Karditsa is one of the prefectures of Greece. The prefecture is known for its beautiful countryside and the western half is dominated by the mountains of Pindos. The Plastiras dam and the synonymous lake, situated to the south, supply water to the plains. It is one of the biggest artificial lakes in Greece (holds up to 400 million cubic meters of fresh water) and framed by the fir tree peaks of the Agrafa Mountains, one of the most beautiful.
Like home: I stayed in a friend of mime, but there are many cute, traditional motels that you can stay.
Almost famous: Enjoy your holiday biking around the lake, kayaking, rock climbing and hiking, horseback riding and 4×4 adventures. Celebrities do it, why don’t you?
Dress up: As warm as you can in the winter, and even at spring or summer times take a jacket with you because you are in the mountains.
Yummy: Enjoy grilled and stewed meat.
The three Greek words you must learn before visit lake Plastiras:
Λίμνη (limni): means lake
Χιόνι (chioni): means snow
Φύση (fisi): means nature
