What To Expect

Valley of the Butterflies
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.

Beautiful place to visit. We visited the day after it opened & still saw loads of Butterflies

While our short stay on Rhodes we had a VIP Tour with a Guide called Peter, we asked him to take us to Valley of the Butterflies & he said it was closed (this is what the Hotels were telling the Guides so they would take you to Lindos or another beach). I told him it had opened the day before & we weren't really expecting to see any or many Butterflies, but the Valley itself looked amazing. It cost us a total of 6 euro's......they do discount for disabled people but you need proof or full price has to be paid. So glad we visited this amazing place. The Valley itself was amazing & such a natural place to be & then the Butterflies were everywhere. At first we only saw the odd Butterfly, of which was everything due to their beauty & then we realised that everywhere was covered with Butterflies..........they looked like Ivy Leaves over everything, until a child threw a stone into an area near where we were standing & 50 plus Butterflies were everywhere & the colours were so beautiful & such wonderful colours. (Please note that throwing of anything while in the Valley of the Butterflies is not allowed & they do ask visitors to be as quite as possible). This one of our favourite place's we visited while we were holidaying on Rhodes for 11 days. Please make sure you visit this hidden & hardly spoken about place.

Un bosco incantato. Un parco curatissimo con lo spettacolo delle farfalle che ti allietano la passeggiata tra ruscelli e alberi dove loro vanno a riposare. Merita di essere visitato
la passeggiata naturalistic di Rodi

Nel pieno centro di Rodi, un bosco che non ti aspetti. Una passeggiata meravigliosa nella natura dove all'improvviso ti accolgono migliaia di farfalle le cui ali si mimetizzano con le rocce e gli alberi, ma se volano si colorano tutte di aranzione.
Un peu monotone

Visite dans un endroit boisé et ombragé. Il faut bien regarder pour voir les papillons qui ne sont pas très colorés. La visite au bout d'un moment nous a paru un peu monotone.
