Cyprus is an island of outstanding natural beauty. Away from the cosmopolitan towns and beach resorts you will find large areas of natural, unspoilt countryside. Rugged, pine-clad mountains, woodlands, gentle orchards and vineyards are interspersed with tranquil, timeless villages. In April and May the mountains come into bloom with April and October seeing a profusion of migratory birds passing through. The locals extend a warm and friendly welcome. We start our tour at Pedoulas village, high in the Troodos Mountains. During the week you will visit Moutoulas and its 13th century church enjoying wonderful scenery and spectacular views. You descend from the Troodos through the beautiful narrow valley of Stavros. The second half of the walk continues through a gentler landscape of vineyards and citrus groves passing the tiny 16th century Byzantine church of Ayia Paraskevi and onto the village of Drouseia. The trip ends in the small fishing harbour of Agios Georgios tis Pegeias.
