Explore the unspoilt wilderness of the West/Northwest Coast of Cyprus
This tour will give you the opportunity to explore the island's most unspoiled area, the peninsula of Akamas; walk through the Avakas Gorge, visit Lara Bay - the Green Turtle's hatchery - swim in crystal clear waters, visit the Baths of Aphrodite (the Goddess of Love and Beauty). This is a full day excursion, and at least half of it takes place in non-tarmac roads. Comfortable shoes are recommended. Don't forget your swimwear (we'll visit a folklore museum or go for wine-tasting in case the weather does not allow for a swim).

The tour was fantastic. Andreas was very considerate of our needs throughout (we are probably older than many of his clients) and also adapted the tour in accordance with our interests. He gave us enough but not too much information and radiated enthusiasm particularly about plants and wildlife. We had great fun and learned a lot.
