The areas surrounding Volvi lake are very interesting and have rare ecosystems, hydro-habitats, hydrophilous plants and trees.
More than 200 bird species such as storks, egrets, flamingos, herons, etc, which are protected by the International Convention Ramsar, spend the winter in these regions.
At Scholari, a village near the lake one can see the age-long plane trees where egrets nest. Near Nymfopetra village it is worth admiring the limestone formations among the wheat and tobacco plants, a complex of rocks with plenty of holes and which the locals name nymphopetres (bridal stones), as they claim that the stones symbolize a wedding procession, which turned into stone for some unknown reason.
Several fish species can be found at Volvi lake.
