Akamas Panoramic Walk

3. Akamas Panoramic Walk

Explore the playground of the goddess of love, Aphrodite. This 7-kilometer walk takes place in Akamas, a pristine, almost untouched area of Cyprus. If the customers prefer, we do a longer, 10-km walk and first do the east part of the Adonis trail, reaching the ruins of a medieval monastery for a picnic. From there, the route ascends to the peak known as "Moutti tis Sotiras". Enjoy unobstructed views of the north coast from Cape Arnaouti, the tip of Akamas, towards Chrysochou Bay, and the northwest all the way to Pomos in the northeast. After a pause for a picnic (in summer, we usually stop at a shaded spot) and soaking in the majestic views, walk to the Baths of Aphrodite on the Aphrodite trail (the last stretch is on a coastal dirt road, near the cliff). Depending on travelers' preferences and time availability, the tour route can be made longer (10 or 13 km). Other activities like swimming and snorkeling can also be included (usually during the hot season).

What people are saying about Nicosia District

Very interesting tour to get to know Nicosia while learning more about the history of the (divided) city and island. Nicosia itself is not a beautiful city in my opinion, but there are many beautiful places to explore that you might not even find with a travel guide. With the whole history (starting with the city wall from the Middle Ages) to the separation and the border crossings and UN-no man's land historically very interesting and city tour with Mrs. Wörmann highly recommended. Did a 3 hour tour.

If there are Academy Awards for travel guides and travel companies then I would like to nominate Helena and Cyprus Taste Tours! I had an amazing Sunday filled with stories about local people & culture, fun encounters with local food and much more. Highly recommended!

Mayra was such a great guide! We went to three different wineries, loved the snacks in between. Very happy we booked the tour, especially since we were only 4 people (which made the tour very personal)

The tour was spectacular as we are travelers that wanted rest and relaxation. Most of all we have enjoyed the wine and the beautiful hospitality from the Cypriots as well as our tour guide.

Very well guided hike through great landscape. A lot of information about history as well as geology and botany
