Traveling to Greece: Peaceful Lake Tsivlos

Zelos Greek Artisan tips for traveling to Greece, Lake Tsivlos

I wanted this week's postcard to give a bit of calm during these busy Spring holidays and this picture did it for me!  If you're spending a few days in Athens, try to steal a day to visit Tsivlós Lake (Límni Tsivlou).

This peaceful oasis is only two hours away by car, and you'll love the break from the frenetic energy of the capital. Put on your hiking shoes and explore the vast nature, the green trees, and the magnificent lake where you can kayak, canoe, and even try stand-up paddleboarding! You'll find plenty of tavernas nearby for an authentic Greek meal or enjoy a rich cup of Greek coffee & traditional fruit preserves to give you an energy boost for the drive back!
