From Paphos: Akamas Peninsula National Park Day Trip

2. From Paphos: Akamas Peninsula National Park Day Trip

Experience the best of the Akamas Peninsula National Park on this day tour from Paphos. Hike through the Avakas Gorge, visit a turtle conservation project at Lara Bay, and witness the shipwreck of EDRO III. After getting picked up from your hotel in Paphos, head to your first stop, the Avakas Gorge, for a trek through nature. Hike through the gorge and take in its unspoiled flora and fauna. Continue to Lara Bay, a nesting ground for green and loggerhead turtles and home to the turtle conservation project. If you are lucky, you may even see the baby turtles hatching (end of July to October). Enjoy some free time for a swim here before grabbing lunch at a nearby tavern (not included in the price). Finally, drive to St. George Church, located in a small fishing village overlooking the sea to take photographs. On the way back to Paphos stop to witness the shipwreck of the EDRO III against the backdrops of the sea caves and rocky shoreline.

Akamas Panoramic Walk

3. Akamas Panoramic Walk

Explore the playground of the goddess of love, Aphrodite. This 7-kilometer walk takes place in Akamas, a pristine, almost untouched area of Cyprus. If the customers prefer, we do a longer, 10-km walk and first do the east part of the Adonis trail, reaching the ruins of a medieval monastery for a picnic. From there, the route ascends to the peak known as "Moutti tis Sotiras". Enjoy unobstructed views of the north coast from Cape Arnaouti, the tip of Akamas, towards Chrysochou Bay, and the northwest all the way to Pomos in the northeast. After a pause for a picnic (in summer, we usually stop at a shaded spot) and soaking in the majestic views, walk to the Baths of Aphrodite on the Aphrodite trail (the last stretch is on a coastal dirt road, near the cliff). Depending on travelers' preferences and time availability, the tour route can be made longer (10 or 13 km). Other activities like swimming and snorkeling can also be included (usually during the hot season).

We had a great time on this trip! Both the guide and the driver were very friendly, and the places we visited were amazing- the Akamas gorge, Lara Bay and the church were great and we had plenty of time to explore them all. The highlight of the tour was the shipwreck and sea caves. All in all a must do whilst in Cyprus

I went diving for the first time in my life and it was the best experience. The guys who explained it to us were very pleasant and explained everything clearly.

All perfect. Punctual and great guide (Katerina). Very nice driver. Beautiful places visited. I highly recommend it.
