Starting this cross country tour in the remote village of Arodes, high in the Akamas Park, we get to explore and enjoy one of the last true remaining wilderness areas in Cyprus. The Akamas Park is synonimous with rugged scenery, isolated villages, stunning coastlines and rich wildlife. We start by riding through timeless rural villages before heading onto the ridge that is the back bone of the Akamas Penninsular. A gradual descent along 15 kilometres of forest trails rewards us with breathtaking views to both the Lara and Polis coasts before we head into the forests.
After a break, we head further along the ridge to the lighthouse at the very westernmost tip of Cyprus.
An exciting track then leads us down to the northern coast of the Akamas Park and we enjoy a ride back along the stunning cliff tops, veiwing clear blue seas and remote, rocky coves along the way. The ride finishes at the Baths Of Aphrodite.
This ride is suitable for competant cyclists with a reasonable level of fitness. It's not technically hard but does involve a full day of riding much of which is off road. Some climbing is involved.
