This year we have introduced a new recommended activity to our 8509 Magazine – jeep tours with Eco Tour Adventures. We are passionate about the Cypriot countryside and highly recommend any visitor to take a little time to get a taste of it while they are here. And there’s no easier, or nicer way to do this from Aphrodite Hills than to call Eco Tour Adventures and have them pick you up directly from your villa!
Eco Tour Adventures offer a selection of tours which are a fantastic, insightful and easy way for you to discover some of the hidden treasures of the island. They are our favourite tour company and Andreas, the owner, offers guests all of his local knowledge; he knows all the historical sites, off-the-beaten-track hot spots, wineries and hidden restaurants. Various car seats are available for kids as well.
There are two main tours available: Troodos Mountains EcoTour Adventure and Akamas Coastal EcoTour Adventure (see details below), however Andreas also offers customised private tours which are tailored to your interests; call Andreas and Lorraine for a chat to discuss what they can offer.
AKAMAS – with EcoTour Adventures:
One of our favourite destinations in Cyprus is the Akamas Peninsula National Park (230 square kilometres of pure beauty,and one of only 22 areas of endemism in Europe). ‘Roads’ here are not tarmacked, so book a trip with Andreas (our favourite tour guide) at EcoTour Adventures to get the best insight and knowledge of the area. Each tour is an individual adventure so the route and stops may vary according to weather conditions/times/distances.
Here is a typical example of a tour that gives you a good feel for the day: Once you have been collected you will drive to Akamas via the Paphos coast – first stop will be a short walk up Akavas Gorge – on to Lara Beach for a swim and a look into the turtle conservation area – drive through villages to a hand-picked restaurant for lunch with some culture and nature stops on the way – on to Baths of Aphrodite – stop off at a secluded beach for a swim in crystal clear waters – short break at an old coffee shop before home time.
