Botanical Tours

Ever thought of Greece as a botanical paradise? If you answer that question in the affirmative you belong to a minority. Many tourists have images of a dry and rocky place in mind when they think of the Greece they visited during their summer holidays. However, the overall diversity of flora species in Greece is astonishing: some 6000 have been recorded. Which has to do with Greece’s geographical position, its geological history and diversity of climate. Another intriguing fact is the singularity of the flora (and fauna). The country boasts the highest degree of endemism among plants (15%) in Europe and it is said that there was no need for Darwin to undertake such a long and excessively difficult journey to the Galapagos Islands to proof his point. He simply could have set sail to Greece instead! Let us take you on a much more comfortable journey in search of rare, endemic and delightful plants. Because, even in our times, there is still so much left to explore and observe.
