One day Olive Harvesting in Halikarnasos
Including transfers from Bodrum Hotels
One day Olive Harvesting including transportation from Bodrum hotels round trip
Wake up early in the morning, meet at the olive orchards with others. Start by placing the nets under the trees. You will have the opportunity to collect 3 packs (40 kgs each) of olives before breakfast is ready. While you are picking olives, someone will prepare tea and coffee over a woodfire, along with a rich breakfast including a variety of olives, olive oil, tomatoes, and cheeses. After breakfast, the picking continues, with a friendly competition to see who collects the most olives! In the late afternoon, there will be snacks served by the fire. Some days it may be similar to English high tea, with cookies and cakes, or grilling sucuk (Turkish Sausages) or chicken wings over woodfire.
Once all the packs are on the back of the tractor, you will accompany the olives to the communal press, where it is always exciting to see the olive oil come out. You will then have the opportunity to sample the fresh olive oil — served with fresh bread and a glass of wine.
