What you can expect

Enter a world of idyllic lakes, quaint walkways, and thousands of vibrantly coloured butterflies fluttering all around you in the Valley of the Butterflies, a true gem of the island of Rhodes. A visit to a winery with tastings of local vinos completes this quintessentially Grecian experience.

After you're picked up from your hotel, take a relaxing drive across the northern end of Rhodes to the Valley of the Butterflies, one of the island's most attractive destinations. This marvellous ecological setting features winding rock pathways that make it easy to observe its many shimmering lakes, rustic bridges, and lush foliage. Get up-close looks a thousands of butterflies displaying their colourful wing patterns—a few might even land on your shoulder if you stand still enough.

When you're done exploring the valley you arrive at the dock and step onto a boat and drift out to sea for a short cruise to Halki, where you're greeted by a driver who's ready to escort you to some of the island's most notable places of interest. Make your way to Pantamos, a secluded, sandy beach that offers the perfect introduction to the island's tranquil way of life.

Take some time to explore the many shops and taverns that dot the coast of this magnificent island, and maybe treat yourself to a nice meal. After you've had your fill of basking on the beach and enjoying the sites, make the journey back to Kamiros Skala, where a coach waits to transport you back to your hotel.
