Top Cyprus Walking Trip (Troodos - Artemis trail and opt Caledonia Waterfalls)

The Trip:It is primarily a walking trip that may be a combination between Artemis and Caledonia Waterfalls trail, depending on travellers’ preferences and time availability.Duration : Six, Eight or Ten hours, depending on package selectionPickup time : To be agreed with the travellers. Usually it is between 08:30 and 09:30.Pickup location : At an agreed place (eg hotel, port, etc) usually in Limassol or Nicosia. It can be at other cities or resorts (eg Paphos, Larnaca, Pissouri, even Protaras or Agia Napa). From Agia Napa or Protaras the trip would make sense if the duration is 8 or 10 hours, as, due to the significant distance, there is considerable time to be spent in the car.Itinerary : Initially we do the walk (s). If we have time we visit other attractions (natural and/or cultural). Once we complete the walk(s) we return to the pickup location stopping at attractions subject to time availability. The overall itinerary may differ depending on the pick up location. From Nicosia we may visit for example Kakopetria and or Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis Unesco World Heritage painted church. From Limassol we may visit Omodos village and/or Kelephos medieval Venetian bridge, etc. The trip may be customised to include a meal at a traditional village restaurant, winetasting, etc.The Walks:Artemis Nature Trail (8 km / 5 mi, flat and easy) is the highest elevation trail in Cyprus (on mount Olympus) with unique flora on the island. When the weather is clear it offers excellent vistas to many parts of Cyprus.Caledonia Waterfalls Trail (linear, three km / two miles long and steep) at an elevation of down to 1,000 m offers quite a different environment (eg plane trees, strawberry trees, violas, brambles, bracken, trout if walkers are lucky, etc). It runs in a lush valley crossing the stream a few times and passes by Caledonia Falls.The combination of the two trails offers a rich experience over a considerably elevation range in Cyprus. There are also other walks we could do in the area instead, for example Persephone which is of a similar length like Caledonia Waterfalls trail but quite flat. Transportation :We usually use a Citroen C8 MPV car.What’s included:Guiding in the walk and the trip in general. What’s excluded :Food, drinks, entry fee at archaeological sites if any, etc.

Lefkara lace, Unesco Choirokoitia and Larnaca birdwatching Tour

The Trip:It is primarily an exploration trip from Agia Napa (Ayia Napa) of the stone-built village of Pano Lefkara (a production center of the famed lace) and of Unesco World Heritage Choirokoitia neolithic site.  We normally also do birdwatching at one of three wetlands near Larnaca (or Larnaka)  (in summer one dries out and water is almost gone in another so we suggest to skip this part of trip in July or August). Depending on travellers’ preferences and time availability, there may be possibilities to do a walk by Lefkara manmade lake, visit other attractions on the way (eg Panagia Angeloktisti church in Kiti village or Ayia Thekla chapel)  (depending on pickup location) and/or have a meal at a village restaurant.Duration : Six, Eight or Ten hours, depending on package selectionPickup time : To be agreed with the travellers. Usually it is between 08:30 and 09:30.Pickup location : At an agreed place (eg hotel, port, etc) usually in Larnaca, Nicosia or Limassol (and even in Agia Napa, Protaras, Paphos). Naturally due to the significant distance, there is considerable time to be spent in the car when the trip starts in Agia Napa, Protaras or Paphos.Itinerary : Pano Lefkara stone-built (Lefkara lace producing) village and  Unesco World Heritage Choirokoitia Neolithic settlement are the two basic attractions of this trip. Birdwatching at one of the wetlands near Larnaca is also highly recommended.Visiting Unesco World Heritage Choirokoitia neolithic site is highly recommended, especially because its convenient geographic location, allows combos with exploration of other worthy attractions nearby. Stone-built Pano Lefkara acquired considerable wealth in the past century through production and trade of the famed Lefkaritika lace. As per local tradition, Leonardo da Vinci visited the village, loved and bought Lefkaritika lace. Besides meandering through the maze of the village, the village's central church is worth a visit ( according to local tradition it houses a piece from the Holly Cross).  For those into birdwatching, we highly recommend to include a visit to one of three wetlands near Larnaca, as they host thousands of birds and tens of bird species (especially during the annual migration in spring but also in autumn). Thousands of flamingos find refuge during the cold months of the year here. The trip is customisable.A Possible Walk:Besides meandering inside Pano Lefkara village, and subject to time availability, travellers could do a linear walk on the dirt road around Lefkara manmade lake (one of the most beautiful manmade wetlands in Cyprus, having steep hills around it). Transportation :We usually use a Citroen C8 MPV car.What’s included:Guiding the trip in general and possibly a walk.What’s excluded :Food, drinks, entry fee at archaeological sites, etc.

Old Kakopetria and UNESCO Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis with Optional Troodos Walk

The Trip:It is primarily an exploration trip of the stone-built old quarter of Kakopetria village and of Unesco World Heritage Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis painted church.  Depending on travellers’ preferences and time availability, there may be possibilities to do a walk in Troodos (eg Artemis), have a meal at a village restaurant or visit other attractions on the way (depending on pickup location).Duration : Six, Eight or Ten hours, depending on package selectionPickup time : To be agreed with the travellers.

The overall itinerary may differ depending on the pick up location. From Nicosia, if there is time we may visit for example also Panagia tis Asinou Unesco World Heritage painted church. From Limassol we may visit Omodos village and/or Kelephos medieval Venetian bridge, etc. The trip is customisable.Possible Walks:Besides a short walk at the stream next to old Kakopetria, and subject to time availability, travellers could do Artemis circular trail or Persephone trail. For an itinerary from Limassol we could include instead Caledonia Waterfalls trail, the shorter Pano Platres - Myllomeris Waterfall trail, or even a short walk at Kelephos Medieval Venetian Bridge.  Transportation :We usually use a Citroen C8 MPV car.What’s included:Guiding the trip in general and possibly a walk.What’s excluded :Food, drinks, entry fee at archaeological sites if any, etc.
