Our day is the perfect way to explore the north part of Athens with its mountains, lakes, traditional villages, mythology and the local life here in Greece.
Starting our journey towards the small village of Vothonas where we head straight off road along the lake of Marathonas which has been created through the Marathonas dam. On top of the hill we will have our first view-stop to enjoy the magnificent view over the lake.
Next stop is the village of Afidnes which is built at the East entrance of the Parnitha Mountain, where we join the locals for a coffee break and we have time for a little walk around.
From here we are driving up the mountains to Lake Beletsi before we make our way through the forest to the chapel of Prophet Elias from where we can see the small gorge and enjoy the amazing view.
A delicious meal consisting of starters and a traditional main course from the oven or the grill (vegetarian option available) all to be accompanied with unlimited local wine and bottled water, is waiting for you to taste at a traditional tavern.
Once refreshed we continue our journey passing by the former royal forest and gardens, heading towards north outskirts of Attika, where we have time to visit our last highlight, the lovely winery. Wine tasting and walk around the facilities will be a perfect closing for a beautiful day in Attika.
This day is packed full of amazing photo opportunities with excitement second to none. You certainly won’t forget your fun day out with Safariclub !
