Walking Holidays in Cyprus
Walking in Cyprus
Despite its petite size, the island of Cyprus has a lot to offer to every passionate walker. From the coastal paths of the south and west, through the inland plains, foothills and forests up to the higher reaches of Macheiras, Madhari Ridge and Troodos – its diverse landscape is waiting to be explored and discovered.
Cyprus has a reputation for a lazy holiday destination, where you can enjoy the sun, sea and sand. But the island has much more to offer! The magnificent Cyprus pine forest covers approximately 1/3 of the western side of the island. The Forestry Department has created a number of trails within the state forests in various parts of the island, from Cape Greko in the southeast to Akamas peninsula in the west. These have been carefully designed to cover areas of rich natural vegetation and cultural interest. Although walking in Cyprus can be enjoyed throughout the year, it’s not recommended to plan your walking holiday in the Summer, since the temperatures reach 40 degrees C.
