Walk at your own pace through a variety of landscapes on a self-guided, non-group walking holiday in Cyprus. We arrange car hire, as well as accommodation at friendly hotels, and supply you with our trusted route notes, leaving you free to enjoy your beautiful surroundings.
Frescoed Byzantine chapels and monasteries, not to mention archaeological sites steeped in myth, mean that our walking holidays in Cyprus are about more than walking. These being Slow holidays, we encourage you to stop for cultural visits as the mood takes you – you’re not part of a group, and have complete freedom to explore (we arrange a hire car for you), so make the most of it, following our reliable route notes at your own pace.
Holidaying in Cyprus
Travel between the UK and Cyprus is currently restricted. If, however, you would like to plan a walking holiday, we are accepting bookings for departures from 1 April 2021 onwards, with the added bonus that prices remain unchanged from 2020.
The three best regions for walking in Cyprus are the rugged, pine-clad Troodos Mountains with their surprisingly alpine-like valleys; the Krasochoria wine region on the Troodos’ southern slopes; and the Akamas Peninsula with its more Mediterranean landscapes. Inntravel’s walking holidays in Cyprus offer the choice of exploring two, or all three, of these regions. The scenery may be very different, but all three areas reward walkers with views that stretch for miles.
Travelling from outside the UK?
To give you a good idea of how we can tailor our trips to your individual requirements, take a look at the section of the website specifically devoted to travellers from outside the UK.
Alternatively, if you’d prefer to get the low-down on Inntravel holidays from someone who has first-hand experience, you can email Phil Wise. Based in California, Phil has taken many trips with us over the years, and will be happy to give you general information about travelling to Europe and the overall Inntravel holiday experience from an American perspective.
How our walking holidays are graded
So broad is our selection, that we have a self-guided walking holiday for everyone, from gentle strolls (grade 1) to high-mountain hikes (grade 3). Naturally, the grading of individual holidays is subjective and within each holiday you will occasionally find some days slightly more challenging or easier than others. If you need any advice, please ask our friendly experts.
Generally easy walking with few ascents / descents, but perhaps the occasional long day.
Easy-to-moderate walking with some ascents / descents, and occasional longer days.
Moderate walking on varied terrain, with some long days and regular ascents / descents.
Moderate-to-challenging walking on more rugged terrain with significant ascents / descents on most days. Compass skills may be required (check the individual holiday).
Challenging hikes, featuring long days with significant ascent / descent on challenging terrain. Compass skills may be required.
Choice of easier or harder routes, so that you can tailor most days to your requirements.
Walking holidays in Cyprus, the Inntravel way
Picturesque landscapes; family-run accommodation chosen by us for their friendliness; and flavoursome local cuisine. These are the three essential ingredients of Inntravel holidays, and our walking holidays in Cyprus are no different. The Cypriots’ warm hospitality will leave a lasting impression.
Comprehensive route notes
We take great pride in our route guides, updating them constantly so that you have the most current information and can enjoy the richest possible holiday experience. Walking at a pace that suits you, you can rely on them to steer you from A to B, and fill you in about places of interest and local culture along the way.
Your holiday, your way
Not being part of a group means you can stay in intimate hotels and guesthouses, and gives you so much freedom. Freedom to choose your start date, the length of your holiday (feel free to add extra nights) and your travel route – we’ll happily book a bespoke travel package for you, either by air, by rail or by ferry.
