In total there are about 135 hikes for you to discover within the region of South Cyprus. To get a first glimpse of what’s awaiting outdoor enthusiasts like you in South Cyprus, we created a short highlight list:
The Avakas Gorge Trail follows a linear route of 1,200 m (2,400 m return). The end of the trail is located inside the gorge and follows the course of the Avgas River, from where the gorge gets its name.
This track follows the E4 European Long Distance Walk across Cyprus as walked by myself in 2019. I have split the total route into four, this section covers the Machairas, Delikipos and Stavrovouni forests, from the village of Lazania to the Stavrovouni monastery.
The trail is circular and for about 2.5 km coincides with the Adonis Trail, up until the historical location of Pyrgos tis Rigainas (Tower of the Queen). This section of the trail is rocky and on an uphill slope.
The trail follows an upward incline until the top of the hill, called Pissouromoutti, which is where the trail gets its name from. A downward circular course around the hill then takes you back to the end of the trail.
