Olive Oil Tour from Nafplio

Price 60.00

Olive oil is the basis of the Mediterranean food chain, which has been proved to be a model of a healthy diet and longevity. Since ancient times, the Greeks have been involved in the cultivation of olives and the production of olive oil. 

The optimal time to perform this unique trip is the harvest season, from mid-October to mid-January every year, as we have the opportunity to collect the fruits of a tree and to turn them into pure olive oil; furthermore to produce our own edible olives in order to take them with us. 

Argolis is a place rich in olive trees and olive oil production. On this half-day journey of olive, we learn all the secrets of this holy tree, from prehistory until today, and we taste fresh olive oil and various olive derivatives accompanied by delicious Greek dishes.

We pick you up from our meeting point and we head to Epidauria land and a picturesque village, rich in olive oil production. Half hour later, passing through endless olive groves, we arrive at a modern mill, where we wander to the self-owned groves and we get acquainted with all the secrets of the olive tree.

The next stop is the interior of the mill, where the fruits are transferred into the mill to become olive oil. We learn all about the stages of processing the olive fruits into pure olive oil and our experience ends by tasting unique varieties of products, like pure olive oil on fresh bread, fruits of olive and Greek feta cheese served with extra virgin olive oil, olive pâté, sweets and traditional olive liqueur. 

Finally, filled with memories and knowledge, we return to our departure point.
