East Macedonia and Thrace in the north of Greece is one of the most unexplored regions of Greece, ideal for nature enthusiasts, for lovers of adrenaline sports, for sea and summer adventures and for so many more that break the stereotype of the Cycladic style of holidays.

Discover more and you will be amazed! East Macedonia and Thrace could be a new & cool destination.

From the glorious city of Kavala to the multicultural beauty of Komotini, our journey was full of fantastic surprises. A mix of an important civilization of the past centuries comes together with an unspoiled green nature full of lakes and national parks, high mountains with waterfalls, endless valleys, exotic beaches, picturesque towns and beautiful villages. It is a place where you can go for skiing in the morning and on the same day go down to the beach for a swim or even visit the nature reserve where flamingos hang out all year round.

A trip to East Macedonia and Thrace is an experience you just can not miss when in Greece! Enjoy!

Flamingos in Greece? Yes, thousands of them are here all year round together with rare species of birds like eagles, pelicans, and so many others.

 

 

Cave

The cave of Aggitis river. Thousands of meters inside a cave just in the middle of nowhere. This is an old water mill that was built during the Ottoman Empire in order the water to reach the valleys of tobaccos.
