DAY 1: scandi hike along the natural mountain route, excursions, walks in mountain villages, overnight in a hotel high in the mountains
The conquest of mountain peaks gives an incredible feeling of flight and freedom. Our path today lies from the dense green forests of the foothills to the rocky peaks of the Troodos Mountains. Here, with every turn, horizons expand, more and more Cyprus opens up in all its splendor. At the top at our feet are the villages lost in the mountains, and the age-old pines, in the shade of which we began our ascent, seem like a carpet at the foot of the mountains.
Do you want the summer not to end ?! We offer to extend it with us on a trip around Cyprus. Mountains, relict plants, exotic fruits combined with azure beaches will charge you positively before the long winter.
The main and largest airport in Cyprus in the city of Larnaca. From here, a hike around the sunny island begins. From Larnaca we move to the picturesque mountain village of Kakopetria. It is a beautiful, authentic village with cobblestone streets and toy houses. The name of the village is shrouded in amazing stories and legends that we will certainly tell you. The deepest river in Cyprus flows through the village, on the bank of which we will stop with tents.
Today we begin our ascent along an amazingly picturesque trail to the main Troodos mountain range. The trail will slowly traverse the mountain slope, taking you higher and higher. All the way we will be accompanied by a mountain river, luring us with its coolness. After 12 km, we will go to the Troodos tourist camp.
The morning begins with an invigorating warm-up and a delicious breakfast. We collect backpacks and continue our hike in Cyprus. A scenic mountain path leads to the low but beautiful Caledonia Waterfall (13 m). We will stop at this wonderful place to relax and have a snack. Having recovered our strength cheerfully and cheerfully we will reach the “picnic-site”. This is how they call spacious areas with tables and places for tents in Cyprus. A very comfortable place for the rest of hikers.
Today the Cyprus trekking route follows the medieval path of copper miners in the mountains. Many roads leading to the mines were laid in the mountains during the colonization of Cyprus by Venice. Venetian arched bridges were built across mountain rivers. This path has long lost its practical use, but the bridges have survived and perfectly fit into the local landscape, attracting tourists from all over the world. There are 13 Venetian bridges on the island. We will visit the best preserved ones: Chelefos and Elia.
We continue to explore mountainous Cyprus, discovering new places to admire. The route passes through another masterpiece of Venetian architecture - the Rudia Bridge. Beautifully built and built for centuries, the bridge connects the two banks of the mountain river. Linger here for photo shoots and lunch. The next point of the trip to Cyprus will be an abandoned mountain village, long abandoned by the locals (Turks) due to the 1974 Cyprus conflict. Now there are only walls of houses, obeying the power of nature, and rich orchards.
In the morning, having overcome a short distance, we go out to the settlement, from where we will take a bus to Paphos, where we will replenish food supplies. Then we go to the village of Latchi. Not far from it are the famous Baths of Aphrodite, where the goddess took baths before meeting her beloved Adonis. We will spend the night at a camping by the sea, spending the rest of the day swimming and relaxing. In the evening we will see a stunning Mediterranean sunset.
This day we will devote to rest at sea and hike along the coast of the Akamas peninsula. Rocky shores, azure waters and exotic plants - these views will not leave anyone indifferent. Certainly the goddess Aphrodite, who chose Cyprus as a holiday destination, had good taste. We will look into every cove, swim in the Blue Lagoon. Let's try the magic water from the source "Fountain of Amorosa", which in Greek means "Fountain of Love". According to legend, everyone who drank water from this source will certainly fall in love. It was here, according to legend, that the goddess Aphrodite fell in love with Adonis.
After a short walk, we leave for the settlement. We take a bus that will take us to Paphos. From where there is regular transport to Larnaca. A return plane ticket can be bought both from Larnaca and from Paphos. If you want to extend your holiday in Cyprus after the hike, you will not be disappointed. The island is rich in attractions and delightful sea bays with pristine beaches that meet European standards.
Cyprus - this name alone gives off warmth, gentle sea breeze and the aroma of sweet southern fruits. I remember the myths of ancient Greece and their heroes. And that's right, because according to legend, Cyprus is the birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. This island attracts romantics, adventure lovers and just those who want summer right now, and it is here almost all year round.
This route is thought out according to the principle "forward for romance". We will swim and relax a lot, climb the mountains, admire how the sun sinks into the sea at sunset. Walking with or without backpacks, so this hike will also overcome yourself.
If these words are in tune with you, then let's go on the trail together - where the waterfalls rustle, where the grass sways in the wind, and at night the stars cover you with a cozy cap of eternity!
Participation with children from 10 years old is possible, if they are ready to walk a lot.
