On the east coast of Gera Bay, 6.5 km west of Mytilene, there is the thermal spring "Therma" of Gera Bay, which consists our next visit. Several services are available, such as jacuzzi, swimming pools, spa and we will have the time to take advantage of them since we plan to stay there for around two hours. Bring your bathing suits along! For more information about the offered services you may visit “Therma” website:

After our relaxing time in Thermal spa we will visit the Museum of Industrial Olive-Oil Production of Lesvos. The museum is housed in the old communal olive press of Aghia Paraskevi of Lesvos Island. At the Museum, we will have the chance to become familiar with the work cycle relating to the production of olive oil and we will taste some of the finest olive-oils of Lesvos.

Last stop of our daily trip is Molyvos (Mithimna). The village of Molyvos is located on the north western tip of Lesvos Island. Molyvos is believed to be one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. Its traditional settlement, organised social life and hospitable residents will win your heart from the very first.


Molyvos, Lesvos Island


Archeological finds show that this village has been inhabited since the Bronze Age and was a very important city in antiquity. All the houses are constructed of stone or wood, and densely situated amid a network of kalderimia. The overall picture of the village, with its courtyards and balconies, is not only uniquely beautiful but also a most interesting example of town planning, well-deserving of its protected status.

There you will have the chance to walk around the famous market, taste traditional local dishes and enjoy some beautiful drinks by the sea.

Late at night we will return back to Heliotrope Hotel.
