A very unique feature in the Balkans, the plateau of Kapeli features tall oaks among daffodils and ferns. The oak plateau, known also as Ilia’s balcony, also contains chestnut trees, plane trees and different subspecies of oak, Erica, cystisus, walnut trees, and fruit-bearing trees. Sadly, the greater area has undergone significant deforestation. The area is ideal for horseback riding and cycling. It is also an important bird area in Greece, affirming its high environmental characteristics.
