Bring your swimwear, and snorkelling gear, and join us for a superb adventure to Cyprus’ jewel, the AKAMAS peninsular. A World Heritage Site, its countryside, raw and undeveloped, this unique area is home to endemic species of flora &fauna.
Features of the day include a visit to Lara Bay, breeding territory of the Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta Caretta), traditional village life, the natural springs of Baths of Aphrodite, legendary for the gift of eternal youth and beauty with a splash of the spring’s water, the fishing village and Port of Latchi. There is the opportunity for a mini-meze style lunch in a Greek Cypriot Taverna by the sea in Latchi, plenty of chances for cooling off and taking a swim, as well as getting to know the locals, and perhaps a spot of wine-tasting. Trips run throughout the Spring, Summer, and Autumn. Our drivers are professional, our jeeps licensed and fit-for-purpose. We will be going off-road in parts (so bring a sense of humour!). 4 adults guaranteed places every day. Jeeps are licensed for 10 passengers plus the driver - however our policy is to keep to a maximum of 8 adult passengers for your comfort (unless of course you are a family or group of 9 or 10 who all wish to go together). Jeeps normally travel alone, however for larger groups, more jeeps are available.
