Full description

Be collected at your accommodation around 9:00 AM. Then head to your first destination, Filerimos Hill. Here, visit the monastery of Our Lady and the remains of the Ancient Acropolis of Ialyssos, one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes island. Walk along a Golgotha, a tree-sheltered pathway with a series of shrines with scenes of the Holy Passion. This footpath leads to an enormous imposing cross. You can admire the outstanding view of the villages and bright green valleys from the top.  Next, visit the Valley of Butterflies. This is a unique and peaceful ecological setting, which is a true representation of local nature, with narrow rock walkways, lakes decorated by water lilies, rustic bridges, running waters, waterfalls, and resting places loaded with millions of brown-red butterflies.

Visit the local museum there, and admire the large variety of different species and intricate photographs.

You will return to your accommodation around 2:00 PM.

The evening before the trip we got the information by phone again when we would be picked up. The driver was on time and very friendly. The mini bus (for about 20 people) is air-conditioned and travels quickly, giving you the chance to see a lot in one day. Upon arrival you will be given a short briefing on where to go and the time you need to be back on the bus. We were traveling with two children, so of course you have to watch the time a little more, but it's enough (1 hour Filerimos Hill, 2 hours Butterfly Valley). The view from the hill with the cross is beautiful and the entrance fee for the monastery (6€ per adult, children free) is definitely worth it.

Only the ride is included. Entry to Filerimos Hill is 6€ per person to visit the archeological sites (and toilet), otherwise just enjoy the peacocks and the view. Entry to Butterfly Valley is €5/person (toilet 50c). The path is bumpy but very beautiful. There is a way up to the monastery and one in a kind of ravine. There are also many snack options.

This is a must do trip! The pick up and drop off was so easy and communicated perfectly. Filerimos Hill, the views when you get to the top are breathtaking. Our daughter loved the peacocks and was a highlight for her. Valley of Butterflies, sensible footwear is a must. The steps and pathways are very uneven so sandals are definitely not a good idea. It took us about 30 minutes to get to the top and the last 100metres is definitely the worst part but the butterflies make it worthwhile. It was amazing seeing so many flying around you, there was something magical about it. would 100% recommend doing this, you will not be disappointed
