Cyprus

Sunny island in the Mediterranean Sea.

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. Behind Erenköy you will reach the sea again and ride to Agios Thyrsos.

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

On the last stage, you will cycle through an idyllic, Arcadian landscape to the southern coast of the "panhandle". On your way to Kumyali, you will pass lonesome villages and have the possibility to go to some quiet beaches.

Tour character

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