There's far more to Cyprus than just the bustling resorts: the favourable climate, attractive scenery and many kilometres of footpaths and nature trails make it an ideal destination for walkers. This guidebook presents 44 graded walks spread across the island, covering both southern and northern Cyprus, with a slight focus on the central Troodos region. Clear description and mapping is presented for each route and a route summary table makes it easy to choose an appropriate walk.
The walks, of 3 to 20km, range from gentle strolls to longer, more demanding routes, sometimes involving steep ascents, difficult terrain or navigational challenge. They showcase Cyprus's captivating landscapes, from the sun-kissed coastline lapped by clear turquoise waters to the pine-clad slopes of the Troodos and Besparmak Mountains. Many visit sites of historical interest – including UNESCO-listed Byzantine monasteries, Venetian bridges, defensive castles and hideouts from the 1950s independence struggle – and other highlights include the stunning Avakas Gorge, the caves of Cape Greco and the striking Besparmak range.
As well as the walks, the guide offers plenty of information to help you organise and get the most out of your trip, with advice on transport, bases and border crossings. There is a summary of the island's fascinating and turbulent history and an overview of its plants and wildlife. Blending information with inspiration, 'Walking in Cyprus' contains all you need to discover a hidden side to this Mediterranean gem.
