First time we were here it was 46C. There are only A few trees so it was really too hot. The bar was our saviour. Great view too. Two years later we went again. I love it there. Nice walk

Unfortunately, this park was closed last summer due to financial crisis. It was very interesting, but required at least three hours. Anyone interested in the Petrified Forest should visit the museum in Sigri that is outstanding!

This is my second visit to the island, which is where my family is from. I finally managed to get to visit the Petrified Forest today and decided to ignore some of the current reviews here saying the park was closed. Traveling there by car...More

We travelled from Anaxos to Sigri on a scooter. The most amazing scenery en route and we stumbled upon this attraction just outside of sigri. Well worth a visit to wander in the footsteps of dinosaurs through the petrified trees. A humbling experience of time.

If you are in Lesvos island you have to visit it. It's a little far away but worth a visit., you will return to the past. Also visit the natural history museum , it's amazing!

Highly recommend a visit to this amazing place, the volcanic lava has left some great pieces of art. Great day trip to Sigri or Eressos to enjoy the beach & some nice food.

Petrified forest, is actually a four different forests with approximately 25hectares each. The one which is two kilometers before the museum is closed, because belongs to another ministry. So, don't bother try, go straight to the museum where the other forests begun. The museum offers...More

Very disappointed. Access road closed. No warning until we actually arrived at the road. Unable to comment but think signs should have been up to warn tourists. We found other attractions closed without warning too. I.e. Molotov (unsure of spelling) castle. Sigri castle to name...More

The petrified forest is closed until further notice...BUT you can still go to the Natural History Museum near Sigri to see the petrified trees. It is spectacular as they seem like marble with different colorations. You can also see other minerals and rocks and the...More
