Description

Our friendly and expert tour guide will collect you from your hotel for your full day North Cyprus tour exploring the area around Kyrenia. Enjoy stunning scenery and views of the countryside as we gently wind up into the mountains to St Hilarion Castle, the inspiration for Disney’s iconic Snow White’s Castle. Walk in the footsteps of Lusignan kings and Crusader knights to Prince John’s Tower at the very top, to take in the breath-taking views. Next, it’s a scenic journey into the Five Finger Mountains to beautiful Bellapais Abbey, an Augustinian monastery first built by monks in 1198. Your entertaining licensed tour guide will reveal the fascinating history of the “Abbaye de la paix” with its courtyard pavilions and magnificent Gothic refectory set on a flat mountain terrace. Soak up the lovely views from the walls down to the shimmering North Cyprus coastline below, or take a short stroll around Bellapais village, the inspiration for writer Laurence Durrell’s book “Bitter Lemons”. Join your fellow travellers for a delicious lunch at a local restaurant. (Optional) The afternoon is yours to explore Kyrenia itself. This delightful former Colonial town is centred around a near-perfect curved Venetian harbour. Stroll through narrow winding medieval streets lined with quirky shops, before emerging into the bright sunlight of Kyrenia’s harbour. Treat yourself to a Turkish coffee or cooling ice cream at one of the many harbour cafes, accompanied by the gentle lapping of waves and the bobbing fishing boats. All too soon, it’s time to return to your hotel in the Kyrenia, Famagusta or Nicosia areas, after a wonderful day exploring just a few of our wonderful North Cyprus attractions.
