Herbal Walk in Telendos
The boat leaves from Myrthies at 12 pm sharp. Transportation to and from Telendos is provided.
Flora is at its best from February until the end of June, it’s the green season. By then many of the herbs and plants are brown to various shades of gold, but other medicines come into their time. In Kalymnos, the land of Apollo, medicinal plants grow year round. The heat is extreme and usually there we do not see rain from May until September. Crocus here bloom in November…
You’ll want to bring your camera to photograph, video. We strongly recommend a hat, sunglasses, and sunblock as the sun can be very strong. Water to stay hydrated and a snack for during our walk.
Learn about the medicinal and culinary herbs of Kalymnos are famous, the harshness of the environment makes them like no other, even neighboring islands!
Learn the proper way to gather plants with respect for them and for nature. The next time we return the plants are healthier and more plentiful. It’s a matter of care-taking, giving thanks and honoring the plants.
Later we will stop and enjoy a Kalymnian light meal called Mezethes of Ouzo, fresh raw vegetables, olives, and octopus patties. Discuss what we saw answer questions and relax a bit.
Then you have the opportunity for private shopping at Naturally Kalymnos in Pothia or Naturally Kalymnos 2 in Armeos just past Masouri.
We look forward to meeting with you and sharing the history and the special plants of Kalymnos, the land of Apollon.
