Some places in the world are best explored on foot and beautiful North Cyprus is no exception, as Silver Travel Advisor writer Chrissy Nason discovered when she joined a group of Solos travellers on our North Cyprus Walking tour. Read on to follow Chrissy’s North Cyprus Walking adventure…
Back at the beginning of March, our partners Silver Travel Advisor sent writer Chrissy Nason to discover the beauty of North Cyprus when she joined a group of Solos travellers on our North Cyprus Walking
tour. This 7-night tour consists of four guided walks, along mountain tracks and crusader trails that encompass stunning sea views of the azure coast, beautiful castles and abbeys, plus delightful, traditional Cypriot villages – all of which make North Cyprus a walkers’ paradise.
Walking in North Cyprus Walking by Chrissy Nason
With an interesting group of Solos travellers this was one of the friendliest, inclusive and genuinely enjoyable holidays for some time.
Based at the family run Hotel Lapida, close to the Kyrenia mountains, four days of organised walks 8 – 10 miles each and two days of optional excursions provided the perfect balance for a week’s stay.
Visits to ancient Salamis, Famagusta and ghostly Varosha, desolate since partition in 1974, and the divided capital of Nicosia were enhanced by our sociable guide Merrek, who was equally knowledgeable about the island’s flora and fauna.
Mixed weather and looming Covid-19 could not dampen my enjoyment of this holiday!
