The environmentalist's adventure trip with culinary aromas and wine colours


Ezousa Valley lays right in the middle of Paphos district. It stretches from Paphos forest mountain all the way down to the seafront. It preserves one of the most important fauna and flora habitat of the area.
The Episkopi Environmental information centre is a state of the art institution. It presents the valley's ecosystem thus making us understand the surrounding environment. You will watch a short, well presented video.
Tour itinerary goes through the most beautiful landscapes of Ezousa Valley. We will visit two boutique wineries, meet and chat with the wine makers and get introduced to their wine making philosophy. You will taste rare, indigenous grape varieties like Xinisteri, Promara, Morokanella, Mavro and Maratheftiko. We will also visit a Halloumi cheese production unit to sample some of their products. We will stay approx. 45min-1 hour at each venue.
There are limitless options for lunch and other wishes of yours to see more on your trip.
