A hiker's paradise

Marathasa is one of Cyprus’ most beautiful regions, set in the heart of the Troodos mountains, covered in forest, flowing with mountain streams and scattered with important cultural monuments. This area is a paradise for hikers and one of the best places for hiking in the Mediterranean. Besides the European long-distance path E4 which runs through Marathasa, a network of five circular hiking routes has been created here recently (2019), around the picturesque village of Kalopanayiotis with its excellent tourist infrastructure (guest houses, restaurants, cafés and easy access). Also, there are many “Nature Trails” in the area, signposted by the Forestry Department of Cyprus.
