Xeros Potamos Valley & Vouni Panagias Trail Private Walk from Nicosia

08 Hours

Introduction to Xeros Potamos Valley and Vouni Panagias trail walk

Description

This tour is a combination of an introductory walk in Xeros Potamos Valley and Vouni Panagias trail, depending on travellers’ preferences and time availability. Take a walk in Xeros Potamos Valley and then, drive by car to Pano Panagia village for a Vouni Panagias walk. If time permits on the way, we will visit a few attractions such as a chapel, a winery and a monastery. The trip may be customised to include a meal at a traditional village restaurant, winetasting, and more.

Itinerary
  • Visit Panagia Tou Sinti Monasteryexpand_more

    First, we will go for a walk in the Xeros Potamos Valley which means ''Dry River'' and indeed the river disappears for much of its route during the hot season. At the same time, it is pleasant to walk here as there are excellent attractions to see including Panagia tou Sinti monastery, one or two watermills, rock formations with protected caves, alder trees along much of the river bed as well as brambles.

  • Take a tour of Vouni Panagiasexpand_more

    Vouni Panagias circular walking trail (8 km / 5 mi long) starts at Pano Panagia village and is found at a high elevation (between 800 and 1, 100 m of elevation). We will walk through vineyards (which change tremendously through the seasons), past peculiar rock formations and cliffs and enjoy excellent vistas towards Ezousa Valley and Paphos Forest.

What to bring

Water is a must (though one could probably buy in Pano Panagia village). 

Good shoes (with grip) for walking are necessary as well as sun protection, especially during warm seasons. 

Usually, we have a picnic so one should bring along their own food. 

Know before you go

Confirmation will be received at the time of booking.

A maximum of four (4) people per booking (an additional 20 Euro if the total number of participants is five and 30 Euro if the total number is six instead of a maximum of four).

Not recommended for participants with heart complaints or other serious medical conditions, for people with walking difficulty or uneasiness with walking close to steep slopes. 

Travellers can present either a paper or an electronic voucher for this activity.

Minors can participate provided they are escorted by their parent(s).

Duration: Six hours

Pickup time: To be agreed with the travellers. Usually, it is between 08:30 and 09:30.

Pickup location: At an agreed place (e.g. hotel, port, etc.) usually in Limassol or Paphos. From Agia Napa or Protaras, the trip would make sense if the duration is 10 hours.

From Nicosia or Larnaca, an 8-hour trip would be possible provided we do only one of the two walks as, due to the significant distance, there is considerable time to be spent in the car.

The combination of the two trails offers a rich experience over a considerable elevation range in Cyprus.

Transportation: We usually use a Citroen C8 MPV car.
