Variety is the name of the game on this vastly contrasted excursion. Get back to nature at a renowned nature reserve, before a visit to the completely unspoilt and sleepy island of Chalki.
Journey to Rhodes’s fertile interior in the morning, headed to the ecological sanctuary that is Butterfly Valley. At this Europe-renowned nature reserve, walk under the canopy of the forest, alongside waterfalls and ponds rich in wildlife. From mid-June to mid-September this is home to hundreds of thousands of Callimorpha butterflies, attracted by the resin of its storax trees. They make for quite the spectacle.
Afterwards, it’s back to the coast where you’ll board your boat to Chalki. This sleepy island has pretty houses scattered around the harbour where small fishing boats are moored. Take a walk around and enjoy this idyllic island and get a feel for traditional Greek island living. There’ll also be time for a refreshing afternoon swim in Chalki’s crystal-clear waters.
