Tours in Cyprus

Cyprus is often associated with the Greeks, with the term Greek Cypriot used by many to describe their heritage. Even this hints at the island's fascinating story. The Greeks arrived on the island of Cyprus around 3,500 years ago, though many civilisations have since followed. Each left its imprint, from the seafaring Phoenician tradespeople to the all-conquering Romans. 

Geography often dictates history, and Cyprus was coveted by many for its ideal location as a launch point for three continents - Africa, Asia and of course Europe. The word fusion is perhaps the most useful when describing Cyprus, historically, culturally and of course gastronomically.

From a natural perspective, as one of the largest islands in the Mediterranean, Cyprus offers a wealth of opportunities. The Troodos Mountains offer the opportunity to enjoy spectacular views, UNESCO heritage sites and some excellent walking trails. Unsurprisingly Cyrpus also has coastal scenery to rival any of its Mediterranean neighbours. Explore the Akamas Peninsula for hidden coves, splendid beaches and ancient stone villages. There is so much to discover beyond the more popular beach holiday destinations. To see the real Cyprus, all you need is your own two feet!
