Itinerary description

Visitors can witness a spectacular phenomenon that rarely occurs in nature: an enormous number of butterflies, of a particular species called: “Panaxia Quadripunctaria”, is found in this small valley during the final stage of their life cycle. Every year, at the end of the wet season (July to September) thousands of butterflies are attracted by the scent of the Eastern Styrax trees, covering the entire landscape. Our Hiking Rhodes guide will accompany you throughout the route.
A beautiful 6 km walk in the famous valley of the butterflies, one of the natural wonders of Rhodes.
