You can choose to spend as little as half a day to several weeks picking olives. On an olive picking holiday you will be working and staying in beautiful surroundings (olive groves are often full of wild flowers and butterflies), you will receive a warm welcome from owners keen to share with you their way of life and gain the satisfaction of helping to gather in the harvest. Even better you will discover that nothing tastes nicer than fresh extra virgin olive oil produced from the olives that you have helped to hand pick from the tree and will have watched being pressed in the local mill.
If olive picking isn't for you Trigilidas travel also brings you a hand picked range of other olive related experiences ... walking and cycling tours through olive groves, books written by people living the dream, and museums to visit, information on olive cultivation including growing, harvesting and production methods, find out where to buy hundred year old olive trees, extra virgin olive oil, olive oil beauty products ... in fact everything a lover of olives and olive oil could possibly want.
If you only have time for a short break....there are half day, full day and weekend options available and include an olive oil dinner in Messinia, an olive farm in Mani or Kalamata , where you will be collected from your hotel or cruise ship ...
Alternatively find out how you can adopt an olive tree and soon you'll be enjoying your very own fabulous extra virgin olive oil ... this makes a great and unusual present choice at a very affordable price. Maybe you will even decide to visit your tree.
Come and experience the olive harvest for yourself !!
