The emblematic river Arachthos flows through some of the most beautiful areas of Greece. It originates from the northern Pindos and passing between the mountains, Lakmo and Mitsikeli flows into the Amvrakikos. Along the way, it crosses green and impressive gorges, giving us unique images and experiences.
Between Arta and the Tzoumerka Mountains is Lake Pournari 25 minutes from the hotel. It is an artificial lake, which was created by the construction of a dam on the river Arachthos near the settlement of Pournari. This dam is the second largest dam in Greece and holds the waters of Arachthos controlling the flow of the river. Lake Pournari is home to many varieties of fish, such as carp, wild boar, wild trout and eels. Many birds, such as mallards, kingfishers and many others, find refuge here.
When the level is high we paddle just above the sunken settlement of 120 years. However, when the waters are low, this settlement comes to the surface and can be visited.
The area is full of hiking trails which end in hidden “treasures” in the forest. Waterfalls, caves, stone bridges, abandoned settlements, hidden lakes in the forest and much more will give you unforgettable moments.
Alone or with one of our expert guides you can explore a secret mountain paradise…
The area is suitable for 4×4 driving and on-off motorcycles, almost all seasons but especially spring, summer and autumn. Its terrain offers a number of paths and forest roads, where the visitor can enjoy his favorite outdoor activity, on all slopes and in all terrains.
