Bellapais Abbey and Boufavento castle

Private tour in Kyrenia

Tour Price : €200 Duration : 6 hours Languages: Greek, English, Spanish, German

The trip starts and finishes in Nicosia (unless other arrangements are made, possibly at a different price), has two main suggested parts and can be customised as per travelers' preference :

This excursion includes two of the best attractions in Cyprus and combines the exploration of :

1) gothic Bellapais Abbey, that dates back to the 13th century, has some quite preserved parts (eg. the refectory), is found at an elevation about 200 m high and offers commanding views below, with

2) the breathtaking views from the (ruins of the) Byzantine castle of Boufavento (dating back at least 1,000 years), on the second highest peak of rugged Pentadactylos mountain range (elevation close to 900 m).

Usually the trip includes also a visit to pretty Kyreneia port (and optionally to Kyreneia castle).

Travellers should keep in mind that visiting Boufavento castle requires a steep one-km long, 100+meters elevation difference, walk up and down from the parking place to the castle itself. Most of the walk is on a paved trail (much of it includes stairs). 

Please remember that Phivos is the author of the book 'Exploring Authentic Cyprus' and offers services around the whole island, including walking trips. We can customise your trip in a way that best matches your preferences.
