Cyprus // The Troodos Mountains //

Troodos village and around

At 1750m TROODOS village is only 250m below the island’s highest point – Mount Olympos. It has the longest history of catering for visitors (during the winter it doubles as a ski resort), and therefore has the best infrastructure, with numerous hotels and restaurants, extensive hiking and cycling trails, and a tourist office serving the whole region. It’s not particularly attractive – basically a clutch of tourist services housed around a central square – but if you want to get a taste of the mountains without roughing it too much, this is the place for you.
