Why Rhodes has been named as being the ‘Walker’s island’….

If you are a hiker then the fresher climate autumn brings can be particularly inviting. If you are looking for an especially memorable ramblers holiday destination in the next coming months, why not head to the scenically spectacular Greek island of Rhodes?
At just shy of 1400 square kilometres, Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese islands. With coastal paths, kilometre after kilometre of wine producing fields, dramatic mountain ranges and dense emerald forests, is it understandable why Rhodes has been simply describes as being a ‘walker’s island’.

Given the fact that Rhodes is generally considered to be a ‘walker’s island’ and the ramblers holiday destination, there are several walking holiday groups established throughout the island.
