    Join us for one of our most popular trips and discover the beauty of Troodos Mountain area and enjoy scenic mountain views as well as the divided capital city of Nicosia.

    Our first stop is Nicosia where free time will be given for a stroll in the Old Town within the Venetian walls  in the city Center.  Walk up to the “Green Line” which divides the city in two the Turkish invasion in 1974.

    We then drive towards Troodos Mountains and stop at Kakopetria, a well-preserved village with traditional picturesque houses dating back to the 14th century AD. In Kakopetria you will get the chance to walk around the quaint little village known for its running waters and mini waterfall.

    Continue towards the peak of  Troodos Mountains, where the forest stretches as far as the eye can see.  We stop at Troodos Square, where free time will be given for lunch (optional extra/payable locally).  Situated right in the hear of the island, this location offers some of the most breath-taking views in Cyprus.

    Following lunch you will experience the highlight of the excursion, the traditional village of Omodos. The village is built around the Holy Cross monastery, one of the oldest and sacred monasteries in Cyprus. Omodos is a famous wine producing village with many small shops which can be visited during your free time to taste and buy some of the local Cypriot wine and other handmade products.

    NOTE: Visitors must dress appropriately when visiting religious places. No shorts, tank tops for both men and women.  (trousers under the knee are acceptable and well short sleeve tops).  Shoulders should be covered.
