Overview

The must see and must drink tour on Rhodes! Hike the Valley of Butterflies, one of the most attractive destinations on the Island and an excellent place for those who seek the beauties of nature.  Then visit a local vineyard and winery to taste its wines and enjoy traditional dishes on its veranda with a view at the vineyard. Did you know that Rhodes was the first island in the Aegean to cultivate a vineyard and make wine? Its no coincidence that in ancient times Rhodians were considered the largest wine merchants in the Mediterranean. Todays wines are excellent too and you have the chance to find out yourselves!

Our tour starts by picking you up from the hotel with our comfy air conditioned vehicle (pick up time ~09:00am). Arrive time at the Valley of Butterflies 10am. approximately.

You will love the peaceful walk through the shaded, green valley with its small river and the beautiful waterfalls. You are permanently surrounded by butterflies camouflaging themselves against the tree trunks as you walk up towards the monastery at the top, or rest for a while on one of the wooden benches along the way. The Valley of Butterflies is a unique nature reserve, which apart from its aesthetic value, it is also the site of the only natural forest of Liquidambar orientalis (Oriental Sweetgum trees) in Europe, and a resting point for the Jersey tiger (Panaxia Quadripunctaria), a nocturnal moth.

Two hours later, you are on our your way to the local vineyard and winery. You walk through the vineyard, watch how wine is produced at the winery and visit the open air museum with vintage tools, machines and vehicles.

Then you sit at the large veranda having the vineyard in front of you, where you taste the wines and have a meal with plenty of local dishes. You can buy bottles of wines with labels not found in the market, exclusively made for the winerys visitors.
