The journey into the Troodos Mountains is a journey to another Cyprus. Rustic stone villages dot verdant valleys and traditional ways of life still hold sway. This full day excursion takes you into the spiritual heart of the highlands, the Kykkos Monastery, as well as the village of Omodos.
As you go into the depths of the pine-clad Troodos Mountains, you'll encounter beautiful landscapes which contrast the coast. Stop for a coffee break and some tasty local treats and eventually you'll reach the star of the show, the beautiful Kykkos Monastery. Perched on top Mount Kykkos, the monastery's interior is richly decorated and you won't be able to keep your eyes off the golden icons and frescoes-
You'll also have some free time to wander around the grounds and enjoy the panoramic views of the mountains. Afterwards, we'll head for a traditional lunch of local dishes before arriving in Omodos to wander the narrow Byzantine streets of this village nestled amid vineyards.
