Cyprus is full of hidden treasures and you’ll explore some of the island’s rural highlights on this full day excursion into the Troodos Mountains.

You’ll drive into the countryside – where most say the trip is worth it for the views alone – to Anogyra, Lampadistis Monastery and Kalopanayiotis with a few delights in between. First up is Anogyra  a gorgeous village that’s surrounded by carob trees. We’ll stop off at the Carob and Pasteli Museum to get better acquainted with this sweet treat before heading to Tzelefos Bridge.

Then, it’s on to Kalopanayiotis village. Here, you’ll stop at a tavern for a traditional Cypriot lunch before another highlight on this day; the Lampadistis Monastery, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1985.

Apart from the complex of the three churches there are other monastic buildings including cells, auxiliary rooms and an oil press and before heading back to the resort you’ll be able to sample a typical herbal tea in Mandria.
