Cyprus

Sunny island in the Mediterranean Sea.

The Karpaz peninsula of North Cyprus, since British times also called the ’panhandle’, is the most unspoilt and most beautiful part of the island of Cyprus. You cycle through traditional villages with churches and mosques standing side by side, passing almond, carob and olive groves. Hibiscus, Jasmin, Bougainvillea and Oleander blossoms, Orange and lemon trees accompany your tour. Beautiful unspoilt sandy beaches invite you every day for a swim or a walk! Millions of migrating birds can be seen, turtles come out of the sea and lay their eggs in the sand; maybe you will see a group of shy wild donkeys playing on the shore. In spring time North Cyprus is famous for its wildflowers, especially for its orchids. Further highlights are ancient Salamis, the world famous king tombs, the Saint Barnabas monastery, medieval Famagusta, the genuine Cypriote hospitality with its delicious food and last not least 340 days of sunshine.

Itinerary

Mit dem Rad geht es zunächst nach Tuzla. Dann können Sie zu den weltberühmten Königsgräbern und zum Kloster Sankt Barnabas radeln. Es lohnt sich sehr die weitläufige antike Ruinenstadt Salamis zu erkunden. Äußerst reizvoll ist die Kombination von Ruinen, Sanddünen und Meerespanorama. Im Frühjahr ist das weitläufige Areal von den gelben Blüten der Akazien bedeckt. Weiter radeln Sie über Iskele nach Bogaz, welches für seine hervorragenden Fischrestaurants bekannt ist.

Today you will cycle across the Karpas peninsula. Olive, carob and fig trees edge the wayside. The traditional villages are adorned with bougainvilleas, hibiscus and jasmin. Shady coffee houses invite you for a rest. Your final destination, the hotel Nitovikla, is on the whole peninsula famous because of its great Cyprian kitchen.

Today you will start cycling close to the sea, before reaching the most exposed village on the peninsula, Dipkarpaz. It includes many different guesthouses with small garden and fields. In this Arcadian area are many things to visit.

Heute radeln Sie an die Südküste. Unser erstes Ziel ist der kilometerlange traumhafte Sandstrand. Es ist einer der wenigen Plätze im Mittelmeer wo die Caretta-Caretta und auch die Grüne Schildkröte noch ihre Eier ablegen können. Auch Wildeseln sind hier immer wieder zu sehen. Sie erreichen das Cap Andreas mit dem einsamen Kloster, wo nur mehr zwei Mönche ausharren. Korallenmöwen und Wanderfalken sind hier zu Hause und auch Syrien ist nur einen Katzensprung von hier entfernt.

Probably you will cycle again to the ‘Turtle Beach’ and spend a day on the beach.

Before cycling next to the northern coast to Agios Thyrsos, we recommend a side trip to the basilica Agios Philon with its antique harbour and further on to Aphrendrika. In this area you will just find a few sheepherder lodges.

Tour character

               You cycle mainly on quite, flat roads roads, sometimes smaller hills, but you will be compensated with wonderful sea views.
