Renowned for its warm hospitality, this gem of an island is the setting of ancient myths and is a historic treasure trove of different cultures, positioned as it is between many lands.
Culturally it has a kaleidoscopic blend with its main influences being Western Europe. Due to its proximity to Asia and Africa there is a very tangible hint of the East. Long coveted by mainland Greece and Turkey, this small island has its own definite and beguiling character.
It is also an island of rich flora and surprising and diverse landscapes, from the Troodos Mountains’ herb-clad slopes dotted with Byzantine chapels, to the vineyards of the Krasochoria wine region and the more Mediterranean landscapes of the Akamas Peninsula. It is in these three areas that you will find the island’s best walking.
