  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    For over 33 years it was impossible to cross over the border into Northern Cyprus. This tour now offers you exactly that opportunity on this exclusive excursion into the untouched North.

    High in the Pentadaktylos Mountain ranges are the ruins of the once magnificent 800-year old Abbey of Bellapais. Get spectacular views down to Kyrenia on the coast and across the northern plains.

    Enjoy free time in the picturesque and historic port of Kyrenia and tour its medieval fortress, Kyrenia Castle. Absorb the sights and sounds as you wander round the harbour area.

    Itinerary

    You will be picked up from your hotel in Paphos in an air-conditioned coach and taken for a sightseeing tour of Northern Cyprus. An English-speaking guide will accompany you on this tour. Drive along the winding route up and over the Pentadaktylos Mountains with some spectacular views.

    Visit the famous Gothic Abbey of Bellapais, in the heart of a beautiful mountain village. Look for intricate stone carvings, delicate murals and a well-preserved 13th century church in this 800-year of abbey.

    Cross the border to the historic port of Kyrenia, under Turkish occupation since 1974.

    Stop at a local restaurant for a delicious local lunch and enjoy a glass of Cyprus wine with your meal.

    Visit the Kyrenia Castle. The medieval castle is believed to have been constructed to guard the town against the Arab raids in the 7th century. Inside the castle is a shipwreck museum, which contains the original cargo and equipment from the ancient ship of Kyrenia.

    Enjoy some free time at the picturesque Kyrenia Harbour.

    At the end of the tour you will be transported back to your hotel in Paphos.
