Hiking and nature activities, including guided tours led by experienced tourist guides, are being launched by the Cyprus Tourism Deputy Ministry.
“The selected trails wind their way through sprawling forests and plains, breathtaking hills, astounding terrain, colourful villages, captivating shorelines and lush meadows.
“This program is suitable for experienced hikers and enthusiasts,” a press release published on the heartland of legends website says.
Most of the trails are rated as having “high difficulty” and have great elevation changes; therefore, participants will need a good bit of endurance and proper gear, such as durable boots, trekking poles, hats, sunscreen, snacks and plenty of water.
No transportation will be provided; therefore, all participants must be at the designated meeting point on time.
