It is a new hiking club, based in Nicosia, starting operation in Autumn 2014. There is an activity practically every weekend, from October to May. Activities alternate between Saturdays and Sundays.The club is modelled on the successful Athens Strollers hiking club, launched by Xenophon in Athens, Greece in 2009. Xenophon is a passionate hiker and nature lover, who returned to his native Cyprus in 2013, after a 30+ year career abroad.
The Cyprus Strollers welcome families (with children and/ or pets) living in Cyprus, irrespective of nationality, as well as visitors/ tourists, who love nature and search for hiking opportunities during their stay.Some walks last two to three hours and follow fairly easy routes or routes of medium difficulty. Other walks last between 1 ½ - 2 hours.
Each walk announcement includes reference to the degree of difficulty.
The majority of walks are suitable for people with a good health, a good heart and a good physical fitness. Some others last over 3 hours and involve more strenuous exercise which includes uphill climbing.These are given a degree of difficulty 3 rating and are addressed to hikers who have tested their ability in similar circumstances before and have a very good health and fitness.
Most walks start in the morning and are followed by lunch (optional) at a taverna, or a picnic. Others start in the early afternoon and are followed by a drink and a snack.
There is no membership fee to join the Cyprus Strollers and no charge is made for the walks. Your only cost is what you pay for your meal.
