The Greek island of Lesbos is a famous destination for birdwatchers and naturalists. In spring and autumn, the already impressive number of breeding birds swells with the arrival of countless migratory birds. The old trails and tracks between the villages invite for walks amidst picturesque woodlands, groves and meadows, with the blue Aegean never far away. On your way you’ll pass along swathes of orchids, anemones and tulips, while every now and then, a tortoise stoically crosses your path. All this is Lesbos – the island of birds, flowers, reptiles and other natural attractions. Add to this the many hours of sunshine, pretty villages and fine, locally grown food and wine, and you know why Lesbos is a dream destination for nature lovers.
