It has two lakes located in the northeast; one, in 2002, revealed a lost village.
Its geography includes part of the Parnitha ranges in the southwest , with a huge mining area in the southeast and mountains in the south, including Helicon ; more cover the west, including mount Parnassus, where the prefecture's only ski resort is located ; and more again in the north, with a few forests and hills in the east. Its longest river, the Cephissus, lies in the central part, where most of the low-lying areas of Boeotia are to be found. Two lakes lie to the northeast, and have been considered a wetland.
Its climate ranges from hot summers to mild-to-cool winters, while the northern and eastern part are often more likely to experience cloud during the later part of the day. Stronger winter conditions are very common in areas higher than 1,000 m, and summer here is a little cooler than in the low-lying areas.
