Waterfalls in Greece
Greece Waterfalls are perhaps one of the most unheard-of attractions in a country more known for its ancient ruins and Mediterranean islands. But believe it or not, they do exist and in a fair bit of abundance if you know where to look and if you time your trip correctly.
Now we won’t lie to you. It took a bit of effort to visit a waterfall in the country because there are so many other attractions to see and experience. Among these are signature attractions like the Ancient Greek Ruins (in Athens, Delphi, Mycenae, Epidavros, Olympia, etc.), Meteora (featuring cliff-hanging monasteries), and the incredibly beautiful Santorini. There were even charming surprises like Nafplio that made it even more difficult to make the time to go waterfalling.
So with all that said, we managed to squeeze one waterfall into our visit to Hellas (which is Greece in Greek; also written as Eλλας in Greek alphabet), and we had to go a little out-of-the-way to reach the Edessa Waterfalls way up in Macedonian Greece. But it was well worth it in our minds. Plus, it also allowed us to visit the historically important Mt Olympus as well as the Byzantine relics in Thessaloniki along the way.
If we’re fortunate to return to Greece, we’ll be sure to budget more time to visit the country’s waterfalls such as the Neda Waterfalls, Lefkada Waterfalls, and Vafkeri Waterfalls among others. But for now, our visit to Edessa will have to do.
