Sunset hiking from Salakos to Profitis Ilias


7.5 km of walking and 500m of elevation gain. One of the most magical experiences you can try during a holiday in Rhodes is to admire the sunset from above and this excursion aims to make it happen. Starting from the village of Salakos, you go along an ancient mule track that leads to a garden that once belonged to De Vecchi who had a villa built in Profitis Ilias, today in a complete state of "abandonment". Passing through the garden, continue towards the two Tyrolean-style hotels and continue towards the mountain peak. From here the view that is proposed to you is truly breathtaking. Descending from the mountain, you pass the majestic villa and its chapel and return to Salakos. The whole route is immersed in a dense forest of cypresses and Aleppo pines which offer shade and shelter from the sun on the hottest days.
