Perhaps the best way to see a country is on foot. If you love the great outdoors or want to improve your fitness, hiking is ideal. Leave your car and experience the culture and nature of the island in the best possible way. Cyprus has numerous signposted paths or nature trails, some more challenging than others, but all are a feast for the senses, especially in the springtime when you can experience the sights, sounds and smells of nature at first hand.

All nature trails are divided in 3 categories of difficulty, as follows:
Category 1:
Easy trail, with gentle gradient. Suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
Category 2:
Average degree of difficulty, suitable for adults in fair to good fitness levels. Sudden changes
in gradient (uphill and/or downhill), and/or course along narrow or rough terrain.
Category 3:
High degree of difficulty. Route with difficult terrain such as sudden changes in gradient
(uphill and/or downhill), course along particularly rough and/or slippery, and/or narrow,
and/or steep terrain. Suitable for adults in very good to excellent fitness levels.
Unsuitable for young children.
