Rhodes Sunset Hiking Tour In Detail
On your Amazing Sunset Hike Profitis Ilias, you meet in the quaint village of Salakos, located on the foothills of the mountain Profitis Ilias.
The path up the mountain is fairly gentle, for this reason it is also suitable for children. You walk among ilex, pine and olive trees and admire views of the Aegean Sea, the coastline of Turkey and some of the nearby islands.
Once at the top we learn about the history of this unusual Greek tourist attraction. We visit some former Italian buildings built by the Italian Colonists in 1929 and 1932. All were built in an Alpine style which is a novel sighting on a little Greek island.
You visit the two hotels of the time “Elafos” and “Elafina” and the “Villa de Vecci”, house of the former Italian Governor of Rhodes. No visit would be complete without a visit to the Byzantine church of Profitis Elias from which the mountain gets its name.
After a short snack, we head back to Salakos, stopping on the way for the highlight of our hiking tour – the sunset!
The colours of the sea, the trees and the sun calmly setting on the horizon all add to our once in a lifetime experience.
