Experience Rural & Nature Reaching New Heights in Cyprus!

Reaching New Heights in Cyprus!

Whilst still an emerging destination for climbing sports, Cyprus has all the elements of a great location for climbing, hiking and orienteering, thanks to its favourable weather conditions, stunning rugged backdrops, complex rock types, and the quality, variety and diversity of its climbing routes (both traditional and sport).

All the relevant information for climbing sports on the island, along with the calendar of events, and important guidelines can be found on the website of the Cyprus Mountaineering, Climbing and Orienteering Federation of Cyprus (KOMOAA).

As the national governing body for the sports in Cyprus, KOMOAA is a member of the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC), and the International Mountaineering Climbing Federation (UIAA). Its members include several climbing clubs, along with schools that provide accredited courses, guided group excursions, equipment hire and maps.

Although a sport still in its infancy, orienteering is also a growing activity on the island, thanks to its suitability for the pursuit.

The official organization for orienteering on the island is Orientaction, which promotes the sport under the auspices of KOMOAA. The club organizes several events a year in parks, forested areas and built up areas, mostly in traditional villages, and owns several maps of traditional villages, national forest parks, forests and mountainous regions.
