The iconic frozen lake Petron
Lake Petron has a seductive beauty, especially during the winter months. It is one of the four connecting lakes of Amyndeon that belong to the European network of protected areas Natura 2000 and is a refuge for 130 species of birds, among which quite rare.
In winter, due to the extremely low temperatures in the area, the lake for a long time acquires a thick layer of ice that covers most of it, creating a stunning alpine setting that any landscape photographer was dreaming of.
The lake is located south of Florina, just outside Amyndeon (Amyntaio). Access from other prefectures is easy via the Egnatia Highway, leaving the exit at the junction of Koilon and heading to Ptolemaida and Amynteo.
