Wander in famous lace producing Lefkara and spot birds in one of three prime birdwatching wetlands near Larnaca


This trip combines some of the best cultural heritage of Cyprus with excellent birdwatching at one of three top class birdwatching spots near Larnaca.

From Larnaca we will ascend to stone-built Pano Lefkara village, the prime home of famous Lefkaritika lace, enjoying view of semi-mountainous Larnaca. On the way there is the option to stop at Unesco World Heritage Choirokitia neolithic site. We will explore the medieval village of Lefkara through some of its very narrow streets and will have the chance to pause for Cyprus coffee or refreshments.

On our way back from Pano Lefkara we usually stop at one of three main birdwatching sites near Larnaca, which are among the best in Cyprus (Larnaca salt lake, Sewerage Processing Pools and Voroklini lake) . A main attraction of the wetlands are the thousands of flamingos who stay here for much of the year. Two of the three wetlands usually have water year round.

Time permitting, we may also visit historic Angeloktisti church in Kitio (ancient wall mosaic).

Itinerary

From Larnaca we head northwest and uphill to picturesque Pano Lefkara village. On our way (or on our return) provided travelers are interested we may stop at Unesco World Heritage Choirokitia neolithic site.

We stop at one of three important birdwatching wetlands near Larnaca before returning to our base in Larnaca.

What’s Included

Other: My guiding. I will pick up the customers from Larnaca and deliver them back to Larnaca at the end of the trip (unless we make other arrangements).

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. There is a 2.5 Euro entrance fee for Unesco World Heritage Choirokitia neolithic site.

What’s Extra

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

Entrance ticket would be necessary to enter Unesco World Heritage Choirokitia neolithic site.

Restrictions

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

A Recent Review of this tour

The tour was personal, informative, professional. In 6 hours we covered Neolithic antiquities with an easy climb through a restored stone age settlement; a visit to a charming hill village where lacemakers were practicing their craft; and a stop to see flamingos in the wild right by the busy Larnaka Airport! Phivos had knowledge in depth of the flora and fauna of Cyprus, the island's history and culture, and current day living. His manner was friendly and engaging, his car perfectly comfortable.
