The best feature for walkers in North Cyprus is the Kyrenia Mountain Range, which runs parallel to the sea along almost the entire north coast. The ranges proximity to the coast means walkers can easily start their day enjoying fantastic views over the coast and the Mesaoria Plane from the top of the mountains and then end their day with a swim at the beach looking back to beautiful views of the mountains from which they’ve just come. The walker will enjoy a variety of scenery and habitats within a single day. 

This is a specially tailored package where we have taken the best bits of the 255 km trail and created an 8-day tour with 6 days of walking. You will explore the crusader’s castles: St Hilarion and Kantara, the charming village and Abbey of Bellapais and ancient mosaics, monasteries and churches tucked away in the forests with plenty of exercises in between to keep you fit. If you like this tour and want to do more walks or other activities such as paragliding, parasailing or other sports, we are happy to arrange for you or extend your stay.

The hiking routes are easy to moderate. There are no dangerous parts on the tracks just some fairly steep climbs and often dry underfoot conditions, and it could be a bit slippery during the hot season. The hikes are generally undulating but on certain sections, you could climb up to 300 to 400 m.
