Day trip “Olives and Ouzo”

Duration including stops:  appr. 5 hours (plus transfer from your accommodation)

The trip: We pick you up at your accommodation and take you to the Barbayannis Ouzo Museum in Plomari. Here they produce one of the best ouzos of Lesvos – some experts say of all Greece. We learn from the owner about the production of ouzo and have the chance to compare the traditional and modern process of ouzo production. If you like, you have the opportunity to taste a variety of different ouzo qualities and styles.

We continue on the "street of the oil" through olive groves with amazing ancient trees to the small village of Pappados beside the Gulf of Gera. Here we visit the famous Museum of Olive Oil "Vrana".  An experienced olive farmer explains the entire process of production of excellent olive oil. After we have seen the museum we take you to an olive farm, where a local expert informs us about harvesting and handling of the olives. Here we can try the gorgeous taste of Lesvos olive oil.

After all this information, we are definitely ready for a meal and a drink. We take you now to a little traditional taverna, where we enjoy a tasty Greek meal in the "meze style" (little plates of selected Greek specialities). Relax and enjoy these small culinary delights! They taste typically Greek - fresh and delicious.

After this interesting and delightful day, we take you back to your accommodation.

Day trip “Time travel on Lesvos”

Duration including stops:  appr. 5 hours (plus transfer from your accommodation)

The trip: We pick you up at your accommodation and take you back in time to a 350-year-old water mill at Mylelia. This unique mill is extensively restored and fully functional. An expert explains the mechanics of the watermill. We see how the flour is milled and can experience the traditional process of baking bread. We also learn how the delicious local pasta is produced there. We have the chance to taste some delightful local products.

Our time travel takes us from here to a small olive press in which we find out about the traditional extraction of olive oil. Of course, here we also have the opportunity to taste the delicious olive oil.

Next we bring you to a secluded place that even some of the locals don’t know about. There is a tiny waterfront taverna where we enjoy a tasty ‘meze’ of greek delicacies.

After the delightful meal our time travel takes us to the "Museum of Trash" - a special kind of museum. Here you can see an exhibition of art and cultural objects from the last two centuries, depicting the life and working day of the people living on Lesvos. All the items you see here were found in the rubbish, thrown out when they were no longer needed- which explains the name of the museum.

After this unusual and interesting day, we take you back to your accommodation.

Start time and pick-up from your accommodation on arrangement.

Price for the day trip: for 5 people or more 65 € per person (pick-up from and return to your accommodation, transfer to Mylelia incl. guided tour and tasting, meze, transfer to the museum of trash incl. entrance fee).
