logo Rhodes


Rhodes is an island without inaccessible mountains, steep slopes or wild canyons. The Rhodian countryside has unexampled hiking routes that will give you the chance to walk across old trails in landscapes of outstanding natural beauty, to see rare species of flowers, to quench your thirst from springs with crystal waters. Info Many tourist agencies organize hiking excursions during the tourist season. You can find more information on hiking on Rhodes in the Municipality of Rhodes website    
A very pleasant and effortless route through the verdant mountain of Profitis Elias that dominates over the villages of Eleousa, Apollona, Platania, Dimylia and Salakos. The trail is built and begins from a steep “front” of rocks that lies above Salakos village at an altitude of 220 meters. Nearby are the springs of the Rhodian bottled water “Nymfi”. The trail leads to the monastery of Profitis Elias, at an altitude of 610 meters.
The route begins at the north entrance of the Valley of the Butterflies, where the Museum of Natural History is located at an altitude of 150 meters.
The ascent of the highest mountain of Rhodes, Atavyros (1,215 m) is not an easy task. One hour and a half of ascent and equal time of descent require, at least, a good physical condition and the right equipment. It is necessary to carry with you water since you will not find any springs or wells at the route.
