PISSOURI NATURE TRAILS

Troodos Mountains Trails

Pissouri is the third largest village in the district of Limassol and is located just off the A6 motorway, midway between Limassol and Paphos (34 kilometers from each) in the Southwest of Cyprus.


“The best view comes after the hardest climb.”


Pissouri Village is located about 3 kilometers from the sea on the Cape Aspro ridge, and about 500 feet above sea level (152 meters). 


The Trails


The area has 8 hiking trails, crossing through the hills, providing some spectacular views and an amazing geological experience, with fossils of sea life to be found many hundreds of feet above the sea level.

Four of the eight trails are open to both hiking🚶and biking 🚴
