Kalymnos has a Biological Clock like no other place, the most abundant time for flowers and herbs is January through May. Crocus here bloom in November so you see it is very different here in Kalymnos.
We offer 3 Herb Walks a Private Walk, a Sunday Walk and in certain times of the year a 2 Hour Walk.
All Day Herbal Walks begin from our store, Naturally Kalymnos in Pothia, located just 50 meters South of the Taxi Station on the oneway road going towards the port. It's on the left a yellow 2 story Greek Neo Classical building just before the road turns left.
Up stairs in our Herbal Workshop and Leture room where we will enjoy a cold Herbal Tea as we layout our plans for the walk and watch a brief presentation of plants and past walks in different seasons. This way you'll have an idea of just how amazing the plant life in Kalymnos is! Walks vary in where we go it depends on what plants are in season and where they may be most plentiful for this particular Herb Walk. An Herbal Walk kit is provided so you'll have what you need to harvest various herbs on our walk.
Exactly where we go depends on the time of year but we do go to several places to see a variety of what the land has to offer. We will take a lunch break, where you may have a snack, meal or a refreshment. (Not included) Once we have rested we will depart for other areas to continue collecting.
Transportation is not included, though we can take up to 3 with us in our car.
Private Walks originally created for customer that wanted a one on one Herbal Walk at their pace. We've expanded it to include those in your party, up to 4 adults in the price and if there are more than 4 adults it's the same per additional person as our All Day Herbal Walk and we'll keep it just the members of your party. It's more intimate and very relaxed, we go with your pace. We do include transportation for Private Walks. Children under 8 years old are free.
2 Hour Herbal Walk begins from our 2nd store Naturally Kalymnos 2 in Masouri, at the Hotel Plaza. The store can be reached either through the hotel lobby or outside it has it's own entrance to left left of the Hotel as you face it down the stairs.
From there we will depart by foot, to a special place nearby, yet away from the hustle of the road. We select the places we go for their abundance and variety of Herbal Offerings.
For the Walk we recommend, drinking water, light snacks, sunscreen, comfortable walking/hiking shoes, camera, hat, sunglasses. Remember during the summer, the sun is hot! *warning sandals are not recommended as many plants have sharp thorns and spikes!
