Scheduled Summer 2017 Walks
Cyprus Walking Expeditions – summer 2017
This is a series of walks that we are organising during summer 2017. The walks are of medium length and at locations that are cooler, making the experience pleasant for the explorer. The trips focus on natural beauty combined where possible with elements of Cyprus rich cultural heritage :
1) Top of Troodos 20 km walk (2 independent parts) (Artemis walk to Troodos Square via Atalante trail + Troodos Square via Persephone and Caledonia Waterfalls to Psilon Dendro)
2) Cedar Valley and Kykkos walk (6 km + 5 km)
3) Shaded Platy Valley + Kelephos medieval Venetian Bridge (10 km)
4) Vouni Panagias (circular - 8 km) and Intro to Xeros Potamos Valley (Panagia tou Sinti monastery) (1 km)
5) Short Akamas Panorama walk (Neo Chorio to Aphrodite’s Baths cave) 13 km
Because of the composition of the walks, (except for Walk no 5 where there is no possibility of doing part of the walk), one has the option to do only part of the walk (eg for Walk 1 to do just 10 km, for 2 to do the six or five km).
