Cyprus in Spring

Join us in Cyprus for an eight-day walking holiday next to the beautiful warm blue Mediterranean Sea on the north-western coast of Cyprus. The Akamas is a beautiful region of hills, valleys and rocky shores, which are ideal for walking with rich and varied flora and diverse wildlife habitats.

The area is well known for the ancient Greek myths such as that of the Goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite who bathed in a cool pool before her marriage to Adonis at the Baths of Aphrodite. Spring is good time for walking as in the summer it is far too hot to discover the wonders and beauty of this island.right

You will be staying at the Aphrodite Beach Hotel a three star hotel situated on the beautiful beach near the Akamas forest next to the Mediterranean sea.

The price is based on dinner, bed & breakfast, picnic lunch and all transportation to and from walks and to and from the airport.
