With the exception of high summer (mid July and August), where the weather can get extremely hot sometimes, walking and trekking on Rhodes island is a truly enjoyable experience almost any time of the year. With a remarkably diverse landscape new perspectives open up on foot and often the view extends over to other islands or to the mainland of Asia Minor.
We suggest that you do not hike alone or at least let your hotelier or landlord know where you are going. Sometimes the stony paths are difficult to find; In addition, some routes are rarely shady. Bring some stamina with you, and you will be rewarded with hidden beauties, such as extensive flower carpets in the spring, lonely chapels and secluded bays, which also offer a wonderful opportunity to cool down. Depending on the route, the differences in altitude can be considerable, as usually one moves far away from any civilization. Start your trip early in the day. The best time to start is at sunrise. On the one hand, this is the most beautiful time of the day, on the other hand, you make sure that with the emergence of midday heat a large part of the route is already done.The landscape of Rhodes, with stunning views along the coastline and beautiful forests and mountains waiting to be explored, makes hiker hearts beat faster, but the paths and routes are not yet well marked and mapped, and some of them neither well-maintained. So if you are worried about getting lost and / or appreciate easy transfers to your start and finish, you can book a hiking holiday with a tour operator or join a local hiking tour.
