Skiing in Cyprus



Think of Cyprus and you will probably imagine warm sunshine, sandy beaches and palm trees. I doubt very much you will think of it as a place to ski, but right in the middle of the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, towers Mt. Olympus. At just under 2000m it’s able to collect enough snowfall from late December to March to have its own resort. Originally built and operated by the British army after the Second World War, the 60’s saw the Cyprus Ski Club take over the resort and have since installed more lifts and expanded the terrain. The Troodos Mountains are only one hour away from Nicosia and Larnaka and about 40 minutes from Limassol and Paphos, convenient therefore for a day trip. If you are looking for a themed break this winter, why not add skiing to your to-do list? We can arrange skiing trips for just a day, or every day for a week. Couples, large parties are all welcome.  If you need accommodation, we also have a selection of great properties we can recommend to you, and the good news is you can book direct from the property owner!  Accommodation

If skiing is not your thing how about walking, historical tours, animal/wildlife tours, cycling, bowles, golf, horse riding? There really is something for everyone on the island of Cyprus.  So what are you waiting for? Book that deserved, low-cost, winter break with Themed Holiday Ideas!
