The areas surrounding Volvi lake are very interesting with rare ecosystems. More than 200 bird species such as storks, egrets, flamingos, herons, protected by the Ramsar International Convention, spend the winter there. At Scholari, a village near the lake, one can see the age-long plane trees where egrets nest.
Near Nymfopetra village it is worth admiring the limestone formations among the wheat and tobacco plants, a complex of rocks with plenty of holes which the locals name nymphopetres (bridal stones). They claim that the stones symbolize a wedding procession which turned into stone for some unknown reason.
Several fish species can be found at Volvi lake. The seaside settlements of the municipality of Volvi, Asprovalta, Nea Vrasna and Vrasna have varied options for tours, meals, entertainment, sightseeing, getaways and beaches.
