend.

I went there to take pictures of bird life. Nice guided tours to see the magnificent pelicans, but also flamingos, herons, cormorants and lots of other birds

Spent 3 nights in Kerkini and went on 2 x 2hr boat rides with itavros dot com (also runs Lemneos hotel and works with others like ihnalatis guesthouse). Nikos is a fantastic guide - knows the lake and birds very well. Great for wildlife lovers and photographers.

Having visited in April we missed the flamingos which leave Lake Kerkini in February. The little boat ride from Mandraki took us out to the middle of the lake and we saw water buffalo, different kinds of birds. The tranquil sail on the water and the magnificent sight of all the buffalo and birds and all this nature spread out before you, you do not realise it is man made (formed 1932 after water dam was built and area was flooded). It is also declared as a National Park (Ramsar Convention) and home to about 300 species of birds from all over the globe and one of the most important wetlands in Europe.

Great Place to chill, the view is awesome! You can go on amazing walks around the lake or even rent a boat to the lake and see the beautiful birds. Recommend to families and friends.

A must see if you are in the area, or not. Indulge at least on a boat ride at all seasons, Lithotopos or Kerkini are good areas to find a ride with very different experiences. OIKOPEREIGITIS in Kerkini offers canoe rides, sunset ride is magical in the lake

You must make a boat trip. I suggest summer, because the water level are high. You can see the Greek buffalos and plenty kind of birds.

A must to see when you are in Kerkini. A boat trip in the lake to see and take photos of the hundreds of birds.
