Stunning images of ice-covered forest in northern Greece (photos)Steep ice-covered ridges formed in the forest of Lailias of Serres, northern Greece

The recent snowfall in Greece coupled with extremely low temperatures created some spellbinding landscapes all over the country, according to protothema.gr.

Some daredevils braved the risks and climbed steep ice-covered ridges that formed in the forest of Lailias of Serres, northern Greece. Equipped with the necessary tools and defying the height they began ascending the precipitous edge with the ice axes to reach the top.

The Lailias forest is situated high on the mountainside of Vrondous and is considered as an area with noteworthy flora and fauna.

The wonderful tall forest comprises beech and pine trees and covers an area of 33.000 acres, a unique paradise near the town of Serres (25mm), linked to plenty of local traditions and stories.
