Self-Guided Walking Holidays in Cyprus
Seemingly isolated in the eastern Mediterranean, Cyprus has been at the cockpit of western history for thousands of years, notably during the medieval crusades, when it acted as a launch pad for the crusaders. These days crusades are led by the waves of tourists who arrive to enjoy the popular seaside resorts, but inland a few kilometres, an older World prevails. Sleepy villages, farms and forests with fabled mountain views. You will find in this a natural, unhurried people who are proud of their ancient associations.
Sherpa’s self-guided walking holidays in Cyprus are designed to help you get the most out of your visit, no matter what time of year you visit or how long you have. For most of the year our trips take in the best of the Troodos Mountains and Akamas Peninsula. In the winter, when there is snow on the Troodos Mountains our self-guided walking holidays concentrate on the western part of Cyprus, specifically the Akamas Peninsula, where the weather will remain warmer than in the mountains.
Our self-guided walking holidays are fully flexible which means you can normally start your walk on any day during the season and customise by adding extra days for resting or sightseeing.
As you're walking independently, you're free to follow the trail at your own pace. You set your own pace as you are not limited by the constraints of group travel. You are free to shorten or lengthen your walk as the terrain permits and can even take a day off, although you may need to travel onto your next accommodation by taxi or public transport in order to do so. As long as you are reasonably active you will be able to find a suitable tour and all of our tours are graded to help you choose the right walk for you.
How it works
From route notes and maps, to accommodation and luggage transfers - you're never on your own.
At the end of a day's walk you will be well looked after in our comfortable, boutique accommodation.
