The Troodos Mountains offer welcome respite to anyone suffering from an overdose of Mediterranean beach life.

Stretching across Western Cyprus and rising to a height of nearly 2000m, they take you back in time to an older and wiser Cyprus; a world away from the bustle of the coast.

Also included in this day is the famous Kykkos Monastery, one of the richest monasteries in Cyprus. It is dedicated to Our Lady, whose icon is so holy, legend has it that anyone who attempts to gaze at it will be instantly blinded. It was originally founded by the Byzantines in 1092 and is renowned for its wealth of frescoes, colourful mosaics, gold icons and glittering ornamentation.

No visit to Cyprus would be complete without seeing this world renowned monastery & mountain range.

Please note we offer two different itineraries depending on your starting point (East/West Cyprus) For an extended itinerary, please check out the tabs below.
