Walking, Hiking & Trekking
Hiking tours for people of all ages and abilities are organised by a number of centres in the Kyrenia area. The most popular routes are in the Kyrenia Mountain range.
One particular tour party, organised by "Mountain Climbing Sport Association", meets every Sunday between October and the end of April, and twice a month (again on Sundays) between the summer months from May to the end of September. During the winter the tour programme is published at the beginning of every month, explaining the route and where to meet etc. All walks, as well as being good exercise, endeavour to show walkers interesting natural and historical features. The tours generally start at 7:30 a.m. and finish between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. It is essential that you wear proper grooved walking shoes. You must also take your own water, and a hiking stick is advisable.
