In summer, the visitors of Butterfly Valley can marvel at colourful clusters of butterflies. Thousands of them arrive at the valley at the end of May, attracted by the high humidity and aromatic sweetgum trees, to reproduce and lay eggs. By the end of August the mating season is over and in September most females are already gone.

Home to this amazing natural phenomenon, Butterfly Valley is the only natural forest of Oriental Sweetgum trees in Europe, and a resting point for the Jersey tiger, a nocturnal moth. It's a great place to enjoy nature and learn about the butterfly life cycle.
