Omodos Village and Kelephos Medieval Bridge Tour

9. Omodos Village and Kelephos Medieval Bridge Tour

Start your tour by heading to the Krassohoria wine villages. First, you will go to the expansive Paphos Forest and visit Kelephos' medieval Venetian bridge, which according to tradition is built on a camel trail. The trail was apparently used by camel caravans to transport mined material from the mines on the north side of the Troodos mountains to Paphos port. The local stream has water throughout the year. The setting is beautiful, with higher water flow during the rainy season and with more greenery in summer when the alders have their leaves and the bracken are full of life. You'll then move to Omodos village, one of the largest villages of Krasochoria. For years it has been well-known for its vineyards and wine and is still today known for its prime produce. Omodos developed around the ancient monastery of the Holy Cross (connected to St. Helen’s Passage to Cyprus) and is a popular destination for visitors. If you prefer, you can visit a less touristy village, for example Arsos or Vasa.

This is a great way to get out in the countryside and see a different side of Cyprus. They pack a lot in and it's really good value considering the cost of taxis on the island. Our guide Tiny was amazing and went above and beyond.
