Ecotourism in Greece with your Children

Family road trips in the unique ecosystem of mainland Greece

The heart of the Greek ecosystem and natural life, mainland Greece, is rich in biodiversity and wildlife. Embracing virgin forests and important wetlands for migratory and predatory birds, protected by the RAMSAR Convention and the Natura 2000 Network, the regions of Epirus, Macedonia and Thrace are the crossroads of important water corridors, as well as cultural routes. 

From the years of Alexander the Great and the Roman Via Egnatia to the footsteps of St. Paul the Apostle and the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, the area reverberates the sounds and colors of multiple cultures. Traveling with kids in mainland Greece is a timeless family “safari” in Greece’s wildlife and history along and across water paths.

MAMAKITA itineraries include kid-friendly activities in rivers, such as Nestos and Evros; boat trips in lakes, such as Kerkini and Prespes; bird-watching in wetlands, such as Vistonida-Ismarida and the Messolonghi-Etoliko lagoon; hikes in forests, National Parks and authentic villages. MAMAKITA will also provide you with a large selection of family-friendly guided tours to explore the history, wild life, the local life and economy of Northern Greece, Macedonia and Thrace; Epirus, Zagori and Tzoumerka mountains; the region of Meteora and the city of Thessaloniki with an emphasis on sustainable travel and environmental awareness in a fun and creative manner.
