One of the most beautiful challenges of the area of ​​Preveza is to experience the alpine landscape of Ziros Lake, an ideal destination for lovers of hiking, cycling, rowing and SUP. A hidden treasure in dense pine forest with high oaks, eucalyptus and holly.

The mysticism of nature in all its grandeur is revealed from wherever you may be, facing the surface of the lake. A huge natural mirror that reflects on the flat surface of the lakeside forest, the sunken trees, the opposite rocky shores and the sky.

Both its perimeter, alternating from the flat ground to a rocky and steep shore uphill and crossing slopes with enormous reddish rocks and with an excellent view of the lake, as well as the path that moves away from the lake and enters a golden-yellow forest with greenish Mountain slopes and red ravines until it reaches the unique geological phenomenon of the Red Clay (Terra Rossa) is impressive.
