Walking holidays in Cyprus are increasingly popular for holidaymakers who wish to get away from the more conventional holiday pursuits of sun, sea and sand.
The climate in Cyprus makes walking a pleasure with the island's natural beauty and magnificent scenery providing unrivalled trails and tours. Whether you prefer a short stroll or an exhilarating hike, there are a variety of options.
The striking views of the Troodos mountains and the rugged beauty of the Akamas peninsula are the most popular areas for the walking enthusiast. The mountain trails, many of them clearly marked by the Cyprus Tourism Organization, introduce visitors to the flora and fauna of the island, and take them through pine forests, past natural springs and into picturesque villages with traditional stone houses and historic churches.
For hikers who wish to stroll around the historic centers of the main towns, there are a wide variety of guided and self-guided tours to choose from.
