Lake Tsivlou, was created in 1913 by a landslide between the villages of Sylivena & Τsivlos. The lake is very deep and is fed by underground sources and forest streams. Lake Tsivlou is considered to be the youngest natural lake in Europe.
Our Canoeing Lake Tsivlou tour starts with us meeting at our designated point at the lake. We start our activity by hiking round the lake surrounded by a lush pine forest. We then gather for the necessary preparations and a safety briefing and hop on to our canoes and start off by practicing in the water! Our guides will paddle with us circumnavigating the lake, and depending on the group (families, adults etc) they will adapt the experience with racing, fun games etc coming up with a great mountain experience.
After our paddling experience, we will enjoy a traditional picnic by the lake.
