Grevena info

The Prefecture of Grevena lies in the western part of Macedonia, next to Kozani and Kastoria, extends to an area of 2291 square kilometers (884.5 square miles) and is entirely mountainous, as it occupies a large part of the Pindos Mountain Range: Mt. Bouzio (2239 meters / 6717 feet) is the highest peak in Grevena. The capital is Grevena Town. The Aliakmonas River comes in from the neighboring Kozani Prefecture for a short visit, before it returns to it, enriched by the water of the Venetikos and Grevenitikos Rivers. Because of its location, Grevena Prefecture is one of the coldest ones in Greece, offering cool summers. The local economy is based on farming, small animal husbandry, and forestry. The area is not a major attraction for tourism, although there are therapeutic springs in Kavasila and a lot of very beautiful places for Nature lovers. Trekking, mountain biking, climbing, and skiing offer a wide range of choices year-round.

Sightseeing and tours in Grevena

In the surroundings you could have various activities and visit very interesting sites and other sightseeing. In details:
A visit to the National Park of Pindos, one of the most important in Greece, which was announced as a National Park in 1966 and lies between prefectures of Grevena Ioannina. The valley of Valia - Calda (local name, means Warm Valley) is also here. Its name is because it displays significant temperature variations throughout 24 hours, with very high temperatures during the day without a cloud and very low during the night. The frozen "Warm Valley" got her name euphemistically, as it is one of the most cold and wet regions of Greece. The landscape is impressive and except of the variety of morphological and vegetation characteristics, has also huge cliffs and rushing streams. The environment is very important for the welfare of a vast variety of species from the animal and plant kingdom.
The bridges of Grevena are the largest and most impressive throughout the Makedonia region. In 1995, due to actions of the Prefectural Administration of Grevena, the 11th Ephorate of Byzantine Monuments of Veria declared those bridges as preserved monuments. They constructed in similar style.
At an altitude of 1940 m and 1960 m there are two impressive ponds, on the sub alpine highlands of Mavrovouni Mountain, in Flegga.  Those ponds, which are known as Drakolimnes (Lakes of Dragon), are the symbol of the region, followed of many legends and have water all year around.
