Plastira Lake is an artificial lake completely harmonized with the natural landscape, rich in sightseeing and ideal for mountain activities. The remarkable dam at Kakavakia gave life to the lake, which is impressively framed by the Agrafa peaks, foul with firs. Some of the activities waiting for you are bicycling around or even in the lake, kayak, mountain sports, horse riding and 4x4.

Plastira trail race 2

The lake was an idea of the well known Greek general, Nikolao Plastira, at 1928.  Years later, the dam and the lake became reality and the general gave his name to the lake, as he didn’t live enough to admire it. Clear blue water, wonderful watersides, firs and colorful people enjoying in every way the seductive landscape of the mountain lake, this is Palstira Lake.
The region is also foul of activities. Mountain sports, cycling, horse riding, kayak and cycling in the crystal clear waters of the lake, or for the more adventurous paraglide and glider. You may also cross the canyon of the Big Rema. Using your own equipment or renting it from one of the many companies in the area, be ready for new adventures at the Plastira Lake.  
The region of the lake is also known for its delicious dishes. Enjoy roasted and cooked meat, grilled trout and traditional cooked dishes and accompany them with some Melenikola wine. The traditional, stone-made taverns are famous for their great food and hospitality. In the morning or early in the afternoon visit one of the many cafes alongside the lake to enjoy your coffee.
