Description

The journey into the Troodos Mountains is a remarkable one. You’ll pass by small villages and experience the traditional Cypriot life. 

As you travel high in the Troodos Mountain you will have your first stop in Anogyra Village. In Anogyra village you will have the opportunity to visit the Holy Cross church and the Carob museum. Carob (or ‘black gold’ as once used to be called) of the island is an important part of Anogyra’s history. The village retains its charming character and local customs, such as the production of carobs and the making of a healthy carob toffee known as ‘Pasteli’. 

Next, you will be transferred to Arsos village for a quick coffee break. Discover, Tzelefos bridge. The bridge is part of the Venetian Bridges nature trail which connects three of the Venetian Bridges of Pafos Forest. The location around the bridge is perfect for all nature lovers but also for photographers. Do not miss the opportunity to capture the perfect picture. 

Then you will be driven to Kalopanayiotis Village where you will enjoy traditional Cyprus lunch and visit Ayios Lambadistis Monastery. The monastery is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a complex of three churches - Ioannis Lampadistis, Agios Irakleidios, and a Latin chapel - all under a single, enormous timber roof. 

Before heading back to the resorts, you will enjoy a wine tasting at a local winery.

Village life

Those gems of traditional rural life up on the mountain side are precious and well preserved. Seen and felt the warmth of the people in every day life. Excellent meal at the taverna. The drive through the forest was amazing. Thank you for the service and your courtesy.
