Varvara Waterfalls


Includes two waterfalls, ending with shrubs, almonds, shrubs, beeches, wild hazelnuts that grow all over, while the rocks in bright colors form a kind of a gate at the top. Both the location and the sense of calm, serenity and contact with the natural element make you think you have discovered a piece of heaven on earth.

Leaving your vehicle in the parking lot and entering the ravine you can see the two waterfalls. The old point was called “Angelusis” and the water ends up in Mavrolaka, the river that is the border of Olympiada-Barbara. The first waterfall is visible from above, while in the second you will feel the momentum of the water, even in the summer. The walking path of discovery is short (5-10 minutes) and both the wooden bridges and the right signage contribute positively to the pleasure of the unique landscape. The place is ideal for families with young children who are sure to be thrilled.

Barbara’s waterfalls are hidden in the dense forest belonging to Barbara, but are closer to the Olympiada. Following the asphalt forest road of Varvara-Olympiada, which is one of the most beautiful asphalt routes in Halkidiki, you will pass the characteristic 5 Vrises (this is called Krasoneri) and you will go down until you see the relevant sign on your left. Drive to the dirt road and within 2.3 km you must have your mind as you need to turn all the way down the “Fourketa”. After 900m you will be at the parking spot. If you go slightly to the left, then you will find yourself after 4 km on a quarry area, while if you continue on your way east you will reach Kalyvia Settlememt.
