Overview

Did you know that Rhodes is one of the greenest islands in Greece? Due to numerous underground streams and springs, there are numerous verdant valleys with rich flora on the island. The Valley of the Butterflies or Petaludes (Πεταλούδες) goes through the Canyon of the Pelekanos River and forms an ideal ecosystem for the rare species of moth – Kalimorphos Panaxia Quatripunctaria or Jerseytiger moth.
