Lesvos (3rd ed)
Car Tours and Walks
Brian Anderson and Eileen Anderson

4" x 8.25" • 136 pages • full-color
ISBN 9781856914390 • paperback • $17.99

Refreshingly free of high-rise hotels and beach-orientated tourism, Lesvos—the third largest island in Greece—is seizing an opportunity to rediscover itself through ecotourism in its totally unspoiled countryside. The island is a very popular destination for walkers, birders and horticulturalists, but no other books cater for them.

Fascinating sites, often unprotected, allow you to do your own interpretation. Follow the authors' footsteps into villages still steeped in an old way of life and into a countryside as beautiful as any in the Mediterranean. The car tours, too, show off the very best the island has to offer and will take you to some secret places they have discovered.

The island is a treasure house of very early ancient remains dating from the 7th century BC and boasts one of the finest natural monuments in Europe, the Petrified Forest, created 20 million years ago. Cloaked with forests of chestnut and oak, Lesvos becomes a riot of flowers in the spring and is renowned for its wild orchids (as many as 65 species) and with its own special endemic, Ophrys lesbis.

The island's hills and mountains are riddled with little known ancient trails and cobbled donkey paths, many of which form the walks featured in this new edition.

4 car tours (with accompanying touring maps), 51 long and short walks (each with 1:50,000 topo map), 25 picnic suggestions. Plan of Mytilene. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher’s website, maintained daily.
