It is a walking tour that takes 11 days taking you through Droushia, Pedoulas, Chrysochou Bay and 6 other destinations in Cyprus. The Troodos Mountains And Akamas - 11 Days is a self-guided private tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

An extended version of our walk in the Troodos Mountains and Akamas of Cyprus. 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 and includes walking on to the Akamas Peninsula, an important nature reserve.

Review for another Sherpa Expeditions tour
“Sherpa were easy to deal with from my initial inquiry through to departure. Very friendly and professional. All accommodation was of an excellent standard. All local staff were friendly and helpful. Although maps not needed they were difficult to read. The trip notes were excellent with useful alternative information. Well thought out.”

Review for another Sherpa Expeditions tour
“The accommodation and breakfasts were good at all locations. The evening meals at the Pension Selini in Vitsa was outstanding and that provided at Voula's Restaurant in Tsepelovo was the poorest but adequate. Buying phone cards are unnecessary as there were a few phone boxes along the route and mobile phone coverage was very good. The service of the Ground Handler was excellent. They were in daily contact to update on weather conditions and provide other information on that days hike.”
