The lush, green island of Lesvos island, or Mytilini as it is also called, is like no other Greek island and perhaps no other place in the world.  Virtually unaffected by the mass tourism, Lesvos is the perfect place to visit for people who want to experience the real Greece. Lesvos is blessed with great beaches, pine forests, villages, birds and wildflowers, castles, petrified forest, scenic harbors, museums, monasteries, hot springs, and more than 10 million olive trees. Discover the traditional villages and meet some of the warmest, friendliest people in all of Greece. Lesvos is the perfect destination with amazing food, wine & Ouzo. We suggest 10 to 14 days ideal length, however the itinerary can be tailored made to fit your preferences.
