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.
You are transfered back at the hotel at around 3pm.
