This is a relaxing trip on which we combine two famous attractions, the beautiful Valley of Butterflies and the quiet island of Halki (Chalki).
Our first stop is at the Valley of the Butterflies on the western side of the island of Rhodes, which lies approximately five kilometres south east of the village of Theologos (or Tholos). The Valley of the Butterflies (Petaloudes) is one of the most attractive destinations on the island especially during August when thousands of butterflies of the Genus Panaxia (species Quadripunctaria Poda) overwhelm the valley in order to reproduce.
You will have the opportunity to explore the lush scenic valley for approximately 1-1.5 hours.
After leaving the valley, our second stop is at Kamiros Skala Harbour where you will embark on the boat to the idyllic island of Chalki in the Aegean Sea, some 6kms west of Rhodes. With an area of 11 square miles it is the smallest inhabited island of the Dodecanese. Here you will have time to relax and enjoy the island and crystal clear sea.
