Explore more of the island of the Knights, Rhodes, on a semiprivate safari tour for up to 6 persons per vehicle. Discover the southern non-tourist side of Rhodes Island from West to East far away from mass tourism and crowded places, marvel the natural beauty of the mountains and take in the best panoramic views of the sea.
Starting our day with pickups from Plimmiri village and heading towards Archipelagos, we get to know each other until we reach a traditional village where our first stop and break takes place listening local stories from your escort. After our morning break we enter our premium off-road vehicles and our experienced drivers-escorts will follow an off-road route through Kalathos Mountain. The escorts will provide you with lots of information regarding the local lifestyle, as passing through the picturesque villages of Laerma, Agios Isidoros, Monolithos, monasteries and chapels all boasting panoramic views, and sceneries adorned with natural beauty. Continuing our day tour from East to West Rhodes we reach the small traditional village of Siana where our lunch stop takes place in a local tavern on the square of the village under plane trees. Then we continue our day tour southwest, while admiring the beauty of the mountains from the one side and the Aegean Sea from the other, we pass through small villages of Apolakia, and Mesanagros, picturesque monasteries like Skiadi Monastery and other chapels that were of great significance during the time of wars. Heading south towards Katavia, we witness an alternative terrain with lush vegetation, just before we reach the asphalt route and return back to our hotels.
Our driver-escorts with the help of the premium off- road vehicles of Uncharted Escapes create the most memorable experiences, with the best panoramic views of Southern Rhodes, great photo stops, warm welcoming atmosphere, local insights and the best service in a professional and relaxed way.
