Hiking with distant views to the sea, climbing sweet limestone cliffs and swimming in the 23°C warm Mediterranean in December - Cyprus has lots to offer for those who are weary of rain, darkness and snow in winter! I was able to escape to this beautiful island in early December and enjoyed the hospitality, sunshine and beautiful nature.

Meeting with friends and going on adventures with them is the best thing ever. Good thing I was on this trip on Cyprus with friends old and new, and that together we experienced all the wonderful things Cyprus has to offer - from great hikes to climbing and diving, delicious food which is plentiful and of course the friendly & kind Cypriots who were excited to show us the beauty of their island. Here’s a taster of what we saw on this island - more to come later this month!

And more beautiful hikes - Cyprus has a lot to offer to the outdoor enthusiast who needs sunshine and warmth in December. There’s a long-distance trail running across the island, as well as hundreds of longer and shorter trails, dozens of climbing crags and even Downhill MTB trails, though road biking is a lot more popular. I’ll tell you more about the possibilities of this small island later this month, so maybe follow me on Instagram to not miss any updates!
