The development of Olive Tourism in Greece


Olive oil is known for its high content of healthy monounsaturated fats, as well as its antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. These health benefits, combined with the unique flavor of Greek olive oil, make it an appealing product for tourists and locals alike. The development of olive tourism in Greece has been a recent phenomenon, with the first olive groves being opened to visitors in 2004. Since then, the industry has grown rapidly, with over 30 olive groves now offering tours and tastings to tourists.


Greece is the perfect place to develop this type of tourism due to its long history with olives and olive oil. Olive trees have been cultivated on the Greek mainland for over 3,000 years, and olive oil was an important commodity in ancient Greek society. Today, Greece is one of the world’s leading producers of olive oil, so there is no shortage of opportunities for visitors to learn about and experience this traditional industry.

We already offer a wide range of olive tourism experiences in Greece.


The results are many and varied. For one, our endeavor has created jobs in a country where unemployment is high. It has also brought in much-needed revenue to Greece’s struggling economy. Additionally, it has helped to preserve Greece’s rich cultural heritage and to promote healthy lifestyles. Finally, olive tourism has contributed to the development of sustainable agricultural practices in Greece.
