I am an organic farmer and beekeeper based in Rhodes. Through my work i was amazed by the native and indigenous plants of my beautiful island so i started the journey of herb hunting.What started as simple curiosity evolved into a way of living.For me a walk on the mountain is now an every day activity that includes nature observation,mushroom hunting,wild fruit harvests or even just creative-talking walks depending on the time of the year.

It was definitely a unique experience. The route was great and Michael - the host - felt like a person with great knowledge in herbs and the area. The most special moment was when we prepared a tea with the herbs we collected, I will never forget it and hopefully in the future I will have the chance to do it again. I recommend it to all. Thanks Michael.

Very welcoming hosts! We visited the activity with our 2,5-years son. And guys adapted their program for us. Thanks them very much for that! We spent 4 nice hours on their little farm and walking up to the hill. The root was really nice under the shadow of trees with fresh air. We saw lots of herbs and picked some of them. Also we tried fruits, herbal tea with local honey and sweets. Recommend this activity for tourist, who want to go into the wild (a little bit) and if you are not very strict on the service:) You will enjoy real Rhodes without touristic infrastructure.
