The Drimona Waterfalls are a location of exquisite natural surroundings. These gorgeous waterfalls can be found in North Evia, at an altitude of 620m and 4km after the monastery of St. David, following the road that starts at Rovies. The journey amongst the lush greenery provides a peaceful drive for the visitor. There are two versions as to the origin of the name: either from the thick oak (δρυς=dris) forest that surrounds it or the severe (δριμυ=drimi) cold that exist during the winter months.
The Forest Ranger’s office of the nearby area has created for the visitor, with great care and respect for the natural surroundings, a wooden kiosk with a small exhibition of local plants as well as fossils that have been found in the area. Also, through the construction with natural materials and trunks, they have built bridges and supports to allow the visitor to enjoy his exploration around these excellent waterfalls.
The river Sipias creates a lovely scene by spreading its waters down these superb falls. The water drops with force and momentum from a height of 15m into a crystal clear lake surrounded by cliffs and forest. This lushly forested lake is of great ecological importance due to the thick firs adjacent to the rare beauty of the black pines.
