A' route of experiential activities – General Description
The first route of experiential activities is a fun route with a multitude of activities, suitable for young people, which enables travelers to choose from a range of activities and combine them as they wish. This special route includes options for food/ brunch to a visit to waterfalls, wineries and/or processing plants producing traditional sweets.
This route is proposed to be done by road and can be performed without the help of a tour guide. In addition, due to the relatively close distance between the sites of this route, it is possible to complete it within the same day.
Due to the mild weather conditions that usually prevail in Cyprus, the route can be carried out all year round.
