Description

Explore more on the island of the Knights, Rhodes, on a semiprivate premium safari tour for up to 6 or 8 persons per vehicle. Discover the mountainous northern non-tourist parts of Rhodes Island from West to East, far away from mass tourism and crowded places, through the natural beauty of the mountains whilst enjoying the best panoramic views.

 

Starting our day tour from Rhodes cruise Port, we are heading towards the east side of the island and we are going to navigate on a mixture of on and off-road routes in the peaks of the mountains with  panoramic views, wild life and stunning nature. Our adventure day continues by following a German Italian war route with historical points of interest through villages like Archipoli, Eleousa, Profit Ilias, and Embonas. During the ride our experienced driver-escorts in each off-road vehicle provides you with lots of local history and information, stories and insights, as we pass through small villages, monasteries, and chapels. The hidden off-road paths through the dense vegetation give us the opportunity to marvel up close the natural beauty and enjoy the heartfelt hospitality and local knowledge of our escorts. Get ready for a day to remember at unique places that only a four-wheel vehicle can approach. Continuing our day tour from east to west Rhodes we reach the small traditional village of Ancient Kameiro where our lunch stop takes place, with the best panoramic view of west Rhodes. Fully refreshed we then continue our tour, following an easy asphalt route back to your cruise ship.

 

Our escort drivers with the help of the premium off -road vehicles of Uncharted Escapes will offer you the most exciting day in Rhodes, allowing you to take in the best panoramic views of Northern, East, and West Rhodes with opportunities to capture every moment, embrace the local hospitality while enjoying the professional yet relaxed service.
