With more than 11 million olive trees, Lesvos offers the most unique experience in
autumn, during the olive harvest season. Visit the local cooperatives and watch how
the raw material of olives is converted into the most golden olive oil. A true gift of
nature to Lesvos. And you mustn’t forget to buy some fresh bread and local oregano to
dip into the warm olive oil as it flows out of the press! The purest of tastes, straight
from the earth. It’s the “real” gold!
Autumn is the season when all colours are Lesvos. Silver olive trees, brown chestnuts, golden oak trees, burgundy roofs, azul blue clear waters, orange and pink skies with the best well-kept secret, the sunsets of Lesvos. Autumn is the season to taste dried figs stuffed with walnuts, warm kainari, local grilled mushrooms and fresh goat’s cheese. Autumn is the time to enjoy the best walking, especially after the rainy season begins and the waterfalls of the island come to life. Autumn is the time to come watch or even participate in national and world known bicycle races, to visit the monasteries, museums, and sites. Or to simply roam the small cobble stoned streets and admire the architecture and history. To feel that special energy this island has and reflects on each one of us.
