Our most popular trek, which runs once per week

regardless of the season, features an adventure through one of Cyprus’ most impressive natural wonders: the giant limestone canyon known as ‘Avagas’. This slippery and challenging journey begins at the foot of an isolated goat-path and ends at the top of a 300m cliff deep inside the Peyia Forest. During the day you will be subjected to the following dazzling experiences:

 

Trekking through a long water-carved limestone tunnel;

 

Clambering over large boulders and scree slopes;

 

Exploring small, pristine waterfalls;

 

Bird-watching/goat-watching within a natural

amphitheatre;

 

Sitting astride spacious rock ledges with scenic overviews of coast and valley floor.

 The GORGE TREK 

Available from:  Paphos/Polis, Limassol 

Ayia Napa/Protaras+Larnaca

              

This trek involves 3 to 4 hours of hiking with many rest stops. It is especially directed at those who enjoy geology, botany, ornithology or anyone wishing to combine exploration of virgin wilderness with the loss of a few calories. This is an ‘intermediate’ level trek. That means terrain is generally slightly to moderately sloping, but a substantial portion involves walking over slippery boulders, and there is one steep uphill section over difficult terrain – about 20 minutes of challenging walking for the average person. Except during summer months, conditions are often muddy. Any reasonably healthy person with good shoes (trainers or better – no sandals please!) and a sense of adventure can complete this trek. A rather ethnic yet very memorable lunch is included along with drinking water throughout the day. Live long and trek….

 

Note: Full-day Treks include a fantastic post-hike lunch, which tends to be on the late side. Half-day Treks take place in the afternoon only and do not include lunch.

 

Warning: This trek should be avoided by those with heart/respiratory conditions, problems of balance, fear of heights and/or a low tolerance for pain and physical hardship.

 

Special interests: Bird-watching, botany, geology,

unbulldozed landscape, goat manure, clean air,

photography.
