Explore Aphrodite's Playground


The walk is in a pristine, almost untouched by man, rich in biodiversity area of Cyprus. Usually we start walking in Neo Chorio village and initially go through farmland west to the Smiyies picnic area. From there the route goes north and ascends to the peak known as 'Moutti tis Sotiras' from where one enjoys unobstructed views of the north coast from Cape Arnaouti, the tip of Akamas, towards the north west all the way to Pomos in the north east. After a pause for a picnic and for enjoying the majestic view we walk to Baths of Aphrodite cave on the Aphrodite trail (the last stretch is on the coastal dirt road, near the cliff).

We can make other arrangements for shorter walks in the area if travellers prefer (eg. do the 7-km Aphrodite trail or even a one way coastal walk with boat transportation -for a fee- in the opposite way).

Itinerary

The basic itinerary is from the hotel (or other pickup point) to the start of the walk and then from the end of the walk back to the the hotel (or other delivery point). If we have time we may stop at (at least) one place of interest such as an ancient chapel, medieval bridge or watermill.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Customers' hotel (or cruise ship etc) in one of Larnaca, Limassol, Pissouri, Kouklia, Paphos or Nicosia

End location: Customers' hotel (or cruise ship etc) in one of Larnaca, Limassol, Pissouri, Kouklia, Paphos or Nicosia

Duration: 9 hours

The number above roughly applies to the time for the whole trip - including transportation and the actual walking trip (walking, having breaks, swimming). If we have time we may have stops to see at least one other natural or cultural attraction.

Transportation

We usually use a Citroen C8 7-seater. It was built in 2006, it is in a very good condition and air-conditioned.

What’s Included

Other: My services as a local guide and Private Transportation.

I will pick up the customers from a location in Cyprus and deliver them to the requested location at the end of the walking trip.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

5 Euro - There is no meal included in the trip. A small amount is suggested (5 Euro)as a budget for each participant in case they want to buy a small amount of food or drinks.

What’s Extra

Other: Participants should bring along some food and water. If they prefer we can buy what they need on the way.

Restrictions

I am not a licensed Cyprus Tourism Organisation guide and as a result I cannot guide visitors into archaeological sites requiring entry tickets.
