Full description

Experience the best of the Akamas Peninsula National Park on this day tour from Paphos. Hike through the Avakas Gorge, visit a turtle conservation project at Lara Bay, and witness the shipwreck of EDRO III.

After getting picked up from your hotel in Paphos, head to your first stop, the Avakas Gorge, for a trek through nature. Hike through the gorge and take in its unspoiled flora and fauna.

Continue to Lara Bay, a nesting ground for green and loggerhead turtles and home to the turtle conservation project. If you are lucky, you may even see the baby turtles hatching (end of July to October). Enjoy some free time for a swim here before grabbing lunch at a nearby tavern (not included in the price).

Finally, drive to St. George Church, located in a small fishing village overlooking the sea to take photographs. On the way back to Paphos stop to witness the shipwreck of the EDRO III against the backdrops of the sea caves and rocky shoreline.

in general, most of the trip is the best PLUS professional guide an interesting plan, but when there was an accident of a lost phone by a participant, the organizer did not even want to stop for a moment to get him back Well not cool, luckily, a day later a happy finder came to the hotel and I recovered the phone! !! I expected a much better response from the organizer that I would care that the whole trip was satisfied

We had a great time on this trip! Both the guide and the driver were very friendly, and the places we visited were amazing- the Akamas gorge, Lara Bay and the church were great and we had plenty of time to explore them all. The highlight of the tour was the shipwreck and sea caves. All in all a must do whilst in Cyprus
