On this day tour from Athens, you'll head to nearby Lake Stymfalia and enjoy the opportunity to explore the local Greek countryside, stopping at ancient villages along the way. Get ready to take the scenic route out of the city, pay a visit to the Environment Museum, and enjoy traditional tavernas before a spot of shopping!
Stymfalia Lake is a wetland with important biodiversity integrated into the European Network of Protected Areas NATURA 2000. It is an ideal place for the 133 species of protected, threatened and endangered birds, and it is a heaven for many migratory birds. Of biological interest are the widespread species of fish that live only in this lake, Phoxinellusstymfalicius, which somehow endure the periods of the drought of the lake.
On this tour, we will find the Stymfalia Environmental Museum, which is located on the slope of one of the hills surrounding the lake. Here you will find everything there is to know about the local environment and its importance. You'll also get to see how the local environment has affected the progress of human activity. You'll also get the chance to visit the open aquarium with live fish and plants of the area.
