Nature enthusiasts will love a day excursion to discover the magical Butterfly Valley, a natural reserve area located 28 km from Kallithea.
This 600 acre nature park is home to countless species of butterflies. Although the best time to visit is spring, when the butterflies are in their adult stage, Butterfly Valley is a perfect year round destination for those wanting to experience the island’s fascinating flora. The Oriental Sweetgum are a particular highlight, and the reason so many butterflies are drawn to the Valley. Take a hike through the park and you’ll be rewarded with a couple of waterfalls and a river that makes perfect picnic spots – or opportunities to cool off.
