Walk around Kelephos Bridge near Omodos Village

5. Walk around Kelephos Bridge near Omodos Village

Start your tour by heading to the Krassohoria wine villages and stop at Omodos village. This is the usual meeting point (we can give travellers a free ride from Limassol, Larnaca or Nicosia). Great meeting point because it is close the the start of the walk, it is convenient and has various amenities including public restrooms. We drive to the expansive Paphos Forest for the walk. Usually we start walking from the downstream end of Play Valley. The length that we do will depend on travellers profile and preferece. Platy Valley is a serene place in Cyprus, characterised by a stream that has water all year round. We walk on a dirt road next to the stream on a linear route, returning on the same road. There is a plethora of local plant species, dominated by plane and alder trees. One can also see pines, bracken, storax, maple, even figs. In early autumn Cyclamen bloom here. As we walk maybe we will be fortunate to spot crabs walking on the road. If we are very lucky we may spot moufflon. Unfortunately we are likely to meet a few cars using this road. Depending on arrangements we either walk to or go by car to Kelephos' medieval Venetian bridge, which according to tradition is built on a camel trail. The trail was apparently used by camel caravans to transport mined material from the mines on the north side of the Troodos mountains to Paphos port. The local stream has water throughout the year. The setting is beautiful, with higher water flow during the rainy season and with more greenery in summer when the alders have their leaves and the bracken are full of life. We then drive to Omodos village, one of the largest villages of Krasochoria. For years it has been well-known for its vineyards and wine and is still today known for its prime produce. Omodos developed around the ancient monastery of the Holy Cross (connected to St. Helen’s Passage to Cyprus) and is a popular destination for visitors.

Troodos: Waterfall, Omodos, Medival Bridge & wine tasting

6. Troodos: Waterfall, Omodos, Medival Bridge & wine tasting

Omodos The picturesque, beautiful wine village of Omodos is located at 800 meters in the Troodos Mountains, in the Krasochoria region. It is not so far from Lemesos (Limassol) and is one of the most traditional and charming villages in Cyprus. It has existed since the Frankish era and is represented on old maps of Cyprus as 'Homodos' or 'Homoclos'. The name of the village goes back to the Greek word for street ('odos'). Omodos is famous for its wine, zivania pomace brandy, handmade and tightly woven lace, and aromatic arkatena (crispy rusks with yeast). Omodos is a very small village but has many interesting sights to offer. Close to each other are the cobbled village square, old and stone-built houses, local wineries, a medieval wine press (also called wine press) and the Monastery of Timios Stavros (Monastery of the Holy Cross) with ancient icons and impressive wood carvings. There is also a National Liberation Struggle Museum, a Crafts Preservation Center for handmade and tightly woven lace, and an Icon Museum. On September 14, one of the largest religious festivals in all of Cyprus takes place in Omodos in honor of the Holy Cross. During the three-day festival, vendors gather in the beautiful square in front of the monastery to offer their wares. Many other events also take place on this square during the summer months and at Easter. - Laneia The Village of Painters. Many visitors to Cyprus simply have no idea what a miracle lies behind this name! Painters, writers and people who value comfort and tranquility fall in love with this place. A lot of creative people who come to the island deliberately choose this village because they are fascinated by the beauty of the mountainous landscape surrounding the village and the narrow little streets. That is why Laneia is called the village of painters. In a village tavern you can treat yourself to tasty home-made dishes, learn a bit about local beekeeping, fruit growing (pears, plums, apricots and others), processing of walnuts and of course wine growing. Unsubstantiated sources say that after the death of vineyards in France, King Henry himself came to Laneia in search of healthy vine plantations. The villagers gave the king some vines, later planted on his native French soil to make champagne wines. Today Laneia is one of only ten villages in the region that produce the basis for Commandaria, the most famous Cypriot dessert wine, aged in oak barrels. Millomeris Waterfall Between the visits to the two villages, we will try to leave the stress of everyday life behind and visit one of the most beautiful natural places in Cyprus. This beautiful place is the Millomeris falls.The name of the waterfalls is derived from the combination of two words. Millos and Meros. Millos means wet in the Cypriot dialect and Meros means place, hence Millomeris denotes a wet place. The waterfall carries the waters of the Kryo Nero River, which also feeds the Caledonia Falls.

It was a great and easy way to explore Cyrus! Our tour guide was amazing and all of the food was delicious!! She took us to prominent cypriot locations and indulged us in its history. Her knowledge of the region only bolstered her credibility and our appreciation.

Highly recommend this day trip! The communication from the tour company, our guide Theodora and the selection of local food and wine stops were all excellent. I would do this again in one of the other regions on the island on my next visit.
