Amazing Sunset Hike Profitis Ilias is what can only be described as a breathtaking experience. A unique opportunity to enjoy hiking in the evening under the shade of the many trees that line our path.

Amazing Sunset Hike Profitis Ilias takes you up the third highest mountain on Rhodes, Profitis Ilias and can be enjoyed by all – even if you are new to hiking.

The path up the mountain is fairly gentle, for this reason it is also suitable for children. We 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. We 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. How many people can say they have hiked at sunset on a Greek island? Indeed, the uniqueness of our hiking tourHiking at Sunset means that even experienced hikers will leave fully satisfied at the end of the day. And to end our hiking tour? Headtorches to light our way – the ultimate in adventure!!
