Tour Overview

North Cyprus remains a hidden gem of the Mediterranean, far less visited since separation in 1974 but, thanks to the abundance of archaeological remains from many civilisations that inhabited the island over the centuries, it is considered the most beautiful and historically interesting part of the island. With superb walking through unspoiled areas teeming with flowers and wildlife, and the relaxed local Turkish Cypriot culture, this is a walking and sightseeing tour not to be missed.

Highlights

  • See beautiful flora and fauna

  • Discover dramatic vistas and fascinating archaeology

  • Explore crusader castles

The group flight usually arrives into Lanarca in the early evening and the
group will be met and transferred to the start hotel. The transfer takes
approximately 1.5 hrs and includes crossing the border to North Cyprus. Land
Only clients should aim to arrive at the hotel this afternoon. In the evening
our guide will hold a short meeting to discuss the plan for the following
day, to give advice on the local area and to answer any questions.

  Hotel Pia Bella or similar


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


After the Welcome Briefing, we will have a short 20 minute transfer to
Bellapais village and the beautiful 12th century Bellapais Abbey, set in the
mountains to the south. There will be some free time to explore the beautiful
village and the abbey before starting our short walk to Cattalkoy village
where we get the transfer back to Kyrenia. The walk today is mainly along an
old dirt track; it is fairly undulating, with views out towards the coast
along the way.
Kyrenia is a pretty harbour town and a great base from which to explore North
Cyprus. Archaeological excavations show the area was first settled as far
back as the 10th century BC, and today historic buildings and winding lanes
offer a glimpse of the past, sitting side by side with more modern additions.
Our tour also takes in a visit to Kyrenia's Crusader Castle, which features
in English history as far back as the third crusade, when it was taken by
Richard the Lionheart. Since then the castle has been updated and used by
civilizations as diverse as the Ottomans, the Venetians and the British. As
well as glorious views and fascinating architecture, the castle also houses
the Shipwreck Museum, home to a 4th century Greek merchant vessel and its
cargo.
Walk: Distance 5 km Ascent 153 m Descent 145 m Max Altitude 350 m Time: 2

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Today we transfer approximately 25 minutes to the Saint Hilarion Castle, a
former stronghold of the Kyrenia mountains. Originally a hermitage site, the
monastery and church were built in the 10th century and later fortified. The
site consists of three main parts, linked by steep staircases; the lower
section was for the stables and men of arms, the middle section was home to
the church and the upper section was for use by only royalty. The stunning
views from the upper level are well worth the climb!
We will spend some time exploring the castle and enjoying the magnificent
views of Kyrenia, before starting our walk through the hills to Malatya
village. The first part of our walk is through the forest, following an old
riverbed with some loose rocks underfoot. We then reach an old dirt track
which we follow into the village, with stunning views of the coast ahead of
us and the impressive Saint Hilarion Castle up on the hills behind us. We
will walk through several small villages today, getting a good sense of local
life along the way. We’ll stop for lunch in a square in one of these
villages.
We will transfer back to the hotel this afternoon, stopping en route to enjoy
a drink on the seafront if time allows.
Walk: Distance 14 km Ascent 205 m Descent 400 m Max Altitude 900 m Time: 4

We head east approximately 1.5 hrs today, towards the Karpas peninsula. In
the morning, we will visit Incirli cave, the largest on the island, which
contains an amazing collection of stalactites and stalagmites, before heading
to the crusader castle at Kantara. Kantara Castle is one of three mountain
fortresses built by the Byzantines along the Kyrenia Mountains along with
Saint Hilarion Castle and Buffavento Castle. It was used as a beacon station,
communicating with Buffavento Castle with the use of fires. The castle boasts
an incredible 360 degree view of the region. On a clear day you can see not
only both coasts of the Karpaz Peninsula but also the mountains of Turkey!
After a picnic lunch near the castle, we will walk down the slopes of Five
Finger Mountains to the beautiful Kaplica beach. If time allows, there will
be a chance to swim at Kaplica beach after our walk, before we transfer
(approximately 1 hr) back to Kyrenia.

Today has been left free for further exploration of the island. Of the many
options available, of particular interest is a trip to the ancient city of
Salamis and the historical city of Famagusta. This trip starts with a visit
to St. Barnabas Monastery, followed by a tour of the Ancient city of Salamis,
which remains the biggest Roman site on the whole island of Cyprus. There
will be a lunch break by the sea before the tour continues to the ghost town
of Varosha, which is closed to the civil life since 1974. The trip finishes
with visiting the old walled city of Famagusta, where the St. Nicholas
Cathedral is located. This tour can be arranged locally (please note that you
may be joining a larger group on this tour). Of course you could choose to
spend the day relaxing, or explore under your own steam.

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


We start our day with a 45 minute transfer to the magnificent Buffavento
Castle. Standing at 970m, it is the highest Crusader castle on the island and
a highlight of the week. Buffavento was built in the 11th century as a part
of the island's defences against the Arabs, and also controlled an important
mountain pass. The dramatic location offers glorious views over Kyrenia and
the Five Finger Mountains.
This afternoon we will walk from the castle taking the footpath which leads
us down to Bellapais village. We will have our lunch at the top of the
mountain where you will see the both sides of the Five Finger Mountain. Our
route takes us along a narrow path, which is a bit rocky underfoot, passing
between the mountains, and offering us stunning views in both directions. The
vehicle meets us in Bellapais village, and we will transfer about 10 minutes
back to Kyrenia.
Walk: Distance 16 km Ascent 300 m Descent 350 m Max Altitude 970 m Time: 4

We enjoyed an interesting week of hiking and learning with a fantastic guide, Gizer, and a very friendly group.

The distances and terrain were different each day and all very interesting and well thought out.

Late March is a terrific time to go as not too hot and an abundance of wildflowers in bloom.

Our guide was a true professional and we feel went above and beyond to make our trip interesting and enjoyable.

The extent of his knowledge in all things, flora, fauna, history, and food was so helpful.

The staff at the center based hotel was excellent, as was the food! The history and beauty of North Cyprus is not to be missed.

We’re so glad we went! less....

Firstly we did not expect snow on this holiday! Nonetheless we had a very enjoyable week and met some lovely people in our group of 16.

Some parts of the itinerary had to be adapted and changed due to the weather conditions but this did not affect the overall enjoyment of the holiday.

Walking on the first couple of days was a bit tricky due to the snow and ice, meaning walking poles were essential.

In normal conditions none of the walks would have been especially challenging.

Gizer was a great guide, very knowledgeable and mindful of the group.

We appreciated the extra trips to Famagusta (on free day) and Nicosia (departure day).

Hotel Pia Bella is a good base with friendly staff and the bonus of heating in the bedrooms.

It has a lovely outside pool area (shame it was just too cold to enjoy).

Worth noting that if you enjoy wine the house stuff is not good, instead ask the hotel for a bottle (affordable) and keep behind the bar.

Organised restaurants were very good, especially the last evening one.

The restaurant next to the hotel serves a nice pizza too.

All in all a good holiday and so much history in Northern Cyprus less....

I am just back from an amazing week in North Cyprus as part of a lovely group, and led by fantastic guide, Gizer.

This trip is an interesting combination of walking and history which I very much enjoyed.

It was very hot at times; one of my highlights was swimming in the Mediterranean at the end of a long walk from Kantara on day 4.

We all went on the optional trip to Famagusta - this was well worth while.

We also very much enjoyed the local food and drink in the evenings! less....

Top marks for the packed lunches on the day trips, made by the guide's brother's local bakery.

The weather was fantastic on this trip which made a nice change from cold dreary England at this time of year.

An excellent week walking exploring North Cyprus at Christmas with a very pleasant and friendly group.

This is not just a walking trip for you get an excellent overview of the history of the ancient castles, monastries etc that you see that really adds to the quality of the holiday.

A very good variety of walks across different landscapes but mostly having views of the sea - expertly led by a superb guide.

Scenic walks (apart from the introductory one on Sunday which was a bit of a walk to nowhere) with great views from the top of the hills.

It was a bit hot but all the walkers coped with the permanent sunshine.

Gizer, the leader, is a very good organiser, with perfect timing and good knowledge of the history of the places we visited – Girne, Bellapais Abbey, Saint Hilarion, Kantara and Buffavento Castle (the walk up to it recompense the walker with breath-taking views).

He also organised the optional but very informative excursions to Famagusta and Nicosia which offered us the chance to find out a lot of facts about places we knew only from the news.

I would also like to commend Omar, the driver, very efficient as well, helpful and funny; he helped me learn more Turkish language than I knew before 😉.

The food was good, and the best dinners we had were at Niazi’s and Eminem (no connection with the rapper 😉).

The best lunch was at the Caravan Serai in Nicosia – thank you Gizer! Pia Bella Hotel was clean with good sized rooms, very professional, polite, and friendly service, good range of food items at the breakfast.

Al in all, a very rewarding holiday – Thanks to Exodus, Gizer, and everybody else who made it happen.

After great deliberation on whether to venture out on holiday again, we are glad we did.

This was an excellent trip & very well organised.

Exodus provided excellent advice & details of all the requirements necessary in view of COVID regulations.

We met with a sociable & lovely group of people and at 12 I think this was an ideal number.

This is our 3rd or 4th group holiday & after years of independent travel it is relaxing to just go with the flow & not have to be responsible for anything! The walking was superb - challenging in places but well worth the effort of some steep climbs.

The views were fantastic & we visited Crusader castles & monasteries.

Our guide Gizer was a great host & very knowledgeable about the history & culture of his country.
