Orange valley tour

The route starts at the entry to the gorge on the banks of a tributary of the Gadouras River. Before setting out we start with aerobic warm-up exercises.There are pine and cypress trees along the entire length of the route and as the trek advances the gorge opens up creating hillsides planted with crops.Watch the river frogs and crabs that love to hide under rocks or shaded pools.The river is also home to the microscopic gizani fish (Ladigesocypris ghigii) that manages to survive the winter’s torrential waters by swimming upstream, and the summer’s drought by taking refuge in pools with very little water. It’s rightly known as the island’s survival champion.Along the way, the tour passes by olive groves where you’re given the chance to smell local herbs.Crossing low banks and dry stone walls we come to the reservoir, and behind us are the ruins of a small village with old farmers’ houses.The trek continues on to its highest point offering an uninterrupted view of the valley with its pine forest and cypress trees, olive groves and the immense Kalathos Bay and the waters of the Eastern Mediterranean.The hill is home to Kammiri Monastery. From there we start our descent to the monastery through the pine forest.On reaching the monastery and its grounds, we do some more aerobic stretches, and yoga-inspired exercises.It’s now time for our meal of delicious Greek salad made with the abundant produce of Greece’s soil.Visit the interior of the chapel dedicated to the Archangel Michael and enjoy the view from outside it.We then take the trail through the pine and cypress trees and olive groves once again, and head down to our finishing point.There we board the mini bus and after a 10-minute drive reach Kalathos Beach where we do some gentle aerobics and yoga-based exercises to relax and unwind at the quiet beach bar.

General information

Who said that Rhodes is all about cosmopolitan resorts and sunny beaches?

It is also a hiking paradise offering so many places to the experienced hiker and to a casual walker too.

The size of the island is ideal for day walks since you can go anywhere you like on the island using our comfy van, walk for a couple of hours (or more depending on the route), have your drink or meal in a tavern with homemade food in a small traditional village and get back to your hotel within the day.

Whether you stay downtown / north Rhodes or in the south side, we can take you to the most beautiful walk paths of the island. Several routes pass by small mountain villages untouched by tourism where we stop, meet the locals and order drink/brunch/meal in the tavern, an experience that takes you back in time!
