May to Oct
These treks are the standard that we operate in the summer months (low season for trekking)
Our most popular trek features an adventure through one of Cyprus' most impressive natural wonders; a giant limestone canyon. This slippery and challenging journey begins at the foot of an isolated goat path and ends on top of a 300 metre cliff.
WARNING: This trek should be avoided by those with heart/respiratory conditions, balance problems, fear of heights and/ or a low tolerance for pain and hardship.

The Dream trek
Easy to intermediate 15kms
This trek incorporates 3 of the most unusual nature spots in western Cyprus. A spectacular 10m waterfall (with optional swimming), an extinct 30m. high waterfall with an impressive limestone chute, and a mysterious stretch of coastline with dozens of sea caves, natural archways and erosional sculpture. Like a dream it's too good to be true.
Through orchards, vineyards and pine forests we reach the upper ridges of the Dhiarizos valley, passing many ancient villages, medieval monuments ( including a deserted monastery) a late Byzantine settlement, the Cave of the 318 Priests and a prehistoric cemetery. The landscape changes constantly making this one of the most memorable treks in Cyprus.
During the hot summer months, we limit our general excursions to 3 a week, we do however continue to plan small group and private excursions, and we can let you have our plan for the week you want to come if you drop us a line below and include your fax number.
