No visit to Cyprus is complete until you have experienced the magic of the Cyprus Mountains.
If you visit Cyprus in the summer months, the Troodos mountains offer a respite from the searing heat of the coastal regions, with temperatures at least 5 degrees cooler than the beach resorts.
Winter, on the other hand, offers the opportunity to SKI, yes, that's right to SKI and, if you're lucky enough (and brave enough to venture into the water!) you can even ski and swim on the same day.
The Troodos is also a paradise for hikers and bikers with lots of fantastic trails and awesome views.
TIP: Grab a copy of this great little walking guide packed full of stunning hikes in the Troodos mountains including the Atalante and Artemis trails.
There are many scenic routes up to Troodos from the coast, so take your time, admire the views and stop in a mountain village when you get hungry or thirsty where the locals will welcome you with open arms.
