In recent years, the global identity of a traveler has evolved from being a mere tourist to an Explorer of History, Art and Nature. The “Tourism Association of Molyvos”, under the brand Lesvos the Other Aegean, has undertaken precisely the responsibility: to improve the existing tourism structures of Molyvos and of its surrounding region and to highlight the environmental and cultural resources of the entire island of Lesvos. In this way, we aim to offer our visitors unforgettable holidays and unique experiences, in Lesvos island.
Lesvos is for travelers who want to explore and participate in local life, rather than merely enjoying a mass tourist destination. Obviously, it is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea that generously offers sun and sea.
Most of all Lesvos is an alternative destination, full of authentic experiences, a place where you can: rest, relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the area and experience the calm associated with the sun setting over the Aegean; hike, climb, or bike through the lush pine forests and acres upon acres of olive groves; swim, sail, fish or scuba dive with the locals in the blue waters of the Aegean; meditate, release the stress and get in touch with the spiritual energy of the island; attend folk festivals celebrating the island’s heritage; visit museums and monuments and connect with the long Greek history and deep culture of the island, which dates back over three thousand years; explore the Petrified forest and its Parks and learn about the geohistorical evolution of the Aegean; visit ouzo distilleries, harvest olives with the locals, and savor the aroma of Greek coffee brewed over cinders in a “kafeneio” (traditional coffee house) listening to stories of the island’s past and present woven by village elders.
Year after year, many of our guests, from all over the world, visit Lesvos, to experience again the authenticity and explosion of senses, that Lesvos has to offer.
We hope to see you among them.
Welcome to LESVOS THE OTHER AEGEAN.
