  • Kokkinos Springs. In the area of Dafnos is the beginning of the Kokkinos River that ends up in Mornos Lake.

mornos lake

  • Mornos Lake is a very impressive landscape and is an important achievement for Athens as a fresh water source.

  • Vardousia has fir forests that surround the mountain and dozens of steep slopes that look like tiny Alpic needles during the winter. Due to its altitude (2495metres) and other characteristics, it attracts hikers and climbers from around the world.

    Vardousia has fields that are an excellent biotope for wild prey (wild pigs, hares, and partridges.) In the mountains there are also some rare species of eagles.
