Circular 16 or 20-km long walking route at the tip of Karpasia peninsula
Karpasia Tip - Apostle Antreas
Our walk starts at the historic Apostle Antreas monastery and goes north west, all the way to the north Karpasia coast. The walk is in a pristine, almost untouched by man, rich in biodiversity area of Cyprus, dominated by low juniper vegetation.
Walkers may see many different plant species, many of them in bloom from February to May. The walk offers excellent vistas of the north Karpasia coast towards Ourania (some ruins remain of this medieval city) and all the way east to Kleides islands and south to Apostle Antreas monastery.
A high point of the walk is probably a stop at Apostle Antreas cape, the most eastern point in Cyprus.
The short walk passes by an excellent beach and the long one also by another one.
Walkers may see many feral donkeys in the area.
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

The number above roughly applies to the time on the trip including transportation and the walking trip (walking, having breaks, swimming). If we have time on the way back we may stop to see at least one other natural or cultural attraction.
We usually use a Citroen C8 7-seater. It was built in 2006, it is in a very good condition and air-conditioned.
I pick up the customers from a location in Cyprus and deliver them to the requested location at the end of the walking trip.
