The grand area of the Troodos Mountains, with its volcanic peaks and pine forests, has a wealth of beauty and culture to explore. For this reason, we have designed an exclusive itinerary including all the most spectacular sites ensuring you experience all aspects of this magnificent region in one, action-packed, sightseeing excursion.
Step aboard our air-conditioned bus for a magic journey through these unforgettable destinations:
Lefkara Village: Positioned right on the edge of the Eastern Troodos, this village features narrow streets, newly restored stone architecture, small coffee shops and great shopping opportunities for traditional handicrafts such as silver jewellery and the world famous ‘Lefkaritika’ (hand-embroidered lace).
Passing alongside numerous small villages, our journey continues Northwards through the outskirts of Lefkosia, the divided capital of Cyprus, and up into the elevated foothills of the Troodos Mountains. We climb above the clouds for fantastic views over Morphou Bay, the Kormakiti Peninsula, the Mesoria Plane and the Kyrenia Mountains.
The world-renowned Kykkos Monastery is not only the richest (with it’s Golden Mosaics, Ancient Icons, various Religious Relics), but also the largest and most prestigious active Monastery in Cyprus.
Don’t miss the famous icon of Panayia Eleousa (Most Merciful Virgin Mary), painted by St Luke and believed to “Produce miracles.”- A traditional village winery for free wine tasting and an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the fascinating winemaking process. On this tour, you will see and experience more of Cyprus in one day than many average tourists do in a week!
