Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / South Aegean / Dodecanese / Rhodes / Petaloudes / Valley of the Butterflies
Explore the world of colorful insects at Valley of the Butterflies, a nature reserve famous for sheltering a tiger moth species native to the region. Watch the small river flow through this protected zone, transitioning to a waterfall that plummets into a green pool. Get a close-up look at the sweetgum trees, which host millions of caterpillars. If possible, time your visit for the end of the wet season, when the caterpillars transform into colorful moths. Before you go, stop at the park's natural history museum and see displays about native wildlife and a state-of-the-art moth hatchery.
