Detailed description

Discover the west of Rhodes while hiking to the ruins of Kamiros

The exclusive hike in Rhodes takes you along a magnificent hiking route from Mount Profitis Ilias to the remains of the ancient city of Kamiros, which is close to the coast. After your pick-up you will be brought directly to the mountain and can enjoy the fantastic view from there before descending towards the coast. The route leads you through a beautiful landscape and you will be accompanied by the chirping of the circades and the scent of the pine forests. While hiking through Rhodes in Greece you will pass gorges, original farms and their cultivation areas and the wonderfully laid out vineyards. What many do not know, the Aegean island of the sun god Helios is a true paradise for hikers. Enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains, the valleys and the sparkling water in the distance during the hiking tour. Step by step you get closer to the sea.

Shortly before the coast you reach the ancient city of Kamiros with its ruins, which still give you the impression of how its former inhabitants lived there. You will visit the remains during the hiking in Rhodes and learn a lot about the city and its demise from your hiking guide. It was destroyed by a severe earthquake and is therefore also called "Greek Pompeii". The place still exudes ancient charm, even if hardly more than the foundation walls of the houses are preserved, but also parts of the temples are still easily recognizable. After exploring Kamiros, the hike takes you to a Greek tavern on the beach, where traditional dishes are served. There is also time for a refreshing jump into the sea and some relaxation on the sandy beach before you are taken back to your starting point tomorrow.

In Rhodes the hiking trails are in the mountains, through valleys and forests or directly on the coast. There is a suitable hiking route for everyone. On this tour you will experience unique nature, an ancient city, breathtaking views of the coast, traditional cuisine and you can refresh yourself in the sea and enjoy some beach feeling.
