Bus Trip to Lindos Village & Seven Springs

1. Bus Trip to Lindos Village & Seven Springs

First, visit 7 Springs, which offers a cool, magical landscape at a real oasis, swamped in greenery. Water flows out from the springs all year around, and ends up in a small lake. You can get to the lake by walking through a narrow tunnel. The second stop after 7 springs is Lindos village, which is the most popular sightseeing destination in Rhodes. Discover its charming atmosphere, friendly inhabitants, and lovely sandy beaches. During your stay in Lindos, you can explore the village by strolling through the small narrow streets dotted with wonderful souvenir shops, cafes, and restaurants. If you prefer ancient sites, then a visit to the Acropolis is a must - the view from the top is breathtaking.

Easy Hiking Tour around Ancient Lindos

3. Easy Hiking Tour around Ancient Lindos

The tour starts with pick-up from your location and driving you to Vlicha, a seaside village located next to Lindos, on the east coast of Rhodes. At the start of the trail, following mainly dirt roads, you leave behind you the buzz of the busy road, and move towards the west. Soon enough you walk under mature pine trees, whose existence is clearly surprising on this dry rocky land around Lindos. You then follow a trail that passes on the foothill of vertical limestone slope and afterward visit an impressive cave and admire the remains of agricultural life – somehow forgotten here nowadays. Finally, the hike reaches its highest point and is time for some fantastic pictures of “Navarone Bay” with its azure colored water, or even some meditation on how beautiful this endless sea is. After some walking downhill, you will experience the first glimpse of the hill where the Acropolis of Lindos proudly stands. No words are enough to describe its beauty, so you will have the chance to go closer, roaming in the narrow streets of the whitewashed village of Lindos. Some free time will be given for visiting the archeological site. The last part of the hike takes you back to Vlycha following an alternative route that hides one precious secret gem. Then the bus will take you back to your hotel.

The driver was on time to pick us up from our hotel. Only received a brief explanation which way to go but no further guidance or at least a map or booklet. Bring watershoes and a small towel with to pass the tunnel. Clean and comfortable Sprinter bus with good airconditioning.

Great trip 7 springs a little dry and did not find them all. Tunnel you need a strong torch to see your way through and you have to wade through water. Acropolis stiff climb and even more steps at the top but worth the effort.

everything was very well organise ,the mini bus was on time and the driver very helpful .

Es war eine sehr gute Erfahrung. Ich werde auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen!

Great day, punctual, impeccable duration. Thank you
