Fraktou's forest is the only one forest that is not affected, touched or damaged by humans in Greece and one of the most important forests in Europe. It is located in the Northeastern part of Drama's county.

The road from Paranesti till Thermia is really good and you will definitely enjoy it. Northern on our road we will meet Platanovrisi's dam.

After the crossing named as "Zita", we are now moving on towards Fraktou's forest. Here the scenery starts to change as we will see pine trees through the whole forest.

We will get to know Fraktou's forest, as we follow the road. As soon as we pass Achladorema, we have arrived at the start of the path that leads to the three waterfalls. In just 300 meters we will see the first waterfall and a little bit further we will reach to the second one. Though, the most impressive one is the third which is found at the southern part of Fraktou's forest. It is a little difficult to approach the third waterfall because the path is quite uphill!

Next we will arrive at Achladoxchori and we will stop for a picnic. We take the cars to see the other two waterfalls again as we take the return way.
