Eco Tour Adventures offer a selection of tours which are a fantastic, insightful and easy way for you to discover some of the hidden treasures of the island. They are our favourite tour company and Andreas, the owner, offers guests all of his local knowledge; he knows all the historical sites, off-the-beaten-track hot spots, wineries and hidden restaurants. Various car seats are available for kids as well.
If you are staying at Aphrodite Hills then EcoTour Adventures can offer a pick-up service from your holiday home, making it the easiest way to get out there and see some more of the Cyprus that we love.
There are two main tours available: Troodos Mountains EcoTour Adventure and Akamas Coastal EcoTour Adventure (see details below), however Andreas also offers customised private tours which are tailored to your interests; call Andreas for a chat to discuss what he can offer.
AKAMAS – with EcoTour Adventures:
Another of our favourite destinations in Cyprus is the Akamas Peninsula National Park (230 square kilometres of pure beauty, and one of only 22 areas of endemism in Europe).
‘Roads’ here are not tarmacked, so book a trip with EcoTour Adventures to get the best insight and knowledge of the area. Each tour is an individual adventure so the route and stops may vary according to weather conditions/times/distances.Here is a typical example of a tour that gives you a good feel for the day:
Once collected you will drive to Akamas via the Paphos coast – first stop will be a short walk up Akavas Gorge – onto Lara Beach for a swim and a look into the turtle conservation area – drive through villages to a hand picked restaurant for lunch – visit the mythological Baths of Aphrodite, and stop off at a secluded beach for a swim in crystal clear waters (weather permitting). If enough time on the way back, stop for a short break at a typical Cypriot coffee shop.
The Akamas tour is just one of the tours that EcoTour Adventures provides: you can also book tours to Troodos Mountains and private tours which are tailored to your interests – they know all the historical sites, off-the-beaten-track hot spots, small family run wineries, hidden waterfalls and so much more. EcoTour Adventures take pride in showing their guests the ‘authentic Cyprus’. Various car seats for kids are available.

New to Cyprus in 2015 is the Sparti Platres Adventure Park which is located in the pretty village of Pano Platres in the Troodos mountains – a great stop-spot if you are exploring the area, but also well worth the drive for a specific visit.
The park features various courses with ropes and zip lines between the pine trees. Take your little monkey for some outdoor adventure – kids as young as 4 can enjoy the park (right through to adults), and safety is good too – using a French safety system.
