This is a walking trip where we aim to show you off the beaten track villages and areas on two feet. This is arguably the lowest carbon form of transport and is certainly kinder on the environment, allowing guests to explore areas that would be unsuitable to do so in a vehicle.
Northern Cyprus beaches are very important for the nesting of the seriously endangered Green turtle, Chelonia mydas and the endangered Loggerhead turtle, Caretta caretta. Thanks to the protection work done by volunteer students from Britain and Europe, in conjunction with the Ministry of the Environment, these turtles are given the best start to their difficult lives. Scientific study is also carried out here to monitor activity and record data.
Nesting of the turtles takes place at night during June and July; the hatching season begins around the middle of July and continues to the end of September. Anyone who would like to experience the nesting or hatching of the Green and Loggerhead Turtle is welcome.
We always encourage our guests to purchase local produce, whether this in the small villages or in the town centre. We organise many tours, which take the guests round the beautiful villages and mountains Northern Cyprus has to offer. These include trips to Dipkarpaz, Famagusta, Nicosia, Karpaz Peninsula, Bellapais and St Hilarian.
On these trips we also take the guest around the local museums. Whilst on these trips we always use local restaurants and local shops. We always use local guides for our tours and when staying in hotels we always use local reps to ensure guests have access to the best local information. We support natural life and village life. When the guests arrive we want them to get to know our culture and show them how we live.
