Welcome to Dadia National Park

The National Park of Dadia – Lefkimi – Soufli Forest is situated on the southeastern end of the mountain range of Rodopi, in the Prefecture of Evros, on the crossroads of two continents. It constitutes the geophysical space where many species of flora and fauna of the Balkan peninsula, Asia and Europe thrive. The location of the Forest, along one of the most important migration routes for birds of the Western Palearctic ecozone, makes this forest one of the few regions in Europe cohabitated by so many and different species of birds of prey and where three of the four European species of vultures can be simultaneously found [the Eurasian Black Vulture (Aegypius monachus), the Egyptian Vulture (Neophron Percnopterus ) and the Eurasian Griffon Vulture]. The age old woods, the rocky elevations, the meadows and fields scattered in the forest and the many gorges with their rich riparian flora offer a multitude of suitable biotopes for the nesting and the finding of food for many different species.
