"A short drive through the forests of mountainous Rhodes island in Greece. Rhodes Island. Anyone veering off the beaten track will find an alternative Rhodes that is unknown to many, an island of striking wild flowers, tiny unique orchids and herbs and birds rarely seen in their European habitats. Despite a spate of devastating forest fires the island still has areas of virgin pine forest rarely featured in the guide books. And there are still small mountain villages where the locals will welcome you with a suma (local alcoholic drink) and spin their own tales."
