Free winter experience for Larnaca visitors returns

 

Larnaca is relaunching a weekly programme with a wonderful array of complimentary activities for foreign and local visitors.

The programme is offered every winter for tourists staying in licensed hotels, apartments and agrotouristic establishments within the Larnaca region.

It runs from November 1 – March 31, and has been created by the Larnaca Tourism Board, the CTO and Local Authorities of the region to offer a packed timetable with something different every day of the week.

The week starts with a bird watching and basket weaving session at Voroklini Lake on Monday morning. On Tuesday, there is a full day out at the Mazotos Camel Park, whilst the temperatures in Larnaca are perfect for taking a walking tour of the town on Wednesday, complete with professional tour guide.

Thursday’s activity is a trip to the village of Athienou for a visit to the Kallinikeio Museum and the restored Flour Mill and for some halloumi making at the restored Father Kallinikos Stavrovouniotis House. On Friday there is a guided tour – this time of the local workshops, where traditional crafts are practised. Saturday brings a second excursion to the picturesque villages of Lefkara, Kato Drys and Skarinou for sightseeing,  wine tasting and traditional product demonstrations.

The activities are all free of charge upon presentation of a voucher issued by the hotels for their staying guests. All the activities are available on a ‘turn up and enjoy’ basis except for the two village excursions which require one day’s notice.
