Valley of the Butterflies Bike Tour on Rhodes

Valley of the Butterflies
Explore the scenic Valley of the Butterflies by bike. You'll follow a rural, nearly car-free asphalt road. Enjoy views of the surrounding landscape covered in pine and olive trees before ascending along a dirt road to a small church in the middle of the forest. From this vantage point, you'll enjoy incredible views of the west coast of Rhodes.

Next, descend to another small 16th-century church as your guide shares stories about local religious traditions. Continue along the dirt road, passing through orange and olive groves on your way to a traditional village. Rest your legs and enjoy authentic Greek coffee at a kafeneio (coffee shop).

You'll pass a few more small villages in the island's interior before reaching the forest of Filerimos. The trail gets quite steep here, so you can opt for a car transfer up to the Filerimos archeological site. After a short break, you'll descend back down by bike (or car) and enjoy lunch at Ialysos Beach.
