Come to Cyprus, holiday with nature
While many people think that the main purpose of a holiday is to hang around on a private beach all day, never leaving the confines of their 5 star luxury hotels, the best travellers know that exploration always pays off. To truly get a taste of your holiday destination, you’ve got to get out of the hotel and into nature. A Cyprus holiday is the ideal opportunity to relax, get back to the wild and unwind like nowhere else.
Stunning beauty everywhere you look means Cyprus holiday perfection
A lot of visitors flock to the wonderful coastal town of Pissouri, and with good reason; it’s surrounded by unspoiled countryside and also has the Troodos Mountains as a backdrop. Even a few minutes walk out of the town will bring you some truly majestic sights, so be ready with your camera to capture the moment. With a fresh breeze coming in from the blue waters of the Mediterranean and not a cloud in the sky, you may find yourself never wanting to leave this idyllic paradise.
Those who want to head a little higher into the mountains need only ask at the receptions of the island’s 5 star luxury hotels. Many of them organise treks and expeditions around Cyprus, run by locals who have been honing their craft and discovering the best places and views for years. Perhaps you’ll even discover a long hidden haven for local wildlife yourself when you venture forth on your explorations.
Leave the 5 star luxury hotels behind (for a short while at least)
Those who prefer their sports on the extreme side of the spectrum will not be let down when they discover the incredible routes dedicated to some of Europe’s finest mountain biking trails. The Troodos Mountains provide some truly challenging terrain for thrill seekers but there’s plenty of opportunity for novice riders to get involved too. No matter how brave you feel, all riders are sure to enjoy the experience and the stunning views.
Nature lovers will also be delighted to discover the countless species of animals and birds that can be found on the island, so if you fancy yourself as something of a wildlife photographer this could be the ideal place to practice your skills. The whole of Cyprus is an area of outstanding natural beauty, so be sure to spend some time seeing what’s out there. After all, staying in 5 star luxury hotels is great, but exploring the island can bring you so much more.
