A unique opportunity to visit Butterfly Valley by comfortable air-conditioned minibus and taste the best local wine, olive oil and honey with our local authorized English speaking guide.
Winery in Rodos follows a tradition of 2,400 years! A story from those early days tells how the Cretans, jealous of Rodos' fame for high quality wine, copied Rodian amphorae in an attempt to pass off their own wine as Rodian.
On this tour you will taste different wine varieties, extra-virgin olive oil from ancient olive trees (yes, you read it right - sample the same oil that our ancestors used centuries ago), and local natural honey infused with thyme, pine, orange blossom and different spring flowers.
Before wine, olive oil and honey tasting you will have free time at Butterfly Valley (in Greek “Petaloúdes”), where every year, at the end of the wet season (late May), thousands of butterflies attracted by the scent of the Oriental Sweetgum trees cover the entire landscape.
Apart from this unique nature reserve's 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. An excellent place for families with children who wish to enjoy the beauties of nature and examine the life cycle of butterflies as part of their summer holiday.
