Some of our tours have a more general wildlife focus, in accordance with an ecosystem, which is made up of innumerous organisms: plants, bacteria, fungi, insects, amphibians, reptiles and so on. In Greece for instance one can encounter 59 reptile species. No other European country can match that number, nor the number of 12 unique, endemic reptile species. When sailing the Aegean Sea with our nature guide on board you may no longer see the “Venus de Milo” on Milos Island. However, the endemic Milos wall lizard (Podarcis milensis) and the Milos viper (Macrovipera schweizeri) are still around today. What’s best: with the help of our expert local guide they can be found and photographed!
Lovers of butterflies visiting Greece feel they have arrived in paradise, a synonym for Arcadia, named after the Greek region in the Peloponnese. And it is right there, that one can find so many different colorful winged wonders of nature. A weeklong search for butterflies, or Rhopalocera can result in a list of over 100 species. Whatever your interest, Greece’s boundless natural beauty will certainly satisfy your needs!
