All about the Walks in the Troodos Mountains.

This week-long linear walk through the Troodos Mountains of Cyprus takes in some spectacular views, nature trails and UNESCO World Heritage sites. The first few walks are based from the quaint mountain village of Kakopetria with its narrow, cobbled streets and the nearby 11th century painted church, Agios Nikolaos tis Stegis, one of ten that make up a UNESCO World Heritage Site of Painted Churches in the Troodos Region. Enjoy fabulous views across the Solea and Marathasa valleys to the sea as well as the northern slope of Mount Olympus – the highest point in Cyprus and home to both a long range British radar installation and a ski resort in winter.
The walking continues along sections of the Mnimata Piskopon (Monuments of the Archbishops) trail, the Atalanti trail (one of Cyprus’s highest elevation trails) and the Persephone trail as you make your way, uphill, from Kakopetria to Troodos Square and then on, downhill, to Pano Platres. With some spectacular views across the island towards Limassol and a visit to the Caledonia Waterfall, so named as it reminded a Scottish expedition to the region, back in 1878, of parts of the highlands. The week finishes with a walk through forest and vineyards to the picturesque, stone-built village of Omodos in the Krassochoria (wine villages) region of Limassol.
The hotels you stay in are a mix of three and four star properties and a mix of rustic styling, in Kakopetria, to a more modern feel with contemporary styling in Troodos Square and with traditional undertones in Pano Platres. Each of the hotels have their own restaurant but are also within walking distance of a choice of restaurants so you can enjoy the local cuisine each evening.
