Luxury Grant Tour-Kykkos Monastery
It may be difficult to see the whole Troodos with its volcanic peaks and pine forests in one day, but we have designed an exclusive itinerary that includes all the major sites and allows you to experience all the different aspects of the Troodos mountains, in one action-packed sightseeing excursion.
Step aboard our air-conditioned mini-bus for a magic journey to these unforgettable destinations:
- Lefkara Village: Positioned right on the edge of the eastern Troodos, this village features narrow streets, newly restored stone architecture, small coffeeshops and great shopping opportunities for traditional handicrafts such as silver jewelry and the world famous "Lefkaritika" (hand-embroidered lace).
Passing alongside numerous small villages, our journey continues northwards through the outskirts of Lefkosia, the divided capital of Cyprus, and up into the elevated foothills of the Troodos Mts. We climb to elevations above the clouds to reach the highest point in Cyprus, Mt Olympus, for fantastic views over Morphou Bay, the Kormakiti Peninsula, the Mesoria plain and the Kyrenia Mts.
The world-renowned Kykko Monastery, not only the richest (golden mosaics, ancient icons, various religious relics), but also the largest and most prestigious active monastery in Cyprus. Don't miss the famous icon of Panayia Eleousa (Most Merciful Virgin Mary), painted by St Luke and believed "to produce miracles."
A giant natural waterfall, where ice-cold spring-fed mountain waters cascade over hard volcanic cliffs year-round.
A traditional village winery for free wine tasting and an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the whole wine-making process. On this tour, you will see and experience more of Cyprus in one day than many average tourists do in a week!
