Your Itinerary

Loutra Pozar

The distance is 110km and lasts approximately 1½ hours. One explanation regarding the meaning of the name “Pozar” is “after the charcoal” while another one is “under the fire”, which forms an evidence that in the past the village was located in a different place that was burnt or set on fire and the villagers gave the name “Pozar” to their new village. We reach the enchanting Pozar hot springs, the spa into nature. The healing water infiltrates the ground and after going quite deep is heated up and goes back to the surface enriched with minerals and trace elements.Admire the beautiful gorge located in the majestic mountain where the river “Toplitsa” (in slavic language is defined as “the hot river”) flows through it forming small cascades and shallow shores. Nowadays is mostly known as the river of Saint Nicolas.

Admission Not Included

Edessa Waterfalls

The name Edessa means “a tower into the water” because of the intense presence of the liquid element in the city since the antiquity. We have free time to admire the impetuous waterfalls and capture the enchanting scenery; where the park of the cascades meets the edge of the rock, also known as the “eyebrow” of the city, is located, according to the famous greek author Menelaos Lountemis, “the step where God steps on to go up the sky”. The water comes from the springs of the mountain Kaimaktsalan (Voras) supplied constantly by the snowmelt of the mountain. We may follow our trip attendant-archaeologist for a walking tour to the traditional district of Varosi and visit the Water Museum or Sesame Mill of Flavors for an unforgettable experience or enjoy a nice meal in one of the traditional restaurants of the area. We depart to Thessaloniki at around 15:00p.m and we are back approximately after 1½ hours (16:30pm), making the same stops where we started from.

Although it was raining, we really enjoyed the trip to the Pozar Thermal baths and then Edessa waterfall. The bus driver Dimitrios did an amazing job driving in the wet conditions and we felt very safe. Eleni our tour guide was wonderful - very organised and caring with a lot of knowledge of the areas we visited. We loved bathing in the thermal baths. The water was warm and relaxing. There were change rooms and lockers nearby. The Edessa waterfall was amazing. You can get close up and even behind the waterfall. Lots of opportunities for great photos. Would highly recommend this tour. Booking with Ammon Express was easy to do online.

Had a horrible experience. My cruise ship was late and for this reason we couldn't join the tour. The company refused to give us our money back.

Nadine_S

The thermal baths were so warm and relaxing. We went in the second outdoor poor next to the waterfall. We bought some dried fruits and vegetables from the market there. The tour guide Lazarus was so helpful and friendly. The whole day was great value for money. Edessa falls were lovely and we had lunch at the restaurant there.

This was my first tour with Ammon Express. The whole trip was very well organized and the day itself was a delight. Lázaros, our Tour guide, provided us with alot of information, not only about Thessaloniki but about the country and its history. From start to finish i enjoyed his stories and at Pozar itself i was able to relax completely. I would book this trip again with Ammon if i ever go back to Thessaloniki, something i would like in the future.
