The Troodos Mountains are an ideal respite from the bustling coastal towns. This excursion will give you a glimpse of life in the highlands and Greek Orthodox rituals. We kick off with a drive to Anogyra, considered ‘carob capital’ of the island, it’s a gorgeous village outside Limasol that’s surrounded by carob trees, cultivated in the area for thousands of years.

We'll stop off at the Carob and Pastel Museum to get better acquainted with this regional delight and its history. After a stop at the picturesque Tzelefos Bridge, it’s then on to explore the largest and most lavish religious institution in Cyprus. Set high in the west of the Troodos, Kykkos Monastery was founded nine centuries ago and your guide will fill you in on its legends.

You’ll be able to explore its cloisters and courtyards, and admire its rainbow-coloured mosaics. Next, we’ll head to Kalopanyiotis for a traditional Cypriot lunch before taking the road through mountain villages en route to your resort.
