We are walking on a superb 13-km long circular trail near Madari mountain peak (elevation about 1,650 m – in the area of Pitsilia, on the Troodos mountain range).
The trail is of medium difficulty, without very steep ascents and descents, but with quite significant total ascent and descent (850 m). One may enjoy great views towards the north, including Morphou bay, and to the south, including the village of Kyperounta and Troodos peak (to the west there is view towards the village of Spilia). There is great variety in vegetation; travellers walk past golden oak, wild rose and mastic bushes, junipers, pine, strawberry trees, rock rose and sage, and even cedar, plane trees and bracken.
One may also see the interesting rock formations in the area.
The fee will be 50 Euro per participant in our car (or minibus), 30 Euro per participant in their car (excluding meals, entry tickets etc). We will have a picnic on the site (walkers bring their own food).
Our car starts from Nicosia.

What to bring along
Sturdy shoes (with grip), clean t-shirt to change after walk, towel, possibly slippers to put on after walk, sun protection, hat and sunglasses, loads of water and snacks (it’s the middle of winter at a high altitude so warm clothes will be probably needed).

Cyprus Walks Etc guided walks are either on official trails or on dirt roads. We are not liable in case of participant injuries that may be caused in the course of these excursions.
We expect all participants to be covered by relevant insurance during our expeditions.
