Discover the marvels of Rhodes on our diverse and comprehensive tour that includes the three most romantic, verdant, and scenic areas of the island. For serene moments and authentic island atmosphere, visit our beloved sights “Kallithea Springs”, “Butterfly Valley” & “Filerimos-Ancient Ialyssos.”

Overview

Departing from the busy city center, our local tour guide will first take you along the East Coast of the island to our first destination - KALLITHEA. It is a true jewel, filled with romantic sculptures, fountains, flower-filled yards pawed with black and white pebbles. This picturesque place has been made world famous by films such as „Guns of Navarone”! Amaze yourself with the landscape, learn about its history, hear stories about the SPA and its springs & baths. You will have some free time after that to discover the exhibition in the „Big Rotunda”, the little fountain with the „Eros” statue, enjoy your morning coffee at the beach cafe and soak up the atmosphere!
After, it is time to head to our second site on our TOP 3 list— BUTTERFLY Valley. While driving through Rhodes countryside with a beautiful landscape full of olive, cypress, pomegranate, citrus fruit trees, learn all about the unique ecosystem of the Pelecanos canyon. Rhodes is an extremely verdant island, with many areas of rich vegetation and natural beauty, and the renewed Valley is the most famous one! It got its name from the Kalimorphos Panaxia Quatripunctaria - a colored species of moth, that looks very much like a butterfly. They gather in great numbers during hot summer months (June to September). You will have plenty of free time to lose yourself in this green oasis.
Then meet your guide again to get on board for the third part of the tour! We will hit the road through the Trianda village and drive all the way up to the spectacular Filerimos mountain! You will be welcomed there by many peacocks naturally residing in the area. FILERIMOS is built on the site of the ancient Doric city of IALYSSOS, considered the oldest of the three ancient city-states in Rhodes. Take your time to wander along the old stone path towards the imposing cross, enjoy the scenic view of the West coast, capture a photo of peacocks or visit the medieval monastery. Do not be surprised if our guide will try to convince you to taste a specific liqueur made of seven locally-found herbs which recipe comes from Capuchin monks and is still kept in secret.
What a fabulous day trip!
