Athletics & Sports (2)


Water sports

  In a place, which is well known for the affluence of superficial water resources, water-sports win progressively more and more fans.
  Until the end of the last decade, only the Yachting Clubs of Edessa and Giannitsa made advantage of the potential that the region offered, by training their athletes in Lake Vegoritis and in the River Loudias.
  Nowadays, new tourist products are offered, among which the descents on kayak-rafting in the River Moglenitsas and boating in Lakes Vegoritis and Agra-Nisiou-Vritton stand out, which provide the potential of a closer contact with the nature for the visitor.
  In addition, during the last years, a modern Rowing Center by the River Loudias was created to cover the needs for sports, and also recreation, and to become a new tourist pole.

Climbing - Trekking

  The presence of the imposing massif of Voras (2,524m), Pinovo (2,145m), Tzena (2,182m), Paiko (1,650m) and Vermion (2,027m) creates the ideal conditions for climbing and mountain hiking in the Prefecture of Pella.
  The possibility of approaching inaccessible areas, usually undisturbed by human intervention, the changing landscape and the variable level of difficulty of the available paths constitutes a challenge for a lot of people.
  The European Path E4/6, which starts from the Pyrennes and connects, through a network of mountain paths, the European Countries of the Mediterranean Sea, traverses Voras. The crossing of the Ramno-Bor (Isso Pefko) gorge in the area of Loutra Lourtakiou constitutes one of the most exciting mountain experiences, since it leads to the springs of Agios Nikolaos current, where water and vegetation compose a beautiful scenery.
  Acknowledging the particularity and the potentials of the region, many mountain associations form all over Greece, organize "rambles" during the last years to the mountainous region of Pella.
