Kaimaktsalan Ski Center

The mount Voras or Kaimaktsalan (local name which means "white mountain top") is the third highest mountain in Greece at an altitude of 2524 m. Kaimaktsalan rises along the Greek-FYROM border, while the bulk of the Greek section belongs to the prefecture of Pella.

The mount Boras is an attraction for naturalists and hikers, as well as thousands of skiers who visit the facilities of modern Ski Center of Voras, while the national team and most ski schools start their preparation there.

The Ski Center of Vora-Kaimaktsalan is 45 km from the beautiful city of Edessa and developed on the southeastern side of the mountain at an altitude of 2050-2480 meters. At the top of the mountain there is the beautiful chapel of Prophet Elias.

The rich and rare vegetation in Voras/KAIMAKTSALAN, which includes many flora species inaccessible in Greece and the wider Balkan region, supports a large number of fauna (birds, amphibians, reptiles), making the Voras' habitat important for the ecological balance of the site. An unusual feature of Voras is the existence of water bodies, even at very high altitude (sources of Skopia - Kremasi 2,400 m).

Many naturalist and mountaineering clubs organize trips to Voras and there are beautiful trails of outstanding natural beauty. One of the routes which are accessible to all walkers is leading to "Stream of Floros". The route starts from the junction of the shelter of Naturalist Club of Edessa in Voras and reaches the Stream across a wooded area with many waterfalls. The journey takes about 60 minutes to go and return.

Also, the area of the Ski Center in Voras at the position Spastiras is a forest road leading to the top Chadanoko (altitude 1787). The route takes about an hour (go-return). To the same top may be a crossing from the traditional village of Agios Athanasios through beech forest. The same path leads higher, on the top Piperitsa (altitude 1998) after four hours crossing. From the area of Agios Athanassios passes even the international path E 4/6 which leads to the Skopos of Florina through a beech forest and canyons. Total length of crossing: five (5) hours.
