Forest Environments’ include:
A remote forest station hemmed in on
all sides by sheer,
A walk around the Moufflon reserve
at Stavros tis Psokas, where
Cyprus’ famous wild sheep can be viewed and photographed
(zoom lenses required); excellent for children!
The fantastic Cedar Valley, lone
refuge of the endemic Cyprus
Cedar with trees exceeding 40m in height!

Here the steep, jagged Troodos coastline forms the backdrop
for an unforgettable ride along the peaceful ‘Green Line’,
where UN forces patrol the buffer-zone between occupied and
non-occupied lands. We stop at several view points to examine
this spectacular landscape en route to Ayios Raphael Church,
a major religious monument for the Greek Orthodox community.
There is time to enjoy a short swim by the sea before
