Overview

Visit 11th  century Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Observe its incredibly vivid frescoes.

Meander inside picturesque old part of Kakopetria village – see a number of attractions, walk along a shaded stream, have Cyprus coffee or fresh garlic and lemon trout meal.

Optionally walk on flat 7-km 'Artemis trail' at the top of geologically unique Troodos.

The main part of the trip includes:

  1. A visit to 11th century UNESCO World Heritage Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis painted church - this used to be a monastery but only the chapel survives. The frescoes are superb, dating from the 11th century onward. The colors are quite vivid and preserved. A visit here is not to be missed.
  2. Meander inside the picturesque old part of Kakopetria village - visit old olive and grape presses, an old church and watermill. We can do a short walk along a shaded stream opposite the old part of Kakopetria village. Cyprus coffee on a coffee shop veranda overlooking the stream is highly recommended as is a fresh trout meal at a nearby restaurant.


It should be noted that we are providing a suggestion about the route here. The group may customize the trip as per its preferences (upon agreement with us). For example explorers may choose to visit Panagia tis Asinou Unesco World Heritage church instead of Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis.

Itinerary

The basic itinerary is from the hotel (or other pickup point) in Limassol, Larnaca or Nicosia to Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis for a short visit and then to the old part of Kakopetria village for longer exploration. From Kakopetria we go back to the hotel (or other delivery point).

If we have time we stop at (at least) one place of interest such as an ancient chapel, medieval bridge or watermill.

Price: Note that default price shown as 100 euros is per person price based on two people attendance in total. We offer groups discounts. Please choose the number of people joining the walking tour and price will update accordingly.

Meeting & End Location: Customers' hotel (or cruise ship etc.) in one of Larnaca, Limassol or Nicosia

Duration: 6 hours - Roughly applies to the time of travel and the actual walking itinerary (walking, having breaks). If we have time on the way back we may stop to see at least one other natural or cultural attraction.

Our Vehicle: We usually use a Citroen C8 7-seater. It was built in 2006, it is in a very good condition and air-conditioned.

Inclusions

Transportation: I will pick up the customers from a location in Nicosia, Larnaca or Limassol and deliver them back to the same location at the end of the trip (unless we make other arrangements).

What To Bring Along

Especially if walkers want to do the optional flat 7-km long Artemis walk (which of course would mean that they would have very limited time in Kakopetria village), it is advisable that walkers wear sturdy shoes (with grip), bring along drinking water (and possibly snacks) and are properly dressed for easy walking (sunscreen, hat for the hot season and possibly a walking pole).

Adults + Children

The quoted prices are for the number of adults in the trip. Children can join the trip free of charge (keeping in mind that the total number of passenger seats for the trip is six).

Additional Information

  • Explorers should keep in mind that Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis is closed on Mondays (we could visit other relatively nearby UNESCO World Heritage churches instead on Mondays).
  • Those who prefer to do Artemis walk as part of the trip (the walk usually takes about two and a half hours) we do the walk first. We do Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis and/or the old part of Kakopetria subject to time availability.
