Here’s a chance to travel well off-the-beaten-track to explore the fantastic villages, unique cultural monuments and virgin landscapes of the Eastern Troodos mountains, a region not often visited by average tourists. Using a combination of small asphalt roads and narrow (yet well-maintained) dirt tracks, we go beyond the bounds of normal coach tours in order to bring you through river valleys and semi-forested environments, where the ‘real Cyprus’ and the magic of agro-tourism lie waiting. This is no mere joy ride into the mountains, but a unique nature/culture encounter that is both fun and informative: Emphasis is given to exploring ‘real’ Cypriot places, meeting ‘real’ Cypriot people and having ‘real’ Cypriot experiences. And we spend as much time outside the vehicle as possible! What can you expect? Spontaneity will rule the day, but here are some specifics:


4x4 transport from hotel to river valley/mountain

hinterlands in our Land Rover Defenders;


Visits to at least three off-the-beaten-track traditional villages;


Meet the Mukhtaris (Mayor) for a mini-walking tour of his village;


Mingle with baby goats and lambs and wander through orange groves to pick your own snack from the tree (November to April);
