Take a 4x4 journey to the vast pine forests of the Central Troodos Mountains. This is Cyprus’ highest landscape, where jagged volcanic peaks reach elevations ranging between 1500m and 1900m. Of course, it takes a while to gain those heights, but we achieve this in a relaxed manner by using a combination of small asphalt roads and well-maintained dirt tracks to provide a unique off-the-beaten-track transition from sea level to mountainous interior. Along the way, we enjoy several stops in villages and at spectacular viewpoints, and there is ample opportunity to get out of the vehicle for short strolls amongst the vineyards and pines that characterise these ‘classique’ Troodos environments. Although, by necessity, we do pass through pockets of mass-tourism and modern development, our itinerary steers you away from the mundane and highlights the little-known cultural and natural wonders that lie tucked away within the forests and wine lands of Cyprus’ higher landscapes. Here’s what is on offer:
