Also known as Petaloudes Valley, this unusual nature park in northern Rhodes is known for the swarms of multi-colored butterflies between June and September. These creatures lay their eggs at the end of the wet season and are usually found clinging to the many Zitia or Oriental Sweetgum trees.
Discover Rhodes’ secret natural wonder – the Valley of Butterﬂies. The Valley of Butterﬂies is a unique and one-of-a-kind natural park, where every year thousands of colorful butterﬂies appear from middle of June to the end of September.
The valley is home to pristine lakes, ponds and charming wooden bridges that span the Pelekanos River. Enjoy the natural beauty as you stroll on romantic and quiet paths in the valley and forest. For the more energetic and adventurous, walk up the valley to an ancient Greek monastery offering stunning views.
This tour is perfect for those wishing to escape the crowded tourist sites and enjoy a peaceful, beautiful environment. During the tour, you will have the opportunity to buy a beverage, snack or lunch at a small restaurant that looks over a sparkling waterfall.
Departing the valley you will return to your hotel.
