NATURE TRAILS

Cyprus


view from the bayThere are some 200km of purpose built paths across nearly 50 nature trails on the island. Spring (March to early May) is probably the best time for walking in Cyprus as the temperatures are agreeable and the landscape is awash with colour with almost 600 species of plant to be found. At this time of year you are more likely to spot one of the 45 different species of orchids that grow on the island.

Pick up a copy of the nature trail guide, available from any CTO Office (Cyprus Tourist Organisation).
