Things to do in Cyprus

You could easily while away your time in Cyprus strolling along a golden-sand beach or feasting on freshly caught seafood. But, for a deeper insight into the country’s rich history and culture, our guided activities can help you unfold the stories told in Paphos’s Roman mosaics, lead you through rock-carved burial tombs or give you a chance to sample vintages at a family-run winery.

Our hand-picked experiences have been chosen to show the many facets of Cypriot life, whether you’re interested in trying your hand at basket weaving, lunching on locally made cheeses in a traditional rural village or taking a privately guided hike in the shadow of Mount Olympus.
