You will travel through Drouseia, Stavros Tis Psokas, Kato Akourdaleia and 4 other destinations in Cyprus. The Troodos Mountains And Akamas - 8 Days is a trip which includes accommodation, meals and others.

Discover the Troodos Mountains and Akamas Peninsula of Cyprus on foot. Cyprus is an island of natural beauty in a region with an abundance of ancient and modern civilisations and cultures. Its mineral wealth was well known in ancient times: the island gave its name to the element copper (Cu). Away from the cosmopolitan towns and beach resorts you will find large areas of natural, unspoilt countryside. Rugged, conifer-clad mountains, woodland, orchards and vineyards are interspersed with tranquil, timeless villages. The people extend a warm and friendly welcome and their hospitality will add greatly to the enjoyment of your tour. At lower altitude in mid to late March Cyprus comes into bloom with a profusion of exquisite, wild flowers. This is gradually followed by the mountainous areas. The island’s position on one of the major migratory routes means that it becomes a stopover for many species of birds during their migrations, particularly in April and September / October. The Troodos Mountains cover much of the southern and western part of the country and this walk takes you from walking in the high mountains down to the coast, starting from an altitude of about 1100m. The walk takes you through a time worn landscape, with painted churches and Kykko Monastery, the largest monastery in Cyprus, dating all the way back to Byzantine days. The walk continues down to the Pafos area in the western part of the island.

“We organized a private trip and the GR5 from Briancon to Nice is harder than Tour du Mont Blanc in many respects. More remote, rougher tracks, steeper descents but the views and remoteness of it were awesome. A few options exist for taxi or bus rides to skip road sections or if just plain tired. A head for heights and narrow tracks on steep slopes preferable. Ground support, accommodation and provided meals were all excellent although one refuge in the middle of nowhere is just a mattress on floor. All part of the experience though. Highly recommended if you want a trek away from mainstream tourism.”
