Day trip "The volcanic west of the island"

This unforgettable trip takes you to the volcanic west of Lesvos. We guide you through untouched natural landscape to a fairytale forest with volcanic rock and unique flora. Wild yellow rhododendrons bloom there in May and June - a true splendor.

We visit the beautiful village of Antissa – an excellent place for a coffee under the enormous plane trees.

We continue to Ancient Antissa. According to an old legend, the head and lyre of Orpheus was washed up on the beach - still singing and playing.

We no longer hear the lyre playing, but you can sometimes find small, stranded fragments of fossilized sequoia trees on the beach, from the time that the nearby Sigri ancient forest was petrified by volcanic lava.

 

The ancient harbour village of Kalo Limani invites us for a swim at the sandy beach. We can also enjoy a good meal at the taverna at the sea.

Costs of this private, guided full-day trip in a 4x4 vehicle is 150 EUR (no food/drinks/entrance fees) for 2 people, any additional person is 40 EUR extra.

Start time, meeting point or pick-up from your accommodation on arrangement.
