The wonderful orchids of Greece!

Every spring and summer, the Greek countryside is filled with their beautiful designs and colors, and on every excursion to Olympus, Zagorohoria, Meteora, Grevena and elsewhere we find many species, among them some that are rare.

Orchids are particularly beautiful, elegant and "smart" plants that can be found scattered in almost every ecosystem. Every spring and summer, the Greek countryside is filled with their beautiful designs and colors, and on every excursion to Olympus, Zagori, Meteora, Grevena and elsewhere we find many species, among them some that are rare.

The total number of orchid species on the planet is estimated at around 25,000.
