Tour Description

The trip starts from Dispilio, an impressive archaeological site located on Orestiada Lake in Kastoria. In fact, it is a prehistoric lake settlement which gives further insights regarding the habitation structures during the Neolithic Period. Next destination is Kastoria, the beautiful furrier city settled between Grammos and Vitsi Mountains. Explore the city by taking a stroll around the charming lake, admiring the breathtaking view of this unique scenery. You will definitely be overwhelmed by the natural landscape and the tranquility of the place! Lake of Kastoria also known as Orestiada, is a lovely lake surrounded by mountains hosting over 200 different  water bird species. 

At a close distance from the lake, you will meet the scenic district Doltso, a picturesque location with remarkable traditional mansions and buildings of great architecture. Most of these buildings have been converted into museums, like the traditional mansion Nerantzis Aivazi that dates back to the 18th century, where today the Folklore Museum of Kastoria is housed. However, there are plenty of attractions and activities to explore in Kastoria, such as the Byzantine and post-Byzantine churches, as well as the historical walls. Do not miss visiting some of the famous fur stores as Kastoria has a long tradition in fur clothing! Last stop is Prespes, a thrilling wetland consisting of two lakes, Mirki (Small) Prespa and Megali (Big) Prespa respectively.
